Regardless of your experiences in the workplace, you deserve to know your rights as a worker. Discriminatory treatment and unfair labor practices are just some of the actions that the federal and state government can protect you from. If you feel like your employment rights as a worker have been compromised, call today.
Common Employment Law Issues:
Wrongful termination: Race, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, or age may not be a factor for an employee’s termination. Hiring and promotion decisions may also fall under this category.
Unfair labor practices:
Employers must comply with laws like the Fair Labor Standards act, which determines the length of time an employee must work and the amount they are paid. Your employer is also responsible for providing you with meal breaks, rest breaks, and ensuring that you are not coerced or forced to work off the clock.
It is the responsibility of the employer to provide a workplace environment that adheres to standards of privacy. For example, personal telephone conversations cannot be monitored by the employer, nor can the employee’s car be subject to a search.
If you suspect that you or someone you know are subject to an employment law dispute, call today and speak with attorney James E. Nobles. Remember: the consultation is 100% FREE!
