Employment Law Cases We Handle

Our law firm has the knowledge and skill needed to handle cases in the following practice areas:

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace is prohibited by North Carolina and federal laws. Employers must be proactive in keeping a harassment-free environment and training workers in harassment laws.

Seek an employment attorney’s advice before resigning or reporting incidents. These complex situations can result in backlash. Workers who quit can lose some legal rights.

Gender Discrimination

Gender discrimination includes treating employees differently because of their gender. It can occur through direct actions like hiring or firing, unfair workplace policies, or a hostile environment.

Wage and Hour Claims

Wage and hour claims typically stem from a failure to pay wages or not compensating employees for overtime. It can also include mislabeling employees and violating minimum wage laws. Employees may be mislabeled as independent contractors or interns.

Severance Negotiations

An unexpected job loss can cause stress to the employee and an entire family due to a lack of income or benefits. Sometimes, companies offer a terminated employee a severance package. An employment attorney can help you negotiate a fair severance package if your terms are unacceptable.

Other cases our attorneys handle include:

  • Race and national origin discrimination can occur in instances similar to gender discrimination.
  • Age discrimination claims are common. Employees over 40 are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.
  • Federal and North Carolina laws protect employees from religious discrimination, harassment, and unfair grooming or dress requirements. Employees are owed reasonable compromise of religious practices.
  • Prejudice claims for pregnant employees are guided under the federal Pregnancy Discrimination Act. This act protects expectant mothers who work through their pregnancies. Employers must provide reasonable expectations like reduced duties and temporary leave from work.

Whistleblowers take personal risks and put a lot of effort into making their claims. They may be eligible for compensation and regain their employment.
