Employment Law

Proudly Serving The People of North & South Carolina

In employer-employee relationships, the employer tends to hold the power.

Employers decide when their workers work, how much they are paid, and in many cases, can fire workers with minimal notice or reason. It is not uncommon for employers to abuse their authority. Employers frequently overstep their bounds and engage in practices that violate state and federal laws designed to protect worker rights.

Every day, workers are mistreated and exploited. In white-collar and blue-collar industries alike, people endure unsafe and uncomfortable working environments to avoid losing their jobs. People expose themselves to sexual harassment, workplace discrimination, and violations of wage and hour laws. When they are fired, they often feel they have no way to respond or fight back.

With offices in Charlotte, Hickory, and Greenville, North Carolina, Rock Hill, Columbia, South Carolina, and serving throughout both states, the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor P.C. is available to provide help to workers whose employers have taken advantage of them.

Discrimination remains a significant problem in the workplace. Workers are treated differently from their co-workers because of their race, gender, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, or disability. Prejudice operates to deny people jobs, promotions, pay raises, and other workplace benefits.

Workplace discrimination is illegal.

If you feel you are being discriminated against in the workplace, call the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor.

Problem with your paycheck? The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor are available to help workers fight to be paid correctly for the work they perform. Every day, employees are forced to work off the clock or are not paid for all the hours they work remotely from home on their laptops or smartphone. Other workers are misclassified by their employer as exempt or salaried and are cheated out of their overtime pay. Some employees are even classified as independent contractors and denied wages as well as other workplace benefits. If you feel you have been mistreated, call the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor to discuss your problem.

Getting fired or laid off from a job is something no worker wants to experience. Job loss can be unexpected, with no prior warning from the employer. It’s not only stressful for the employee but her entire family.

Often, the terminated employee is offered a severance agreement. At first glance, the severance package may seem generous, and employees are quick to accept. However, it may be wise to discuss the agreement with someone who understands all the language contained in the agreement at this stressful moment. The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor are available to discuss your severance agreement and help you negotiate your severance package.

Many employers require employees to sign restrictive non-compete agreements as part of starting a new job. It is common for a person to be so excited about the opportunity for a new job that they sign the non-compete agreement without fully understanding the restrictions or the impact the contract can have on them in the future. These agreements can deny the employee the ability to get a better job with greater pay down the road. The Law Offices of Jason E Taylor are available to meet with you and explain how these non-compete agreements will impact the future.

Sexual harassment is a problem in the workplace, and it affects men as well as women. Often, employers fail to take the necessary steps to stop the harassment. Victims are left with the responsibility of preventing harassment in the workplace.

If sex has been demanded from you to get a job or a pay raise, or if you have been exposed to sexual comments, dirty jokes, text messages that contain nude photos, or any other offensive behavior, contact the Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor and let us help you fight to end the harassing behavior.
