Nearly everyone is governed by employment law at some point in his or her life. For example, if you have a job, you are subject to state and federal employment laws, and your employer has certain duties and obligations relating to your employment that may need to be enforced through legal action.
Our firm represents individuals who have been wrongfully terminated, as well as those suffering from discrimination on the basis of age, gender, religion, race, nationality, disability, and other classifications. We also represent clients through the appeals processes of adverse unemployment determinations and workers compensation claims. Additionally, our firm represents individual employees and groups of employees for violations of wage and hour requirements.
Employment cases are often a complicated mix of administrative agency representation (before a commission such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) and civil litigation (representation in state and federal courts). Typically, one must first exhaust all of the administrative relief available prior to bringing an action in court. For this reason, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible, so that your attorney may advise you of how to properly file a “Charge” with an administrative agency and preserve your right to sue in court if necessary.
If you feel that your employment rights have been violated, please contact the lawyers at Keith, Miller, Butler, Schneider, and Pawlik, PLLC, so that we may evaluate your case as quickly as possible. Our experienced team will work tirelessly to secure your rights and enforce them accordingly.
