Sexual Harassment

Workplace harassment encompasses much more than inappropriate sexual contact. Any conduct of a sexual nature ranging from innuendo to inappropriate requests in exchange for favors can be sexual harassment if it creates a hostile work environment or interferes with the ability of someone to perform their job.

Wages & Benefits

Minimum wage, overtime issues, health benefits and retirement are just a few of the common areas where employees and employers commonly have wage and benefits disputes that can lead to the courtroom.


Discrimination comes in many shapes and forms. While racial discrimination is likely the most common form that you hear about, any member of a protected class can face discrimination in the workplace. This includes discrimination based on age, gender, religion, race, national origin, disability, sexual orientation and more.

Working Conditions

Employers are responsible for ensuring the workplace is safe and free of health hazards based on the guidelines set by OSHA. If safety hazards exist, an employer must take steps to eliminate them. If they do not, employees have the right to report the problems to OSHA without fear of discrimination or retaliation.

Other Employment Law Problems

Everything from workplace privacy and whistleblowing to the hiring and separation process can result in disputes between employees and employers that require experienced legal representation. Many times, these can be resolved before ever reaching the courtroom; however, you need experienced employment law counsel on your side in case it does.
