Employment Litigation encompasses many different types of disputes between employees and employers. Claims arising in the workplace include wrongful termination; termination of health plan, pension, and other employee benefits; refusal to pay wages owed; breach of contracts with employees; and termination of an employee under whistle blower circumstances. Whistleblower laws, both federal and state, protect an individual's right to bring a claim against an entity that has engaged in illegal conduct and defrauds our government.
Additionally, there are a wide variety of litigation services that can be provided for employees who have suffered from discrimination while on the job, including illegal treatment by employers based upon an employee's race, religion, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, and handicap. There are many federal and state laws that protect individuals against discrimination and sexual harassment, and provide a legal means to obtain money damages when an employee has been discriminated against. The legal remedies may include obtaining your job back, monetary damages for lost wages and emotional distress, and legal fees and costs that you have incurred as a result of the wrongful conduct and emotional pain.
