Has Your Employer Treated You Unfairly?
Work is an essential part of life in America. Work enables us to earn a living, provide for our families, and contribute to society. We spend the majority of our adult years working and putting forth our best effort for an employer. It’s something most of us take pride in. In return, we expect to be evaluated on our performance, compensated fairly, and treated with respect and dignity by our employers.
However, the worker–employer relationship isn’t always so cut and dry. Employers may fire, discriminate against, harass, and treat employees unfairly based on their gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, religion, national origin, race, gender reassignment, military/veteran status, physical/mental disability, perceived disability, and several other factors. Other times, employees are treated unfairly because they have asserted their legally protected rights within the workplace. For example, speaking out against illegal or unsafe practices in the workplace.
It’s illegal for an employer to treat employees unfairly for any of these reasons, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Employers will often harass, fire, intimidate, and withhold pay from employees in direct violation of state and federal laws. If you feel that your rights as a worker have been violated, where do you turn?

Don’t Wait to Take Action
One thing everyone who is thinking about filing a lawsuit should know, is that the statute of limitations on most employment law cases is very strict. Once the deadline hits, that’s it. You’ll have lost your chance to hold your current employer or former employer accountable for any wrongdoing.
So don’t wait! If you believe you have been wronged or treated unfairly by your employer, it’s important to find competent and experienced employment law attorneys so that your discrimination, harassment, retaliation, or wrongful termination case can be filed on time and without procedural error.
If you’re not sure if you have a case, contact us anyway. We’ll review the facts and give you our honest opinion about what your next steps should be. It’s better to come in before the statute of limitations has run out and find out you don’t have a case than it is to find out you have a strong case—if only the statute of limitations hadn’t run out.
