EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEYS THAT GET RESULTS
Sommers Schwartz attorneys have unique insight into how employment disputes get resolved.
Employment law can be complicated, so for any employment law issue you may encounter, Sommers Schwartz is your first phone call.
State and federal laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Prevailing Wage laws, and the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) shield workers from workplace abuses. In some situations, it is apparent that an employee’s rights have been violated, but in other cases, those violations are much more subtle and can be difficult to prove in court.
When contracts are breached, especially an executive employment contract, legal representation for both the employee and the employer is necessary, no matter which party is responsible for the contract breach. The consequences can be serious, and these cases require guidance and direction from a knowledgeable professional experienced in navigating the ins and outs of employment law.
Claims of discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace also require learned counsel and capable hands. Employee discrimination is one of the most common violations of employees’ rights and happens when an employer harasses or maltreats an employee because of his or her race, disability, color, age, religion, height, gender, weight, or national origin. If you have been the victim of discrimination, or if your business is the target of such an accusation, you need to act quickly.
Other Employment Agreements & Disputes
Sometimes employment disputes arise from business operations, workplace policies, and day-to-day operations, and compensation structures, with issues involving:
- Performance awards
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Breach of non-compete agreements
- Breach of confidential information agreements
- Sales commission disputes
- Misappropriation of trade secrets
Finding Solutions Out of Court
While litigation can be an effective way to end an employment dispute, we know it’s not the only way – nor is it always the best way – to obtain the best results for our clients. We believe in the importance of determining when and how to litigate, and when to find a solution through negotiation and creative thinking. This philosophy comes from years on the front lines fighting on behalf of both employers and employees.
For all of the employment law issues that arise in your job or your workplace, you need Sommers Schwartz. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.
