How Does Employment Law Protect You?

Employment law only protects you if you know your rights. When something happens in the work environment, most people don’t have the time to spend investigating the complexities of regional law, cases rulings, and similar court decisions—they need help right away. That’s where we come in. The Law Office of Roosevelt Nesmith has spent years focusing on labor laws assisting people just like you, to understand and aggressively protect their rights. Here are just some of the areas where we have a track record of success:

  • Discrimination
  • Employee contracts
  • Wages: Comp time, minimum wage, overtime, snow days, garnishment, vacation pay
  • Medical and family leave
  • Layoffs
  • Sexual harassment
  • Unemployment law
  • Vacation leave
  • Drug tests
  • Maternity and parental leave
  • Employee privacy
  • Foreign labor
  • Harassment of whistleblowers

What to do When You’re Facing Employment Discrimination

Federal law strictly prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of their race, religion, color, sex, disability, age (in some cases), and genetic information. If you’ve experienced employment discrimination the first thing you should do is seek guidance from a trusted legal resource. We’ll analyze the unique details of your case and present you with a solid legal plan that protects your rights and gives you confidence when presenting your issue to the offending party and your employer.

What Does Unlawful Termination Mean?

There are no specific pieces of the law written strictly for unlawful termination. However, being fired for discriminatory reasons such as breach of contract or company policy violations made by the employer, you have a good reason to pursue the protection of your employee rights. In addition to this, if you have been made to feel you’ve been forced to leave your position you can file a constructive discharge suit against your previous employer.

How Does Employee Contract Law Work?

Our top lawyers explain the fine details surrounding employee contract law so you never sign anything without knowing exactly what it means. In the event your contract has been breached or terminated by either party, we can investigate the details for you, to ensure your best interests are being served.

Filing for Workers Compensation

Workers compensation law is in place to assist employees who have been injured while performing the duties and responsibilities of their job. We will help you recover lost wages and medical expenses incurred, as well as disability and rehabilitation costs. If you have been injured on the job, the last thing you need is the added stress of defending your rights against company litigators. We act as a protective barrier between you and your employer.
