If you believe your legal rights have been violated by your employer, please contact our office for a confidential consultation, free of charge. We are here to listen, to address your concerns, and to work for you when your employer has let you down.
The law is clear and direct: employees may not be subjected to adverse or unfair treatment on the basis of their race, national origin, gender, age, religion, marital status, disability, or sexual orientation. Discrimination and harassment can take many forms in the workplace. If you suspect that you are a victim of any one of these situations, call employment attorney N. William Metke today for a free consultation.
Employers are never permitted to pay less than the statutory minimum hourly wage. In general, they must also provide meal and rest breaks, and must pay overtime wages for work beyond eight hours per day, or forty hours per week. Employers who fail to meet these minimal requirements may be breaking the law, and you may be entitled to damages. Call us today for an evaluation of your potential wage-theft claim.
All too often, individuals who speak up in the workplace are later targeted for retaliation, such as unmerited discipline, negative performance evaluations, or wrongful termination. Such actions may be prohibited by law. Employment attorney N. William Metke will stand up for you when your rights have been denied. Call today for a free consultation. We'll work for you when your employer fails to.
