We are employment attorneys fighting for employee rights.
Our firm has experience helping all types of employees including blue collar workers, executives, private sector employees, and federal employees. Our employment attorneys help these employees in all areas of employment law. We help employees who have already suffered injustice. We also assist employees who want help dealing with human resources before the injustice occurs. For instance, not only do we take wrongful termination cases, we are happy to help employees obtain the medical leave or reasonable accommodations they deserve. Also, though we are located in Atlanta, we help all employees across the state of Georgia, and all types of federal employees, nationwide. We also offer different and affordable fee arrangements from contingency fee arrangements to flat fee arrangements depending on each case.
Our attorneys help private sector employees.
As only one example of cases we handle, our employment attorneys fight overtime and wage theft. Such illegal theft occurs when management forces employees to work “off the clock.” It also occurs when management illegally classifies workers as “independent contractors” to avoid paying them due wages. Overtime and wage theft can occur in many other ways too.
As another example, our employment attorneys help individuals negotiate everything arising in the scope of employment. For instance, we help negotiate severance agreements. Our employment attorneys also assist with negotiating reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities.
Further, our employment attorneys restore justice for our clients when they are wrongfully terminated (or face an adverse employment action) after engaging in protected activity. This protected activity can include standing up for other workers, reporting illegal activity such as harassment, or taking necessary medical leave. Protected activity includes much more though. Such blatant retaliation is often illegal and immoral.
And, in many of our cases, our employment attorneys take on discrimination and harassment. This includes harassment and discrimination based on sex, race, national origin, color, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability status, and protected activity. We handle cases whether the discrimination or harassment is individualized or systemic. For instance, we take cases where an employee is sexually harassed by her supervisor. We also deal with cases where an employer refuses to consider hiring African American applicants as a class.
