Employment Discrimination and Harassment

Are You a Victim of Employment Discrimination or Harassment?

Employees are protected by a complex network of laws that dictate how employers should treat current employees, former employees, and job applicants. I have dedicated my practice to protecting people against illegal employment practices.

While it may seem as if employees are powerless against the companies they work for, there are numerous ways that people can assert their rights. I have helped many clients protect their employee rights by fighting back in court.

If you have been a victim of employment discrimination or harassment, use my online form or call me at 888-764-4141 for a free initial consultation.

Overtime Claims

Have You Been Denied Overtime Pay?

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) provides employees with many legal protections and establishes many rules concerning how employees are to be paid. Many employers violate these rules. Alabama workers end up paying the price. Employers use a variety of illegal practices to deny employees the wages to which they are entitled under the FLSA, including:

  • Using common wage rules for all employees
  • Classifying hourly employees as salaried
  • Making employees work off the clock
  • Reducing paid hours but not working hours
  • Paying straight hourly wages beyond 40 hours

If you have been denied overtime pay, use my online form or call me at 888-764-4141 for a free consultation.
