Workers' Rights

The Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) was enacted during the Great Depression, when workers faced long hours, harsh conditions, and unjust pay without recourse. The FLSA established a federal minimum hourly wage and child labor laws. When the FLSA was enacted in 1938, the minimum hourly wage was only $0.25. In 2020, it’s $7.25. State laws also protect workers’ rights, and may provide additional rules employers must adhere to in order to create fair workplaces and protect worker dignity. If you think your rights are being violated or are interested in setting up a worker friendly workplace, contact for an appointment.

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Relief

In the United States, laws protect everyone’s dignity at work. Unfortunately, individuals face derogatory comments, unequal treatment, and unwanted sexual advances. Sometimes deprivation of dignity escalates, threatening workplace safety, progressing to threats and assault. 

 

Sexual harassment has particularly severe consequences for employees who cannot afford to risk their jobs.  I’ve been subject to sexual harassment at work, so I know how difficult it can be to overcome. You don’t have to be a victim.

 

 I Believe You. I Understand. I will fight to: 

  • Stop The Problem.  If retained early, I may be able to convince an employer to intervene on your behalf.  The harasser may be fired or relocated, or you may be moved to a different location. I’ll help you understand your choices, the process, and what your employer needs to do to adhere to the laws of the land.
     

  • Facilitate an Exit Route. Sometimes, clients don’t want to stay or go to court. They just want to leave. I may be able to help you negotiate an exit package to secure your privacy, protect your reputation, ensure your access to unemployment benefits, and enable you to apply for a new job. The difference between this firm and others is that I am with you every step of the way, even once the package is negotiated, to help you navigate the next steps forward after you leave a job.
     

  • Lawsuits.  Clients often want to go to court to seek adequate remedies. Employers may be unwilling to negotiate an out-of-court resolution. I have represented clients in sexual harassment, race discrimination, gender discrimination, and disability discrimination matters. You may want to go to court, seek arbitration, or bring your matter before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. I will help you assess whether litigation will bring justice and fairness. I will help you understand the risks and benefits involved, and if you are a candidate for a law suit, I will fight for your rights.
