Employment Law Attorney
Employment law deals with workplace-related matters and has been put in place to protect employees from unfair treatment and/or injury at work. Individuals go to work with the expectation of being treated fairly and with respect. Sadly, some employers either do not know the law, or ignore the law in order to help their own bottom line. In this section you will find useful information regarding employment law and your rights. If you believe you have been mistreated or are a victim of unlawful discrimination, please contact our employment law attorney.
Employment law is comprised of a broad spectrum of state and federal statutes and administrative regulations. These laws are designed to shield you from unfair treatment at work. At the Velasquez Law Firm, we protect the rights of employees who are victims of various illegal employment law practices, including:
- Wrongful termination
- Sexual harassment
- Missed meal breaks
- Wage and hour violations
- Unpaid overtime
- Disability discrimination
Because employment laws vary from state to state, they can be very difficult to interpret. At the Velasquez Law Firm, we can help you understand how employment laws affect you and determine whether you are entitled to receive compensation. We have the necessary knowledge, research skills, resources and experience to obtain a successful resolution in your case. We pride ourselves on providing competent, aggressive and personalized legal services to all of our employment law clients.
In addition to state laws, employees are also protected by federal law and the constitution. Some of constitutional protections include: the Fifth Amendment, which guarantees equal protection under the law and the 14th Amendment, which ensures that all citizens receive due process. Other important federal employment laws include: Anti-Discrimination Laws, the Equal Pay Act, the Civil Rights Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, to list a few.
If you believe you have been a victim of unfair treatment at workplace, please don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule a one-time complimentary case evaluation with our experienced employment law attorney.
