Our labor and employment law practice focus is on employee side litigation. We have experience representing employees in state and federal court. We have worked on cases relating to all areas of employment law from wage and hour disputes to racial discrimination claims.
Under state and federal law it is illegal to discriminate, harass, deny employment, terminate or demote an employee because of race, age, sex, or a disability, although this list is not exhaustive.
