The attorneys at Shelby Roden recognize that employment related issues can be stressful. We work with employees to provide common-sense solutions to complex employment disputes. Under federal law, employees are protected from discrimination on the basis of race, gender, disability, national origin, and age in the workplace. In addition, employees have rights to minimum wage, overtime pay, safe working conditions, and access to leave in order to address family and medical issues. We strive to ensure these protections for employees.
When problems in the workplace arise, employees are sometimes hesitant to report problems out of fear of retaliation from their employer in the form of termination, demotion, or docked time. Fortunately, employees are provided protections for coming forward to report issues such as discrimination or harassment, health and safety violations, suspicions that their employer is defrauding the federal government, or on the job injuries.
If you are an employee and feel that you have a claim as a result of an employment related issue, please feel free to contact us.
Our firm knows that for many employers, particularly small businesses, labor law issues are foreign territory. When challenges arise as a result of union representation, union grievances, and the collective bargaining process associated with labor contracts, employers must be prepared to meet these challenges with experienced legal counsel. The complex and politically-influenced nature of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) makes labor law particularly difficult to navigate without proper training and knowledge concerning such issues.
If you are working through collective bargaining or union issues, it is important to partner with attorneys well versed in labor law. Please feel free to contact us should you need a trusted advisor to help you through such matters.
