As a business owner, manager, or supervisor, you may see or become aware of workplace misconduct or other complaints of unlawful activity at work, such as discrimination or sexual harassment. If an employee makes such a claim, speaking with an attorney before the situation escalates is crucial.

Sexual Harassment Claims

If a current or former employee makes a complaint about sexual harassment, employers are under certain obligations to address those concerns. Speaking with an attorney to help address the claims can help you take steps in the right direction.

Wage and Hour Claims

 The Department of Labor has strict and specific rules surrounding how, when, and how much employees should be paid for their time. Staying compliant and properly addressing employee complaints can help businesses avoid costly lawsuits.

Discrimination Claims

Terminating employees can come with risks–including claims of discrimination. If a current or former employee claims they’re being discriminated against, it’s important to speak with an attorney to understand your risk or liability, and how to properly address the claims.

Retaliation Claims

Retaliation claims are serious, and can make other claims of harassment or discrimination more difficult to de-escalate. If you’re concerned an employee may claim retaliation, or if they already have, call us to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.
