Deason & Archbold focuses exclusively on labor and employment matters . While employment law includes various distinct areas, it can be distilled down to the three broad categories of compensation, leave provisions, and adverse employment actions. These categories are more commonly referred to as Wage and Hour and Meal Period Violations; Sick Time, Medical and Pregnancy Leave; and Wrongful Termination, Sexual Harassment and Discrimination, respectively.
WAGE AND HOUR AND MEAL PERIOD VIOLATIONS
Employers frequently fail to pay their employees in accordance with the law. The motive is often very simple….the less money the employer pays its employees, the more money the employer makes. Our extensive experience in wage and hour disputes includes helping employees recover more than $40 million dollars for unpaid overtime, minimum wage and missed meal breaks. LEARN MORE.
SICK TIME, MEDICAL LEAVE AND PREGNANCY LEAVE
An employee’s rights to sick time, pregnancy leave, and/or family medical leave are contained within several federal and state statutes. The complexity of these statutes often results in costly mistakes by employers. We counsel and represent employees regarding their rights under these statutes. LEARN MORE.
WRONGFUL TERMINATION, SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION
An employee cannot be lawfully terminated for following the law or asserting his or her rights under the law. We represent clients in matters of wrongful termination, discipline and demotion, including claims for retaliation, wrongful termination in violation of public policy, and violations of state or federal whistleblower protection laws. Learn more. It is also unlawful for an employer to engage in, or even condone, sexually harassing or discriminatory conduct in the workplace. Our firm represents clients on all matters related to employment discrimination and sexual harassment, including discrimination based on gender, pregnancy, race, disability, national origin, sexual orientation and age.
