Representing employees is all about making sure each of us has a level playing field on which to compete in the workplace. Without a level playing field, no other civil rights can be achieved.
We are all taught from childhood that diligence and hard work will bring us prosperity and success. It’s hard enough to survive in this world toiling 40+ hours a week in jobs which may or may not be personally rewarding. To have our performance tainted, blocked, inhibited, or in any way harmed by someone else’s discriminatory conduct is abhorrent. To have our labor go underpaid, unpaid or exploited by employers which do not comply with basic wage ordinances is unconscionable. To have employers cheat us out of commissions or bonuses earned through our reliance upon the company’s compensation policies is intolerable.
The civil rights movements which gave rise to workplace fairness legislation all have one common goal—that we be judged by the content of our character. The only way this vision will ever be fully realized is when the workplace is free from discrimination and everyone has the opportunity to make their own way, to put food on the table for their family, and to reap the benefits of their own labor.
We work with clients who have the courage to come forward to protect their rights to be free from discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage and hour violations, and any other violations that occur in the workplace. We negotiate employment agreements, provide advice on employment matters, and litigate to protect and enforce our clients’ rights.
