Employment Law

At Edwards Kirby, we represent employees who have witnessed fraud or corruption by an employer, experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, been retaliated against for speaking out against wrongful behavior in the workplace or those who have been cheated out of hard-earned wages

Employees who work hard and play by the rules earn the right to respect and fairness in the workplace. At Edwards Kirby, we help hold employers accountable when they deny their employees these rights.

Under federal and state law, employees have a right to work in an environment free from discriminatory treatment, unlawful pay practices or fear of retaliation. Some common unlawful employment practices include:

  • Employment Discrimination: Discriminating against employees in hiring, firing, pay or other terms and conditions of employment based on gender, race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion or sexual orientation.
  • Equal Pay Violations: Failing to pay employees equally for doing the same work regardless of gender, race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation.
  • Retaliation Against Employees Who Speak Out: Retaliating against employees who assert their right to speak out against fraud, corruption, unsafe working conditions or discrimination in the workplace, often through termination or unfair terms and conditions of employment.
  • Unpaid Overtime Wages: Taking advantage of employees by failing to pay them their earned wages or overtime compensation.

 

We believe every employee deserves to be treated lawfully and with respect. We fight for fairness in the workplace. If you have been subjected to any of these unlawful practices, please contact us or fill out the form below for a free case evaluation.
