Various rights and protections are afforded to employees by the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar state laws as well, such as the Law Against Discrimination. Experienced attorneys can tell you if you have been denied any of your rights under these laws.
You may have been discriminated against, blatantly or less obviously, and you deserve justice. If a company layoff includes a disproportionate number of people in a protected class, such as above a particular age or one particular gender, you may have a discrimination claim against your former employer. Have you been sexually harassed or been treated inappropriately at work in a way that is perceived as sexual? Depending upon the specific circumstances of your situation, you may have a claim.
If you have a contract (oral or written), employee handbook or manual, or a collective bargaining agreement, these must be reviewed as they may afford you significant protections.
The courts are expanding the protections to which employees are entitled under the Conscientious Employee Protection Act and the Law Against Discrimination. It is critical to consult with an attorney to assess what constitutes protected conduct under these acts and who is eligible for those protections. Our attorneys are waiting for your call and ready to help you.
