Employees are protected by a number of state and federal workplace laws. If you feel your rights have been violated, you may be able to file a claim against your employer for violation of these laws, including but not limited to:
Workplace laws have been put into place by the federal, state and local governments for years. There are very complicated workplace laws that only an experienced employment law attorney can help walk you through.
As experienced employment law attorneys in the Memphis and St. Louis areas, we can help get you to a comfortable understanding of what laws protect you as an employee.
Furthermore, in addition to contacting an employment law attorney, employees should talk to both their Human Resources department at their job and do some research from the Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC can help support employees by laying out all of the laws the employee may feel their employer is breaking.
However, if you are an employer, we can help you as well. Employers need just as much help setting up all of their policies to make sure they are following all of the workplace laws that exist and affect their business. Human Resources professionals are a good starting point to understand these common laws, but an employment attorney can help you understand all of the laws that have to be addressed in your business.
If you have an employment issue, the wisest move you can make is to consult with an experienced employment attorney to review the facts of your claim and help you determine the best way to move forward.
