Prosecuting workplace discrimination, violations, and unsafe work environments on your behalf.

What are Labor and Employment Laws?

Employment law governs how employees and employers interact with each other. State employment laws address regulations and rules specific to a state and will vary from state to state. Federal employment laws address regulations and rules for the entire U.S. The laws cover five categories: 

  1. Compensation: Protects employees who get sick from their job or are hurt on the job, and varies from state to state and varies for federal employees.
  2. Discrimination: Unfair treatment due to age (40 or older), color, disability, genetic information, race, national origin, religion, or sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation).
  3. Labor: Covers minimum wage, child labor laws, minimum paid rest periods, minimum meal periods, overtime, and misclassification (classified as an independent contractor instead of an employee).
  4. Hiring and termination: Wrongfully fired or discharged from your job in violation of your state or federal laws or your employment contract. However, in "employment-at-will" states, you can be let go for any or no reason, with or without notice, as long as it does not violate a law.
  5. Workplace safety: Protects the safety and health of workers in the workplace and is overseen by the Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA).

What if my Employer Violates an Employment Law?

If you are a victim of employment issues, you can file a lawsuit against your employer. How and where you file a complaint or lawsuit depends on whether a federal or state law was violated. If your employer violated federal law, you must first file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If the EEOC cannot help you, you may decide to sue your employer. 

At Whitcomb Selinsky, PC, we review a company’s employment practice with the employee or independent contractor in mind. We specialize in legal action in employment-related severe issues, such as individual complaints of bias, harassment, pay and time infringements, libel, breach of non-compete agreements, and being let go without cause. Additionally, we offer services concerning negotiating collective bargaining agreements, managing labor arbitration, and unfair labor practice-related issues and proceedings. Finally, we will work with your employer’s in-house legal and Human Resources teams on your behalf for immediate resolution.
