Types of Labor & Employment Law Claims
RK Legal represents employees with a wide range of employment law claims, including but not limited to:
- Wrongful Termination: If you believe you were fired or otherwise punished for an unlawful reason, such as your race, gender, religion, complaining about workplace harassment, or for reporting illegal actions, you may have a valid claim against your employer for wrongful termination or retaliation. There are specific criteria that must be met in order to prevail on these types of claims. Our attorneys will review your case and communicate the strength of your case with you.
- Workplace Discrimination & Harassment: You have a right to work in an environment that is free of workplace discrimination and harassment. Employers cannot discriminate against and/or harass you based on any protected class, such as your age, race, color, creed, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, marital status, genetic information, citizenship status, military/veteran status, political affiliation and more. At RK Legal, we will help protect your lawful rights.
- Wage & Hour Claims: Wage and hour violations encompass a wide range of illegal actions on the part of the employer, including paying workers less than the minimum wage, not providing meal and rest breaks (e.g. untimely, interrupted, shortened and/or missed meal and rest breaks), not paying overtime, and misclassifying workers as salaried employees or independent contractors. At RK Legal, we help victimized current and former employees recover the compensation to which they are entitled to on an individual, PAGA, and class-action basis.
- Workplace Retaliation: If you believe your employer has penalized you for engaging in a legally protected activity, such as trying to enforce your employment rights, and/or making a complaint, the employer may be held liable for retaliation. It can be as obvious as the employer providing a negative performance review, or even demoting you, shortly after you filed a complaint of harassment, discrimination, or unpaid wages.
In addition, RK Legal handles workers’ compensation claims and works with employees who have been discriminated against following a workplace accident, either because their injuries have left them with a disability or because they filed a claim against their employer’s insurance provider. Our team of attorneys can help you address both labor law and workers’ compensation law issues that arise simultaneously.
If you believe that your rights have been violated by an employer, potential employer, hiring manager, or another party, regardless of if the issue is listed above, get in touch with us today and we’d be more than happy to sit down with you and discuss your situation and advise you of the proper legal options.
