Employment Law Issues We Handle

At The Moran Law Group, we handle the following workplace issues:

  • Workplace injuries. This includes workers’ compensation claims and appeals or third-party claims against those who may be liable for your temporary or permanent disability.
  • Discrimination. Discriminatory actions based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, gender, pregnancy, age, or disability are a violation of your civil rights.
  • Wrongful termination. You cannot be fired for an unlawful reason, such as based on discrimination, refusing to participate in unethical or illegal practices, whistleblowing, or exercising your medical leave rights.
  • Sexual harassment and hostile work environment. This includes verbal, physical, and other forms of unwelcome sexually-related conduct from unwanted sexual advances to offensive comments, jokes, or visual material by co-workers, managers, and executives.
  • Wage and hour claims. These include failure to pay minimum wage, earned overtime, providing employees with legally-mandated rest and meal breaks, misclassifying employees to avoid proper pay, and more.
  • Equal pay. Under the Equal Pay Act, equal pay for equal work is protected for all employees, regardless of their gender.
  • Retaliation. Employers cannot retaliate against employees who exercise their legal rights within the workplace.
  • Whistleblower claims. We can help you file well-documented claims of unethical or unlawful activity on the part of your employer.
  • Employment agreements/contracts. We can assist in drafting, reviewing, and litigating disputes related to these agreements.
  • Severance agreements. We can negotiate and review these agreements as well as litigate disputes.
  • Family and Medical Leave Act violations. Certain employees are entitled to take unpaid leave for medical reasons related to themselves or family members.
