It is a difficult situation to be in when things just are not going well at work or you have been terminated for unjust reasons. Your job is your livelihood. You depend on it to support yourself and possibly even your family. There may be few people you feel that you can talk to about the situation and they may not be able to give you the information you need to make your situation better. A Brooklyn employment law attorney will listen to the facts of your situation and give you sound legal advice on what your options are.

Unpaid Overtime

Overtime laws are complex even though they might appear to be rather straightforward. Many employers fail to pay overtime that workers are entitled to by law. Sometimes failing to pay overtime may be intentional. Regardless, you are entitled to overtime pay if you earned it. If you believe that you have worked and not been paid overtime when it was due, our Brooklyn employment law attorney may be able to recover that compensation for you.

Wrongful Termination

Even though many employment situations are at-will, the law says that if you are fired for a particular reason, that reason must be lawful and not contrary to public policy. There are many protections that the law allows for and they are often complicated and depend on the particular facts and circumstances of a termination and what led up to it. If you believe that you have been wrongfully terminated, contact our Brooklyn employment law attorney for an evaluation of your situation and the options that may be available to you.

Discrimination

State and Federal laws provide protections for certain classes of individuals pertaining to discrimination in an employment setting. Some instances of discrimination may be quite clear while others may be a product of several factors. If you feel that you have been discriminated against in hiring, while you were employed, or your termination was a result of discrimination, call our employment law attorney today for a case evaluation.
