Areas of Law Description
- Employment Harassment and Discrimination
The right to work is a fundamental right, safeguarded by numerous federal and state laws. Because you have a right to work, employers cannot refuse to hire you based on your race, gender, age or a number of other factors. If you believe or suspect you have encountered discrimination in the workplace, either as an employee or as a job-hunter, contact Bononi Law Group, LLP.
- Wrongful Termination/Discharge
The term "wrongful termination" means that an employer has fired or laid off an employee for illegal reasons in the eyes of the law. Illegal reasons for termination include: firing in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination laws; firing as a form of sexual harassment; firing in violation of oral and written employment agreements; firing in violation of labor laws, including collective bargaining laws; and fired in retaliation for the employee's having filed a complaint or claim against the employer.
- Family Medical Leave Act claims
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year. It also requires that group health benefits be maintained during the leave. The FMLA helps employees balance their work and family responsibilities by allowing reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons.

In the 1920s, the so-called science of Eugenics encouraged discrimination based on a person's heredity. At the time, this was merely racism disguising itself as science. But thanks to modern genetic medicine, today we know that more than just physical appearance is passed from one generation to another-a propensity for developing certain diseases also appears to be hereditary. And, as with the Eugenics of yesteryear, discrimination based on heredity is once again a possibility.Read Article
