Areas of Law Description
Our practice includes:
- Discrimination, Harassment, and Civil Rights
Everyone deserves a workplace free from harassment and discrimination. Discrimination laws such as the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, protect you from “adverse employment actions” based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information. An adverse employment action could be one or more of many things, including but not limited to unfair reviews, suspensions, demotions, refusals to promote, refusals to hire, and many other instances of conduct that amount to you being treated differently than your co-workers.
- Wage and Hour Disputes
Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), you are owed at least a minimum wage for every hour you work and, depending on the circumstances; you may also be entitled to compensation for working overtime. If you think you haven’t been compensated for all the time you’ve worked, talk to an experienced attorney at The Erlich Law Office.
- Civil Litigation and Appeals
We regularly handle civil litigation matters in both state and federal courts, including discovery, motions practice, depositions, and trial preparation. Our lawyers have handled diverse matters, including breach of contract, civil rights claims, and collective action claims.
