What rights do I have while at work?
Disputes in the workplace can arise over a variety of issues. When you are at work, you deserve to be treated with respect and equality. While at work you are entitled to basic comforts such as regular breaks and a workplace free of unresolved difficulties. But sometimes employers miss the mark and violate their employees’ rights. Employment law issues often involve:
- Mileage reimbursement law
- Vacation laws
- Rest and meal breaks
- Sick leave laws - Sick Leave Act
- Lunch break laws
- Wrongful termination
- Unemployment rights
- Workplace harassment
- Wage and overtime violations
Employment law issues can be scary, because you may fear retaliation from your employer. At the Law Office of Scott A. Schwartz we are proficient in careful scrutiny of the facts of your case, and we understand your fears. You are entitled to meal and rest breaks. When your employer deprives you of those legally required breaks, we take a hard-line approach to getting you the compensation you deserve.
Your employer is also required to provide a workplace that is free of harassment. Harassment can take the form of unwanted sexual advances, or unfair treatment that goes unpunished. Our office is skilled in forceful litigation in these areas. We seek to reach a resolution of your matter that is fair and one where equality is upheld.
