What Is Employment Law?

Employment law is the branch of law that deals with matters relating to employment and the rights of employees. It encompasses a wide range of legal issues, including workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, pay disputes, and occupational safety. In employment law cases, attorneys help employees understand and assert their rights under applicable employment laws.

When it comes to fighting for your rights in the workplace, hiring a top-notch employment attorney is crucial. At WH Law, we understand the importance of being a champion for the working man and woman. With our down-to-earth approach and emphasis on our Southern hospitality, we stand out from the rest by challenging authority and rooting for the American worker.

One of the reasons why it’s essential to have an employment attorney by your side is the potential for significant financial compensation. In cases of wrongful dismissal, you may be entitled to double damages plus attorney fees. Our skilled lawyers have successfully helped numerous workers recover the money they rightfully deserved, including:

  • Plant and factory workers who were not paid for set-up time
  • Managers who worked overtime but were denied overtime pay
  • Workers who were paid a day rate regardless of the number of hours worked
  • Healthcare workers who were not receiving overtime pay
  • Restaurant workers who were paid less than minimum wage without a tip credit

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired in violation of employment laws or regulations. It could involve being fired due to discrimination, retaliation for reporting illegal or unethical behavior, or simply because an employer wants to get rid of an employee for unfair reasons. If you believe you were unjustly fired, our team of Arkansas employment lawyers is here to help you navigate the complex regulations set by the state government and hold your former employer accountable for their actions.

Discrimination

Discrimination is a serious employment law issue that affects many hard-working individuals in the workplace. At WH Law, we believe in equal employment opportunity for all, and we won’t stand idly by while hard-working individuals are treated unfairly based on factors like age, race, gender, or other protected characteristics.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is a serious issue that affects many employees in the workplace. It can include unwanted touching, suggestive comments, or the creation of a hostile work environment. No employee should have to endure this type of behavior. Our dedicated employment law attorneys can advocate on your behalf, no matter what form of harassment you endured.

Wage Disputes

Pay disputes are a common issue in the workplace that can have significant financial implications for hard-working individuals. Whether it’s disputes over unpaid wages, incorrect wage calculations, or hour issues, our team of Arkansas employment lawyers is here to be your champion and fight for your rights.

Retaliation

Retaliation can show up in many forms. It might show up as a demotion, your role is changed an you are given less to do, or your salary, commission, or bonuses are reduced. You could also be passed over for a promotion or raise, especially if this occurs after you’ve engaged in protected activities.

Occupational Safety

Regarding workplace safety, there are a variety of violations that can occur. From inadequate safety protocols to a lack of proper training, these violations can put hard-working individuals at risk. At WH Law, we believe in being a champion for the working man and woman, and that includes advocating for their safety on the job. We challenge authority and hold companies accountable for their negligence when it comes to workplace safety.
