Labor and Employment Law Cases an Employment Lawyer Can Help With

Workplace discrimination and harassment

At our Memphis law firm, we believe that every individual deserves fair and equitable employment opportunities, pay, and working conditions – no one should have to work in a hostile work environment. 

Discrimination refers to any action that treats an employee or group of employees differently because of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. 

Harassment, on the other hand, involves some type of unwelcome behavior directed towards an employee or group of employees, which can be physical, verbal, or sexual in nature. 

If you have been subjected to discrimination or harassment based on these characteristics, our experienced attorneys are here to help.

Wrongful termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires or lays off an employee for an illegal reason. 

Examples include retaliatory actions following an employee’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint, termination for taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), or firing an employee for refusing to engage in unethical practices. 

If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, our attorneys can help evaluate your case and pursue appropriate legal action.

Disputes over pay

Our firm is dedicated to helping employees get the compensation they deserve. Whether you have unpaid wages – including overtime – or if you have experienced other income-related violations, such as being paid less than minimum wage or having your pay docked unfairly, we will advocate on your behalf. 

WH Law represents individuals and groups of employees, ensuring that your employers are held accountable for paying you in full and on time.

Employment document review and alternatives

If you are facing issues related to employment documents, our attorneys can review these documents to ensure that you understand their terms and consequences.

Separation agreements

We can review a separation or severance agreement from your employer to ensure you understand its terms and their consequences, make certain your rights are protected, and work to identify and smartly negotiate more beneficial terms for you.

Pre-termination issues

For pre-termination issues, we can provide guidance and counsel to employees whose jobs may be in jeopardy or who are considering a separation from their current employment. We work to achieve the most favorable outcomes through behind-the-scenes counseling or direct negotiation with their employers.

Public employment/civil service

In cases involving public employment or civil service, our experienced attorneys are well-equipped to handle a wide range of employment issues. We are familiar with the complex administrative systems and procedural rules involved in representing clients employed in the public sector of Memphis. 

Whether you are facing internal investigations, disciplinary hearings, or terminations, we can provide expert legal representation to protect your rights.

Alternative dispute resolution

In situations where employment law matters may not be best suited for a lawsuit, we also offer alternative dispute resolution services. Mediation and arbitration can provide effective ways to resolve employment and labor disputes outside of the courtroom. 

Our attorneys are experienced in effective dispute resolution methods and will guide you through the process to achieve a fair and satisfactory resolution.

Negotiating collective bargaining agreements

CBAs outline the terms and conditions of employment, covering areas such as wage rates, benefits, working hours, and safety standards. Negotiating these agreements can involve complex issues, and having an experienced attorney on your side is essential for protecting your interests and securing the best possible deal.
