Types of Employment Litigation The Jeffcoat Firm Handles
The Jeffcoat Firm handles a wide range of employment litigation issues, including:
- Discrimination litigation. Accusations of employment discrimination are serious allegations that need to be handled correctly from the beginning. Discrimination claims can happen in the contexts of hiring, management of existing employees, and in firing them. These claims may involve the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission, and other state and federal agencies. When you’re dealing with a discrimination claim, it’s important to have an experienced employment litigation lawyer on your side during the process.
- Employment contract litigation. Employees are the foundation of any business, and employment contracts can govern every aspect of a relationship between the business and employee. Compensation, leave, benefits, non-competition agreements, and many other topics may be covered in an employment agreement. State and federal law govern these agreements. If you’re involved in an employment contract dispute, it’s critical to have knowledgeable and experienced legal representation on your side during any litigation.
- Workplace retaliation and harassment. Retaliation and harassment charges are some of the most common and most serious employment law issues that employers and employees may face. These claims can have serious consequences for a business and its employees. If you’re dealing with retaliation or harassment claims, make sure that you get legal help as soon as you can.
- Wage and benefit issues. Employee compensation and benefits are a complex area of law. Failure to pay overtime, failure to honor benefits agreements, broken promises, and other wage and benefit problems may arise in the employer-employee context. At The Jeffcoat Firm, we can help you understand the issue you’re facing and advise you on the next steps you should take.
- Wrongful termination. Employees in most situations may be terminated at-will, meaning that employers may dismiss the employee for many different reasons or no reason at all. However, there are still limits on when and why an employer may terminate the relationship. When the termination happens in violation of the law, when it is done in violation of employment contracts, or when it is done as a form of harassment, it may be wrongful termination.
The Jeffcoat Firm handles these and other employment litigation matters. If you have questions about your situation, contact us today for a free consultation.
