Your Employment Attorney

There are both state and federal laws in place to protect those who have been discriminated against or treated unfairly in the workplace. Because employment-related claims must adhere to strict deadlines, it’s important that you seek counsel early in the process. We will help to ensure that you adhere to these deadlines, as well as all rules and regulations. The RAWLaw team will thoroughly evaluate your case and provide you with a straightforward legal opinion and a plan to help you through the litigation process if litigation is necessary.

Types of Employment Litigation

We provide legal representation for employment litigation claims, including claims for wages, penalties and attorney fees, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and breach of contract.

  • Claims for wages: A wage claim allows you to seek wages that your employer failed to pay. This can include overtime pay and bonuses to travel time and business expenses.
  • Penalties and attorney fees: Although it is not always the case, there are times when the guilty party is required to pay the penalties and attorney fees for the winning claimant.
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements: A non-competition agreement prevents former employees from legally competing against a former employer for a certain amount of time. A non-solicitation agreement, on the other hand, bars employees from soliciting the clients of their former employers.
  • Breach of contract: A breach of contract occurs when either employers or employees fail to perform the duties that were specified in their contracts.
