The Law Office of Casey J. Wolnowski assists employees suffering from discrimination in the workplace. Types of discrimination include: race, age, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, as well as sexual harassment and hostile work environment matters.
Sexual harassment is a form of sex-based discrimination. It can take many forms including unwanted sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment, or conditioning one's job to submitting to sexual advances.
It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee for making a complaint of discrimination. Retaliation can take many forms including reduced pay, a change in schedule, and outright firing.
Laws prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals and requires employers to make reasonable accommodations if doing so would allow the employee to perform his or her job.
UNPAID WAGES AND OVERTIME
You are entitled to be paid for the hours that you work. This includes the minimum wage worker as well as the high-paid executive. You may also be entitled to overtime, even if you are a salaried employee.
RACE, RELIGION, GENDER, AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION
Both Federal and State Law prevent treating someone differently in the workplace based upon their race, national origin, religion, gender, and sexual orientation.
SMALL BUSINESS COMPLIANCE AND TRAINING
Advises businesses on best practices and changes to federal, state, and local employment laws, conducts legally-mandated trainings, updates employment manuals, and reviews employment agreements.
I believe every individual deserves equal access to the legal system and quality professional representation. When a client approaches me with their workplace experience I take the time to throughly evaluate the situation to determine if any workplace rights have been violated. I believe that an informed client is a stronger client, therefore I will take the time to ensure you are comfortable with the decision-making process as your legal matter progresses.
