So you have been wrongfully terminated. Or you are being harassed at work. Or your former employer is suing you to enforce a non-compete. Take a breath, battered employee. This is what we do.
Most employees never expect to go to a lawyer about their job; they don’t think that they will ever be treated so unfairly that they will need to. At Hensel Law, we get it. You are under a lot of stress because of an employment law issue and our first goal is to put your mind at ease.
Discrimination and Retaliation
There are several state and federal laws that prohibit discrimination and retaliation in the workplace. If you have been discriminated against based on age, color, disability, national origin, race, religion, or sex, you may be able to do something about it. Different employees have different goals and concerns about their cases. We custom fit our approach to your case to make sure that it is in line with what you want to achieve.
Getting retaliated against at your workplace? We represent clients in retaliation cases. If your employer is retaliating because you filed a discrimination complaint, a complaint about wages, a safety complaint, or a worker’s compensation claim, we may be able to help you.
Other Protections and Services
Other laws exist that protect employees’ rights in the workplace. Among them are the Family Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Wage and Hour Act, and the National Labor Relations Act. We handle litigation matters related to all of these laws on a regular basis.
We also help people with contract issues. Whether you are being sued by a former employer over a non-compete agreement or just want us to review a severance package, Hensel Law is happy to discuss your matter.
Unemployment benefits appeals can be difficult. The appeal process and hearing is essentially a miniature lawsuit and trial. We represent clients in these hearings for a low flat rate.
Not every employee (or former employee) can afford to pay a lawyer’s hourly rate out of pocket. We understand this and offer various different types of representation to clients, including contingency representation, where the client pays nothing until there is recovery in his or her matter. In some cases, we advance the costs of litigation so that our clients have to pre-pay nothing whatsoever to bring their case to court.
In short, we don’t think any employee should be denied access to the court just because they cannot afford to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket. If you have a case, we will try to work with you on the fee.
