Worker Representation

Protecting the Rights of Workers

Jobs are important and employers do not always follow the employment laws. Federal and state laws grant certain rights to workers and create consequences for employers who violate those rights. When that happens, the experienced employment lawyers at Hurley Gunsher, Ltd. can help you understand your rights and recommend solutions related to:

  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Minimum wage
  • Overtime
  • Medical leave
  • Employment agreements
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Severance
  • Unsafe conditions

Holding Employers Accountable

Employers treat certain workers differently, whether it is unfair hiring, scheduling, promotion, pay raises, or job assignments. Unfortunately, not all decisions in the workplace are made for the right reasons, including decisions based on:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • National Origin

Defending Your Right to Work

Non-compete agreements have become increasingly common for workers and they sometimes put unfair restrictions on your ability to find another job. Hurley Gunsher, Ltd. can advise you on how your non-compete agreement can impact you, before or after you have signed the agreement.

Negotiating Separation Agreements and Severances

When an employment relationship ends, many employers ask their employees to sign separation agreements in exchange for severance pay. Separation agreements may have hidden consequences. Our attorneys can help you understand the agreement and help you negotiate more favorable terms, often times including more severance pay.
