Employment Practice

McKnight, Canzano, Smith, Radtke & Brault represents workers with claims against their employers, including claims for sexual harassment, gender, race, religion and disability discrimination, failure to accommodate a disability, other violations of statutory law; ERISA (discrimination relating to fringe benefits and wrongful denial of benefits), Family and Medical Leave Act, state and federal whistleblower protection laws (e.g. Sarbanes-Oxley Act), the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and many others.

  • My supervisor continually asks me on dates. Is this sexual harassment?
  • Every promotional opportunity in my company seems to be given to less qualified workers of a different race, gender or national origin, can I sue for discrimination?
  • I took maternity leave and the company fired me when I tried to return to work. Can they do that?
  • I recently came back from military service and my employer will not take me back. Don’t I have a right to my job under USERRA?
  • Can I be fired for being a medical marijuana user?
  • I reported my employer to a law enforcement agency because it was violating the law and I was fired. Am I a whistleblower?
  • My child is very sick and requires very expensive medicine and treatment. My company told me to either take a pay cut or decline health care benefits for my family because their self-insured health care costs are too high. Is that legal?
  • I was offered a severance package and told my job was eliminated as part of a workforce reduction, but I found out that a much younger, less qualified worker replaced me. Isn’t age discrimination illegal?
  • I know I am an at-will employee, but can I be fired because my religion requires me to attend services during a scheduled shift?
  • Is there still such a thing as wrongful discharge or wrongful termination if I am an “at will” employee?
  • I have a physical condition that prevents me from doing some things, but it does not prevent me from doing my job if I can sit and stand when necessary. Does my employer have to give me a chair?
  • Is it legal for my employer to pay me substantially less than my male co-workers for doing the same work?
  • I have to take time off related to my husband’s military deployment. Can I be terminated or penalized for taking that time off?
