Attorneys Asserting Employees’ Rights
Have you been discriminated against or mistreated in the workplace? Do you disagree with the terms of a severance agreement or non-compete agreement that has been presented to you? Are you concerned that you are not being paid the overtime pay that is owed to you? We can help.
At Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C., our experienced employment law attorney is skilled at counseling clients, negotiating with employers and, when necessary, taking employment disputes to trial. Contact our Denver law office to schedule a free initial consultation about any of the following issues:
Employment discrimination: Under Colorado and federal law it is illegal to discriminate against employees on the basis of their race and ethnicity, gender, age, disability status and pregnancy status. We can help you enforce your right to fair treatment the workplace.
Severance negotiations: If you’re being forced to leave a company where you put in significant efforts as an executive or manager, you owe it to yourself to ensure that you have skilled employment law counsel by your side during severance negotiations.
Wrongful termination: While employers are generally allowed to fire or lay off employees at will, there are several reasons — in addition to employment discrimination — why a termination may be against the law. If your termination violates an employment contract activity or is for some other reason illegal, we can help.
Non-compete agreements: While many employees are required to sign non-compete agreements before accepting certain jobs, these agreements are not always enforceable under Colorado law. If you have signed a non-compete agreement, we can advise you as to its likely consequences.
Overtime violations: Under federal law, certain employees must be paid overtime if they work more than 40 hours per week. You do not become exempt from overtime rights simply by signing an agreement or by accepting a salaried position. If you have a legal right to overtime, we will discuss what we can do to enforce that right.
If you have any questions or concerns about your labor rights as an employee, don’t hesitate to contact the experienced employment law attorney at Lonn Heymann Law Firm, P.C.. Your initial consultation is free.
