Let Us Help You With Your Employment Case

The Craighead Law Firm was founded to help employees who have been wronged by their employers such as when they have been wrongfully terminated. Whether you worked for a small company or a large Fortune 500 company, we want to provide you legal help for your employment lawsuit. Be fair to yourself: employers have all the resources in the world including human resource departments and employment lawyers, whereas employees often times have no one on their side but themselves yet are confronted with complicated statutes like Title VII, FMLA, FLSA, and ADA. Don't leave yourself vulnerable without an employment lawyer on your side. You deserve an employment lawyer who will be on your side and fighting for you. We can help you. We handle all types of employment lawsuits including race and disability (ADA) discrimination, retaliation, failure to accommodate, FLSA (unpaid overtime and minimum wage), FMLA (medical leave), workers' compensation, and sexual harassment.

Discrimination

Employees are protected against certain forms of discrimination under both federal and state laws. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees for any of the following reasons: race, sex, age, disability, national origin, religion, and pregnancy. For example, employers may not wrongfully terminate, demote, or otherwise discriminate against an employee on the basis of race or sex.

Retaliation

Employees are protected against certain forms of retaliation under both federal and state laws. In general, an employer may not retaliate against an employee because he filed a charge of discrimination, partipated in an investigation, or opposed a discriminatory practice. For example, an employer may not retaliate against an employee because the employee complained that he or someone else was being subjected to racist comments or not given a proper accommodation for a disability.

Medical Leave (FMLA Leave)

Under the Family & Medical Leave Act (commonly referred to as "FMLA"), employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks of FMLA leave for a serious health condition, the birth of a child, caring for certain family members, and other scenarios. Often times, employers do not want to honor their FMLA obligations and instead opt to wrongfully terminate employees or pressure them into not exercising their legal right to medical leave under the FMLA.

Disability (ADA)

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (commonly referred to as "ADA"), employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of disability and are obligated to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees. A reasonable accommodation is typically a modification to the work environment. An accommodation can take many forms, but an example would be where an employee needs a special chair to accommodate a debilitating back injury or requires slightly larger doors to gain access to their workspace.

Overtime and Minimum Wage (FLSA)

Federal and state law mandates that employers pay their employees a minimum wage and overtime for hours worked over 40 hours a week. There are exceptions to overtime rules, but often times employers try to misuse the exceptions or trick employees into believing an exception applies when in fact the employee is entitled to overtime pay. These types of claims commonly arise under the Fair Labor Standards Act (commonly referred to as "FLSA") and can be very complicated for a layperson to figure out. You should let us help you with your overtime and minimum wage claims. Learn more about your FLSA and overtiem rights by clicking here.

Workers' Compensation Retaliation and Discrimination

Employers are prohibited under state law from retaliating or discriminating against employees for filing workers' compensation claims or in anticipation of a employee filing a workers' compensation claim. Some employers create an environment of fear around workplace injuries in an effort to suppress the filing of workers' compensation claims. Other employers automatically believe their employees are faking their injuries, trying to milk the system, or otherwise trying to avoid working by filing a workers' compensation claim.

Sexual Harassment

Employers are prohibited from harassing employees based on their sex. Sexual harassment can include unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature, though it also includes simple offensive remarks about a person's sex such as using dergoatory language towards women. And contrary to popular belief, both the victim and harasser can be a woman or a man and the victim and harasser can be the same sex. Learn more about sexual harassment claims by clicking here.
