What is Employment Law?

Employment law focuses on the obligations and responsibilities between an employer and employee relationship. This encompasses several different factors at work, such as wages, hourly employment, etc.

We Handle a Variety of Employment Law Cases

Our experienced team of labor lawyers can help you with all types of employment cases including:

  • Wrongful Termination – Wrongful termination can occur when an employee is fired for illegal reasons. No employee can be let go based on their gender, race, religion, disability, or other protected trait. If there are specific reasons listed in an employee’s contract for why they can or cannot be let go, violation of the terms of the contract are also grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit.  Each law has specific statutes in place that prohibit wrongful termination at work. In order to determine your state’s wrongful termination laws, contact our employment law attorneys immediately.
  • Workplace Retaliation – Retaliation occurs when an employer tries to get back at their employee for taking certain action. Examples of retaliation include disciplinary action, shift reassignments, demotions, firing, pay reduction, or any other negative action that an employer takes without legal justification for doing so.
  • Workplace Harassment – This is considered a form of discrimination where the employer’s inappropriate behavior, often sexual behavior, prevents the employee from doing their job and feeling comfortable while doing it. Workplace harassment is very common in Las Vegas, especially in hotels and casinos where employees deal with visitors and tourists every day. An experienced workplace harassment Las Vegas employer will explain to you what your rights are, and how your harassment case needs to be handled. If you are a victim of sexual harassment at work, whether it was by your employer or by a third-party, contact our Las Vegas employment attorneys today.
  • Workplace Discrimination – Every employee deserves to be treated fairly in the workplace, and despite the presence of numerous laws that help protect workers against discriminatory practices, workplace discrimination still persists. If an employer takes negative action against an employee because of their disability, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation or gender, or maternity, then this is illegal discrimination in the workplace.
  • Wage and Hour Disputes – Some employers refuse to give their staff proper compensation for the hours or overtime work they’ve put in. Companies also try to illegally get more work out of their employees by not giving them the minimum amount of time off that they are owed. These are all violations of the labor law and can be fought with legal action.
  • Contract Violations & Contractor Classification Issues – If an employer has misclassified an employee as a contractor to avoid giving them the proper benefits that they would get as a full-time employee, this is a violation of employment law and could be justification for filing a lawsuit. This is filed under a breach-of-contract claim against the employer. In order to prove a breach of contract, the employee would have to show that there was a valid contract between an employee and an employer, and the employer failed to act according to the contract. Contract disputes are one of the most common employment claims in Las Vegas. If you have been involved in an employment contract dispute with your employer, contact our attorneys today.
  • Whistleblower Protection – An employer cannot punish an employee who has come forward to expose the wrongdoings that are occurring within their company. The law offers whistleblower protections for employees who legally file a complaint against their employer.
  • Workers compensation – Our workers compensation attorneys will make sure that you receive maximum compensation for any injuries you have suffered while on the job. Contact us today to see how we can help you receive compensation for your injuries.

Do I Need a Nevada Attorney?

What type of compensation could I receive for my employment law claim in Nevada?

  • Physical damage: examples of physical damage include injuries to personal property such as the employee’s house or their car.
  • Medical costs: this involves the medical bills, along with the treatment necessary to treat past workplace misconduct that has resulted in injuries, along with any future treatments the employee needs.
  • Pain and suffering: this type of compensation refers to the emotional trauma the employer has suffered at the workplace. Examples of emotional trauma include anxiety, PTSD, etc.
  • Loss of companionship: this is a claim brought in a wrongful death action if the employee has died while on the job.
  • Punitive damages: if the employer has engaged in any type of malicious behavior, then the Nevada court will most likely award punitive damages to the employee.

What should I do if I have been mistreated at work?
