Different Kinds of Employment Law Matters

There are many kinds of employment law matters that workers and employers may need to address in the greater Omaha area. Among the more common employment law matters are the following –

  • Wrongful discharge – Whistleblowers are protected when they report employers for safety violations, fraudulent activity, or illegal activity. If you were fired for being a whistleblower, you can take legal action.
  • Employment discrimination – Workplace discrimination because of age, religion, gender, race, or ethnicity as well as cases involving disability and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
  • Wage theft – If you are not paid at least minimum wage, paid for all your hours worked, forced to work before or after your shift, or work through breaks, then you could be a victim of wage theft and should have an employment law attorney review your documentation and evidence.
  • Severance pay – Employment law attorneys can review severance agreements and any disputes regarding severance pay.

“It is of the highest importance to provide equal access to the labor market. Governments should act to establish equitable employment standards and penalize racial discrimination.”
