At the law office of Taylor & Associates, Ltd., we’ve been helping workers resolve their labor and employment-related problems for 21 years. We provide knowledgeable legal representation for the following kinds of employment law problems:

Whistleblower Cases

At Taylor & Associates, we help workers who are or who may suffer retaliatory action from employers because they have reported on employer violations of laws or ethical practices that led to the government being defrauded of money or sold goods that were substandard. We handle environmental whistleblower cases.

Wrongful Termination

Although most employment in the U.S. is “at will” and either the employee or the employer can end employment without giving cause, there are reasons for termination that are legally wrong and can provide the basis for a lawsuit, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Violation of an implied contract
  • To prevent the employee from receiving a benefit they have earned
  • Labor organizing or unionizing
  • Refusal to violate public policies (such as commit perjury) or for engaging in an action that is permitted (serving jury duty)

If you think you have been wrongfully terminated, you may be able to bring a wrongful termination lawsuit to recover back pay, front pay, emotional distress, attorney’s fees and possible reinstatement of employment.

Harassment

Sexual harassment is a form of sexual discrimination and is covered under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Harassment is behavior that interferes with the worker’s ability to perform their job by creating an intimidating or offensive work environment. The worker can be a man or a woman; the harasser can be an employer, manager, coworker, even a non-employee. Talk to an attorney at Taylor & Associates, Ltd., if you believe you have been the victim of sexual harassment on the job.
