In the event of a discrepancy in your workplace, you’ll need a Bucks County labor attorney to assist you in arguing your case against your employer, employee or coworker. Though they may seem straightforward, the United States labor laws can actually be very tricky. Therefore, it’s essential to have a skilled, knowledgeable lawyer on your side. With more than 30 years of legal experience, Mr. Gary P. Heslin is a highly qualified choice for your defense.
We’ll Handle Your Workplace Dispute Case The Right Way
No matter what the cause of your workplace dispute, the Heslin Law Firm will take a personalized approach to handling your case. Over the years, our labor lawyer in Bucks County has dealt with all of the following types of workplace disputes:
- Discrimination: In the United States, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against job applicants and workers based on their race, gender, religion, disability, age, veteran status or national origin. If you feel you’ve been discriminated against by your employer, the Heslin Law Firm will help you fight back.
- Harassment: Harassment in the workplace can include offensive items and pictures as well as insulting comments made by your employer or a coworker. Like discrimination, employee harassment is based on a person’s membership in a certain class (race, gender, etc.). Harassment can result in a very hostile work environment, so it’s important to report it and make a case against the offender when it occurs.
- Severance Agreements: Severance agreements are sometimes proposed when an employee is laid off or discharged. If you’ve been presented with a severance agreement from your employer, we can help you review it to ensure you understand it and are getting a fair deal. If necessary, we can also help you negotiate with your employer regarding the agreement.
- Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA): The FLSA sets rules for the payment of a minimum wage as well as overtime to eligible employees who work more than 40 hours in a work week. If you are concerned you haven’t been paid fairly for your labor, we encourage you to contact us.
- Employment Contracts: Though most do not, some employers require you to sign a contract when taking a job. Usually, these contracts include the terms of employment, your wage and the length of the contract. Mr. Heslin will sit down with you to look through the contract and explain the details. If you are unsatisfied with some aspect of the contract, he will do his best to negotiate.
If your workplace dispute doesn’t fall into one of these categories, not to worry – we’re experts regarding virtually every type of issue that can take place on the job.
