Our firm has extensive experience representing both businesses and individuals in a variety of employment law matters. No matter which side of the case you are on, we can provideº comprehensive representation. Our experience on both sides of the fence is a significant asset to our clients: We know what to expect from the other side, and know how to effectively counter their moves at every step.
We have successfully represented our clients in a wide range of employment matters, including:
Employment discrimination, such as gender, race, disability, age, pregnancy, and ethnicity – Do you have reason to believe that you were treated differently or fired from a job as a result of discrimination? Employers who make decisions based on a person’s gender, race, age, ethnicity, or other protected factor under the law might be held accountable for discriminatory practices. If you believe that this applies to your situation, it is advisable to speak with a skilled employment attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your legal options.
Workplace harassment and retaliation, including claims of sexual harassment and hostile workplace – There are many factors that can contribute to an uncomfortable and hostile work environment. If you are uncomfortable at work or dealing with a situation that prevents you from doing your job to the best of your ability, contact an employment attorney to discuss your rights.
Wrongful termination – Were you terminated from a job without reason or warning? Did your employer let you go based on a reason that violates your rights and the law? Talk to an employment attorney about your situation to determine your rights.
Whistleblower claims – As an individual employee, a whistleblower claim can be damaging to your career and can result in unfair treatment by those around you. If you are a business dealing with a whistleblower concern, it is also important to understand your legal rights. Regardless of the situation, if you are facing a possible whistleblower case, it is advisable to consult with an employment law attorney to determine your rights and next steps.
Wage and hour/overtime disputes – It can be difficult to move forward from a wage dispute when you are on either side of the argument and find yourself at an impasse. If you have reason to believe that you have not received correct payment, or are missing out on the overtime payment that you are entitled to, speak with an employment attorney today. Likewise, if you are dealing with an employee who is claiming wages and overtime that they did not earn or at a rate that was not agreed upon, it is also advisable to consult with an employment lawyer to determine how to proceed.
Employment contract drafting and review – An employment contract can be complicated to those who are less familiar with the legal terms of employment law. For this reason, it is helpful to speak with an employment lawyer who can review the details of your contract before you proceed with signing or sending it to a new employee.
Non-compete agreements and trade secrets – Before signing or creating a contract that includes language about non-competition or sharing trade secrets, consult with an employment attorney who can review the language and determine the strength of the contract.
Having an experienced and knowledgeable Tulsa Employment Lawyer on your side can be the difference between obtaining a favorable or unfavorable outcome in your case. If you find yourself on either side of these matters, call Wandres Law today for a consultation where we will share our professional opinion of your legal situation and discuss next step options if you indeed want to move forward.
