Miller Shah Employment Lawyers Help Safeguard Employee Rights

Our Chester employment team has the experience and knowledge necessary to evaluate your situation and advise you on the most effective legal strategies. Our lawyers regularly assists employees with all sorts of employment rights violations:

Employment Discrimination

Federal and state discrimination laws make it unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees on the basis of:                

  • Disability
  • Ethnicity or race
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Gender, sex, and/or gender expression, gender identity
  • Sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Pregnancy

Employers also cannot retaliate against employees who file complaints in response to workplace discrimination or harassment. Any  worker who is subjected to this type of discrimination should consult our Chester, Connecticut employment lawyers.

Wage and Hour Laws

State wage and hour laws impose minimum standards for hours and overtime hours worked, required employee breaks, and minimum wage. Some employers attempt to evade these wage-related obligations by purposefully misclassifying non-exempt employees. For instance, an employer may attempt to classify employees paid by the hour as salaried and classify other workers as independent contractors when they should actually be considered employees. Misclassification can result in employees being wrongly denied compensation, benefits, or workplace protections.

Wrongful Termination

State and federal wrongful termination laws detail remedies for employees who have been terminated for unlawful reasons. Because the majority of employees are employed “at will,” employers can easily fire them for multiple different reasons. However, there are certain exceptions to at-will employment status. For instance, if an employer terminates an employee in violation of public policy or an implied contract, the employee may have a claim for compensation. 

Employers cannot fire employees if the termination is retaliation for whistleblowing or filing a qui tam lawsuit, is a means to avoid providing reasonable accommodations, or is otherwise in violation of employment laws. It’s also important to note that employees who have been fired due to a mass layoff or business relocation or closure and were not given proper notice may pursue benefits and back pay under the WARN Act. Additionally, wrongful termination laws prohibit employer retaliation by imposing adverse employment actions or penalties.
