Connecticut Labor & Employment Lawyers

Home/Connecticut Labor & Employment Lawyers

Employment law is an essential aspect of business operations, governing the relationship between employers and employees to ensure fairness, safety and compliance within the workplace. Understanding and adhering to employment law helps employers avoid costly legal disputes and fosters a positive work environment. Miller Shah LLP is experienced in both sides of labor and employment law, offering guidance to businesses navigating the complexities of these regulations and assisting employees who have been unlawfully misclassified or mistreated. Whether you are an employer seeking to maintain compliance and minimize risk or a worker seeking to vindicate your rights, the Connecticut labor & employment lawyers at Miller Shah can assist.

Importance of Employment Law

Employment law encompasses a wide range of regulations and statutes that dictate how employers treat their workers. These laws are designed to ensure fair treatment, prevent discrimination, and protect employees from unjust practices. Employers must be well-versed in employment law to create a safe and equitable workplace, avoid legal pitfalls, and maintain their business reputation. Employees should likewise be familiar with employment law to recognize violations in the workplace and stand up for themselves and their colleagues.

Categories of Employment Law

Discrimination and Harassment

Employment law prohibits discrimination based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age and disability. Harassment, including sexual harassment, is also illegal and can create a hostile work environment. Miller Shah both assists employers in implementing policies and procedures to prevent discrimination and harassment and represents clients who have suffered such foul play in legal proceedings. Our team helps create inclusive workplaces where all employees can thrive.

Wage and Hour Laws

Compliance with wage and hour laws is vital to avoid expensive litigation and penalties. These laws govern minimum wage, overtime pay and employee classification. Miller Shah LLP helps businesses understand their obligations under wage and hour laws and defends clients facing wage and hour claims. By ensuring adherence to these regulations, employers can protect their businesses from potential lawsuits, and employees can be sure they receive fair compensation for their labor.

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired for unlawful reasons, such as retaliation or discrimination. Terminating an employee for an unlawful reason or in violation of employment contracts can lead to significant legal challenges with financial and reputational consequences. Miller Shah advises employers on best practices for terminating employees, drafts employment contracts with clear termination clauses, and represents clients in wrongful termination disputes. Our goal is to protect our clients’ interests while maintaining fair employment practices.
