Protecting Your Workplace Rights
Aside from family, a job is among the most important aspects of many people's lives. Not only do we spend a significant percentage of our time at work, our jobs help define who we are and how we feel about ourselves.
For these reasons, it is important for individuals to protect their rights in the workplace. Federal laws protect employees against wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment and other illegal actions taken by employers.
At the law office of Adam M. Porter in Birmingham, Alabama, I am passionate about protecting the rights of workers who have endured employment-related infractions. I have more than 25 years of experience helping employees use Alabama and federal employment law to stand up for their rights when the employment relationship is abused.
An Alabama Wrongful Termination Lawyer Who Also Handles Discrimination, Sexual Harassment And More
I am sensitive to the legal, economic and emotional dynamics that arise when the employment relationship is abused. I utilize tact and diplomacy in pursuing a favorable resolution of your case.
I have the resources and knowledge to enforce the rights of individuals and employee groups in the following areas:
- Harassment and creating a hostile work environment
- Hiring and workplace discrimination based on age, race, nationality, religion, gender or disability
- Hostile action against pregnant women or employees taking FMLA family leave
- Defamation stemming from an employer's false statements or accusations
- Violation of rights guaranteed by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Violation of rights guaranteed by the Americans with Disabilities Act
- Wage and hour disputes
- Victims of retaliation or wrongful discharge for refusing to commit illegal acts
The law in these areas is complicated and full of nuances. If you feel you are a victim of workplace discrimination or harassment, it is important to contact a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible. I can advise you of the proper steps to take and help you recover lost wages and other damages. We may also be able to help you retain your current job.
