About Our Labor Attorneys in Norwalk

As employment and labor lawyers who are interested in helping clients in Norwalk, we know the limits and boundaries employers must abide by when making employment decisions. We are on a mission to eliminate workplace misconduct.

We will look closely at the circumstances and facts of a case to determine if there is reasonable cause that demonstrates discrimination or other wrongful conduct has occurred. We take only cases that have merit because we invest a lot of time and resources for each client.

Our fees are typically based on a contingency. That contingency means that if you don’t win, we don’t get paid. You can learn more about our pricing structure by visiting our pricing page.

Norwalk Employee Rights

Employees deserve to know how their rights can be vindicated if an employer crosses the line. The nature of employment has an impact on the case. Circumstances are different for at-will and contract employees.

The specifics of a particular dispute play a part in the action that can be taken. Some jobs are governed partially or entirely by an oral or written contract, such as an agreement for a salary or a bonus agreement, for example.

An employer engaging in prohibited conduct can sometimes be sued for monetary compensation. The prohibited behavior can be nearly any unlawful adverse employment action that affects the conditions or terms of a job such as termination, suspension, benefit reduction, or a pay cut.

Disparate treatment by employers means the employee is treated differently in conditions or terms of a job like raises or promotions. A hostile work environment is created when an employer harasses an employee in a pervasive or severe manner so as to alter employment conditions and create a working environment that is abusive. Hostile work environment claims generally must based on an unlawful motive (like sexual harassment or discrimination).

Compensation may include reinstatement of a job, the value of benefits that were lost, emotional damages, attorney fees, and interest. Punitive damages that punish an employer for wrongful conduct are sometimes awarded.
