Protecting Your Workplace Rights

It is illegal for a company or business to discriminate based on race, gender, orientation, nationality, age, disability or family status. Workers also have a right to minimum wage and overtime. All U.S. workers are protected by state and federal laws that shield them from any retaliation by an employer should they file a complaint.

At Bronnberg & Henriquez PC, our skilled employment law attorneys are tireless advocates for the working men and women and the teachers of this country. We can help you. 

EMPLOYMENT LAW

We Will Not Be Intimidated

If you are not a salaried employee, you are eligible for overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

If you believe that your employer should be paying you overtime, we can help you pursue an action against the company, including filing a claim under the FLSA.

We Represent Teachers At 3020-a Hearings And In Discrimination Complaints

Teachers may experience discrimination, especially based upon age. For example, a school or district may replace tenured teachers with younger teachers. We understand how hard our teachers work to educate and prepare our children. We work diligently to advocate for teachers’ rights with the district and the National Labor Relations Board.

Unfortunately, some employers may lay off or terminate an employee for discriminatory reasons but claim that it was for no reason at all. Often that employee has endured on-the-job harassment. You have the right to bring a wrongful termination charge against your employer if you have sufficient evidence. You may also bring charges against your employer if:
