Bergen County Employment Lawyers
Employment Law Attorneys in Englewood & Beyond
Employment law governs the obligations employers and employees have to one another. When an employer - whether federally sanctioned or private - violates employment laws, employees have the right to seek restitution for any damages incurred.
At Herbert & Weiss, LLP, our attorneys have decades of combined experience representing employees during employment law disputes.
What Are Common Employment Law Cases?
Types of disputes that often fall under the category of employment law include:
- Worker's compensation. If an employer is injured while working, they may be able to obtain compensation to aid their recovery.
- Employment discrimination. If a worker experiences discrimination in the workplace that violates acts such as the Title VII Civil Rights Act of 1964, that employee can file a suit to gain compensation from their employer.
- Family or medical leave and employee benefits. Employers are required to give employees certain benefits or leave opportunities, or face legal penalties.
- Wrongful termination. If an employee is wrongfully terminated, they can fight to gain compensation for their termination.
- Occupational safety and health violations. If an employer violates health and safety standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), an employee can file a suit to gain compensation and rectify the violations.
- Non-compete clauses. Employers often require employees to sign a non-compete clause to prevent employees from leaving and destabilizing their business. If the terms of a non-compete are unfair, an employer may face legal consequences.
- Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). If an employer issues an illegitimate NDA, they may face penalties similar to employers who issue unenforceable or unfair non-compete clauses.
At Herbert & Weiss, LLP, we handle employee-side and federal employment law disputes. If you believe an employer has violated your rights, we'll work with you to pursue compensation or other restitution for any damages you've incurred.
