Employment Law Practice Areas
At Walcheske & Luzi, LLC we’ve built a reputation for excellence in all areas of employment law and will do our absolute best to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Wage & Hour
Our attorneys are knowledgeable about all legal issues regarding wages (salary v. hourly pay), overtime pay, breaks, bonuses, travel time, commissions, hours of work, “on call” work, compensation, and benefits under federal and state law.
In the United States, employees, former employees, and beneficiaries, are protected from denial of employer-provided disability, medical, retirement and other benefit claims by ERISA under federal law in the private sector, and under state law for public or other types of ERISA-exempted benefit plans.
Workplace Discrimination & Harassment
Wisconsin employees are protected from harassment in the workplace by both Wisconsin state law, Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA), and federal laws, such as Title VII and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
It is illegal for an employer to terminate, discipline, demote, or harass an employee because an employee complained or participated in an investigation about discrimination, harassment, or illegal practices.
Wisconsin’s Workers’ Compensation laws cover accidents and disease-causing injuries that arise out of an employee’s employment.
We will closely review any employment contract or agreement, provide a full assessment and explanation of its provisions, and openly and honestly discuss the options and determine whether revisions are needed.
