Walcheske & Luzi Employment Law Practice Areas
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 laws.
Plan participants and their beneficiaries are protected from denial of their rightful claims to disability, medical, retirement, and other benefit claims, and also from breaches of fiduciary duties of heightened loyalty and care that their employers and plan administrators may owe them, under both federal and state laws.
Employees work hard now to take things easy later. Monies contributed to 401(k) and retirement plans should stay with participants, not go to their employers or financial firms. Employers have a duty to protect participants from excessive fees to help protect their futures.
Employees are protected from harassment and discrimination in the workplace by both state specific laws, 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.
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.
