Don’t Be Intimidated by Your Employer

by Staff Blogger | September 27th, 2017

Your family relies on your paycheck to keep up with everyday living expenses. But if your employer isn’t treating you fairly, you may feel like you’re being taken advantage of—especially if you’re afraid of retaliation for reporting wrongdoings or policy violations. Many employers think they can get away with treating their employees poorly by threatening to demote or even terminate them, but it’s important to remember that you have rights.

Ponce Law’s team of Nashville employment lawyers helps hard-working people like you who are experiencing a variety of unfair treatments from their bosses and superiors, including:

  • Insufficient accommodations or opportunities for a disability – The Americans with Disabilities Act protects all U.S. workers from discrimination if they have mental or physical disabilities.
  • Discrimination based on identifying categories – Several U.S. laws protect workers from being discriminated against in the workplace for reasons such as age, sex, religion, pregnancy, race, and nationality.
  • Wage disputes – The Fair Labor Standards Act says that if you’re a non-exempt (non-salaried) employee and you work more than 40 hours per week, you’re required to receive overtime pay.

Filing a claim against your employer can be stressful, and you may be reluctant to report unfair treatment when it comes to your job and career. But speaking out not only helps you–it can also help others at your company.

Our legal team treats all claims with the utmost confidentiality from beginning to end. Don’t let your employer take advantage of your hard work. Call today for a free consultation.
