Everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue a rewarding career. Many federal laws were passed during the past several decades to ensure that right and to protect workers from discrimination and unfair practices. Unfortunately, workers in Middle Tennessee and throughout the country still face uphill battles with their employers when it comes to getting fair treatment and safe working conditions.
At Ponce Law, our Nashville employment law attorneys fight for the rights of workers who face a variety of unfair treatment at work, including:
- Discrimination—Workplace discrimination comes in many forms. Employers may refuse to hire or promote workers with certain disabilities, or they may profile against workers based on their age, sex, religion, race, nationality, and more.
- Wage disputes—You’re entitled to getting paid for your labor—especially if you go above and beyond the standard 40-hour work week. But some employers try to avoid paying overtime by misclassifying employees as salaried or by manipulating payroll data and scheduling information.
Employers who violate federal workplace laws often rely on intimidation to get away with it. They think that workers will be too scared of losing their jobs or even being blacklisted in their industries to speak up.
That’s why our legal team handles all employment law cases carefully and with sensitivity to our clients, their families, and their jobs. It’s our goal to help you get both fair treatment and an opportunity to succeed in your career.
