- Wrongful termination — Not every termination is legal. Do you suspect your employer fired you illegally? We can evaluate the situation and help you take action against your employer if that is the case.
- Sexual harassment — Unwanted and unsolicited sexual advances, along with other such behaviors and actions are illegal. You do not have to tolerate this kind of treatment. We can help.
- Retaliation — Your employer cannot punish you for exercising your rights or looking out for the rights of another person, which includes making complaints about discrimination, harassment and more. Your employer cannot retaliate against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim either.
- Severance agreements — If your employer offers you a severance package in a layoff or termination situation, make sure the agreement is in your best interests. If you agree to give up your right to sue your employer, you should make sure it’s worth it.
- Unemployment benefits — Were you denied unemployment benefits when your employer terminated you? Many employers contest an employee’s legitimate claim for unemployment benefits without any basis to do so. We can help you file an appeal and prepare for your hearing with the Commonwealth of Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet’s Division of Unemployment Insurance to increase your chances of successfully obtaining the benefits you need and deserve.
