federal employment law

We all like to feel valued in the workplace. We often place a large measure of our personal integrity and pride in what we do for a living.


When the employer-employee relationship is severed it can be extraordinarily psychologically painful, as well as economically difficult.

The law affords employees some protections against adverse actions taken by their employers. If they can be shown to be motivated by race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or religion, such actions violate federal law.

We have experience resolving these kinds of employment disputes through mediation with the equal employment opportunities commission and the Texas workforce commission, and through litigation if necessary.

We have also successfully litigated Fair Labor Standards Act claims (FLSA), Family and Medical Leave Act claims (FMLA), and claims arising under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA).

If you’re being treated unjustly in the workplace we want to know about it.
