Employment Law

Law Offices of Michael A. Brewer offers Broad Experience in Employment Law

Employment law is a broad legal area covering all aspects of the employer/employee relationship. Laws prohibit discrimination based on race, gender, religion, national origin, or age. There are conflicting decisions on the issue of discrimination based on sexual orientation. Discriminatory practices most often are displayed as bias in:

  • Hiring
  • Promotion
  • Salary
  • Job assignment
  • Compensation
  • Wrongful termination

Employment law examples of racial discrimination or sexual harassment are in the newspaper every day. Understanding how to handle lawsuits involving these issues is not easy. There are many related issues involved, such as free speech rights. The law on the subject is expansive; the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Civil Rights Act, the Equal Pay Act and the American with Disabilities Act, are some examples of federal laws which apply to all employer/employee relationships.
