Most Common Employment Disputes

In his 19 years of providing legal protection for small businesses, Dan Burke has seen every type of employment dispute you can imagine. To simplify things, here is a list of some of the most common disputes that he’s successfully mitigated over the years:

Wage Disputes

Wage disputes are a type of lawsuit that is filed when an employee feels that they were unfairly compensated for work that they did as defined by their employment agreement.

These are some of the most emotionally charged issues an employer can find themselves facing, and in the eyes of an objective third party,an attorney is required to move forward in a productive manner

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination suits occur when an employee feels that they have lost their job on grounds that they feel are unfair. Being an “at will” employment state, there needs to be very specific circumstances for wrongful termination to have legal grounds. However, these cases can be complicated, and a good attorney can protect an employer from fraudulent claims of wrongful termination.

Discrimination and Harassment

Discrimination and harassment claims occur when an employee feels that they have been wrongfully discriminated against at their place of work because of their race, religion, national origin, sex, pregnancy status, age or the presence of a disability. These claims tend to be highly sensitive, and the involvement of a well-trained attorney can mitigate the serious public implications that can come with these cases.

Severance Agreements

A severance agreement is an agreement made between employer and employee that defines the terms of which an employer/employee relationship will be terminated. These agreements can include things like final NDAs and specific information regarding the final compensation of the employee.
