What Is Employment Litigation?
Employment litigation matters involve a wide range of situations that essentially occur when an employee’s rights are violated.
Here are some of the aspects of employment litigation to know about:
Wage and hour disputes: Employees should be paid for the hours they work, including overtime and holiday pay. If employers refuse to pay employees what they deserve, the impacted employee can take legal action to get the pay they deserve.
Discrimination: If an employee faces any kind of discrimination, they can file a complaint against the responsible party and employer. For instance, litigation can arise because of age, race, sexual orientation, color, ethnicity, and more.
FLSA: The Fair Labor Standards Act helps to ensure employees have the right to fair minimum wage, overtime pay, and other standards. When employees violate the FLSA and basic employee rights, they can be held accountable.
FMLA: The Family and Medical Leave Act protects employees who need to take unpaid leave for specified medical reasons. Should an employer deny the employee’s right to leave or attempts to retaliate against the employee for taking leave, they can be held accountable.
