What you do for a living is part of who you are as a person. So when things go wrong at work, it affects you in a profound way. Michael Ross is passionate about representing employees who have been discriminated against, wrongfully terminated, or not paid the wages they have earned.
The law prohibits discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age, disability, work injury, family medical leave, whistle blowing, military service or domestic violence. If any one of these reasons was a substantial factor in your termination, then you have a claim against your employer for unlawful employment practices.
Wage theft occurs when an employer fails to pay its employees the wages they have earned and are legally entitled to receive. Wage theft can occur in many different ways: not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, not paying wages on time, not paying wages upon termination, not paying vacation upon termination, and taking unlawful deductions from your paycheck.
Paying for an attorney when you are not receiving a paycheck can seem impossible. The laws that protect employees provide for the recovery of attorney fees to allow employees access to the justice system. Michael represents employees on a contingency fee basis where the attorney fee depends upon settling the case or winning the case at trial.
