Employment Law Attorney in Dallas
Serving Workers in Rockwall and Surrounding Communities
No matter where you are in the United States, you are entitled to a safe and fair work environment. You have certain rights that your employer must respect—and, if they do not, you can report their actions and even file a lawsuit.
But standing up against unacceptable employment practices is no easy task. You may feel as though you will be ostracized by your colleagues or even demoted or fired by your boss if you speak up. At The Cramer Law Group, however, our attorney is here to provide the dedicated support you need to navigate this stressful process. He wants you to know that you do not have to go through this alone.
If you have experienced discrimination, wrongful termination, or another violation of your rights as an employee, Attorney Michael Cramer is ready to use his 26+ years of experience to protect your wellbeing and hold your employer accountable for their actions. He is here to remind you that, when you decide to speak out against unfair employment practices, you help create safer and healthier work environments for workers everywhere.
Types of Cases We Handle
At The Cramer Law Group, our attorney personally assists workers with employment disputes of all kinds. He can help you understand your rights as soon as a dispute arises, and he can help you file a complaint or lawsuit if your employer refuses to rectify the situation.
Here are just a few examples of employment law cases our attorney handles:
- Discrimination. Your employer cannot make any employment decision (e.g. hiring, firing, training, demoting, etc.) based on your age, sex, color, race, national origin, religion, or disability. You also cannot be penalized for having to participate in an emergency evacuation.
- Sexual harassment. Technically a form of sex-based discrimination, sexual harassment refers to unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favors, and touching of a sexual nature.
- Retaliation. If you initiate or participate in a workplace discrimination investigation, reject or resist harassment, or exercise your rights in any other way, your employer cannot retaliate with an unfavorable employment decision (e.g. firing you, demoting you, intentionally interfering with your work/life balance, etc.).
- Wrongful termination. Most employees in the United States are employed at will, meaning their employer can terminate their employment at any time, for virtually any reason. However, you may have experienced wrongful termination if you were let go despite a written or verbal guarantee of employment, or if your termination was a form of discrimination.
- Disputes over wages, benefits, guaranteed time off, and more. State and federal employment laws entitle you to certain levels and forms of pay, such as an hourly rate that is no less than the minimum wage, overtime pay (in certain situations), workers’ compensation if you are injured on the job, and time off for reasons covered by the Family Medical Leave Act.
Identifying a violation of your rights in any of the above situations can be difficult, which is why we urge you to bring your case to The Cramer Law Group right away. We have provided top-tier counsel and representation for individuals throughout Texas since 1994, and you deserve this level of legal support and advocacy.
