Experienced lawyer Paul Bennett handles employment law cases involving unemployment benefits, wage and hour claims, Equal Pay Act claims, ERISA, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), wrongful termination, and discrimination.

For employees who are about to be terminated or who are about to leave their employment, we can aggressively negotiate severance packages.
Protect yourself from discrimination and harassment. Fight for your rights.
Under state and federal laws employers may not harass or discriminate against an employee based upon their race, gender, religion, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, or disability, or because the employee is over the age of 40. It is also illegal to punish employees for complaining about such treatment.
As an Employment Law Firm, we represent those who have been wrongfully terminated, retaliated against, or faced an unlawful action in the workplace based upon any of the following:
- Race or color discrimination
- National origin discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Gender discrimination
- Marital status discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Sexual orientation (or perceived sexual orientation) discrimination
- Disability discrimination: including perceived disability, mental illness and failure to accommodate
- Age discrimination
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Sexual harassment
- Hostile work environment
- Harassment or retaliation based on any category of discrimination or based on pursuing any legal right, such as complaining about illegal or unethical activity, taking family medical leave (FMLA) or filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Reporting illegal activity of an employer to a law enforcement agency (whistle-blower)
We also assist clients with contract matters, including reviewing non-compete agreements and negotiating or reviewing severance agreements.
Time is of the essence.
There is a time limit on filing claims of discrimination, unlawful job actions and unfair or illegal treatment in the workplace. It can be heartbreaking to speak to someone who appears to have a legitimate claim, but the short window of opportunity for making the claim has “closed”. If you are unclear of the time you have, or of the process, call to speak to our Employment Law Attorney. You can also call if your case is already progressing through the procedural stages. He often has been brought in to help after an employee has attempted to handle it alone. It can be beneficial to have advice from the start.
