Employment Law

 

Every person deserves to earn fair wages and work in an environment free from discrimination. Keller Rohrback’s Employment Law attorneys fight to protect those rights for employees. Among Keller Rohrback’s attorneys are attorneys who previously worked for both the Employment Litigation Section of the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice as well as the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Keller Rohrback attorneys have extensive experience litigating complex employment cases, and they fight to ensure that employees’ rights are protected – whether it is the right to be free from discrimination, receive properly paid wages, be protected when reporting dishonest and illegal activities, or given proper warning before mass layoffs.

Keller Rohrback attorneys understand how important every dollar is to working families and are firmly committed to preventing wage theft. Wage Theft, a violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Davis-Beacon Act, and/or numerous State laws, can include the practice of nonpayment of overtime, denial of breaks, not providing workers their last paycheck after they leave a job, not paying for all hours worked, and/or not paying minimum wage.  Wage theft may also arise from employers wrongly claiming that they don’t have to comply with these laws because their workers are supposedly independent contractors or work for leasing companies.
