“Employment law is my passion.”
Memphis Employment Law Attorney
Our law practice is devoted to helping individual workers and small business owners protect what matters most in their world. Whether this means helping a business owner protect his or her business from a Charge of Discrimination with the EEOC or helping a worker who is being harassed, my passion is employment law. I have practiced employment law throughout my entire career and have devoted hundreds, if not thousands, of hours to the study of the law and the prosecution or defense of employment law cases. I have achieved favorable results in hundreds of cases on behalf of employees and employers in the Memphis area, Shelby County and throughout West Tennessee.
The first step in our representation is the consultation. Contact Becker Law Firm at 901.881.6205 to arrange your initial consultation. During the initial consultation, I will sit down with you to discuss the facts of your situation and your legal options. We also discuss costs, possible recovery and timelines for activity. I represent both employers and employees in all facets of employment law:
- Job Discrimination — Claims base on unfair treatment in hiring, pay, assignments, promotions, discipline or firing on the basis of age, race, sex, disability, national origin or religion
- Sexual Harassment — Unwelcome advances, offensive language or behavior, or gender bias creating a hostile work environment
- Harassment – Not all harassment claims are based on sex or are sexual in nature. Other forms of harassment include claims based on age, race, disability, national origin or religious harassment.
- Employer Retaliation — Mistreatment of workers for reporting illegal activity, complaining about or supporting a claim for discrimination, refusing to violate laws, taking leave or filing claims against the company
- Employment Agreements – Agreements formed in the workplace, whether it is a noncompetition agreement, employment contract or severance agreement
- Family and Medical Leave – Claims based on either being denied the right to take leave, being refused reinstatement after leave or retaliation for having taken leave
- Wage and Hour — Failure to pay overtime, misclassifying employees
- Employment Defamation — Bad-mouthing by an ex-employer that costs an employee a new job
- Breastfeeding Rights — Failure to allow nursing mothers reasonable breaks and a place to express milk for their newborns
If you have a question about employment law, you do not need to talk to an attorney who handles employment law as part of a “diverse” practice. You deserve to talk to a lawyer who has a passion for and a deep understanding of employment law. I have devoted my practice to employment law and look forward to consulting with you about your employment law issue.
