Here are different types of employment law claims that our Colorado Springs attorneys can handle:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Whistleblower claims
  • Denial of overtime
  • Denial of benefits that are due under state, federal and local laws
  • Sexual harassment
  • Gender discrimination
  • Racial discrimination
  • Religious discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination

  • Differential treatment based on any number of protected classes
  • A non-compete that violates your rights
  • Disputes over unpaid commissions
  • Enforcement of a separation agreement
  • Representation in contract negotiations

There are many types of employment law claims, and many of them are related to discrimination. The Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act (CADA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit discrimination on the basis of a protected class. A protected class is a group of people who may be treated differently because of a protected characteristic. Discrimination can occur in job duties, hiring and firing.

Here are some examples of employment law cases that our experienced Colorado Springs employment attorneys have dealt with before:

  • A company refuses to promote a woman even though she is qualified. Emails reveal that the company representatives don’t want to promote the woman because of her age.
  • The company hires both men and women to work in fulfillment services. The employees are all employed for the same job and the same job title. However, the company assigns women to work with customers at the counter while men fulfill orders in the warehouse.
  • A man has been working at a company for five years. However, the man’s manager recently learned of the man’s sexual orientation. They fired the man for a pretextual reason.
  • A worker is fired after he or she refuses the sexual advances of a superior.
  • The company fails to honor terms of a separation agreement. They were to have made severance pay within 30 days. The company did not make payment.
  • When a government employee reports embezzlement, the department retaliates against her by forcing a demotion.
  • A local media personality signs a non-compete. However, the non-compete is unreasonable. It is too long, and it covers an excessive geographic scope. The person needs the non-compete declared void to continue to make a living.

We believe that outstanding legal representation begins with getting to know our clients. That’s why our Colorado Springs employment law attorneys start by understanding you and your story. Our team is fully versed in all of the legal issues relevant to an employment law case. We identify the issues and get to work pursuing your claim.

Aggressive legal representation in an employment law case may take several forms. We may pursue your case through representation in court. Your claim may also go to a jury trial. It may be necessary to file legal motions and pursue formal hearings, and we have the expertise to handle that on your behalf.

In some types of claims, direct negotiations and skilled conflict resolution may meet your objectives. We have training on how to mediate complex and contentious legal issues. We talk to the other party directly on your behalf. Each employment law case is unique, and we tailor our representation to your case’s individual needs and personal goals.
