DuPage County Employment Lawyers Helping Employees Protect Their Rights

Workers may encounter a number of issues that may affect their ability to find or maintain employment and ensure that they are properly compensated for their work. Fortunately, there are multiple federal and state labor laws that protect employees' rights. In some cases, employees may become involved in disputes with employers regarding violations of employment laws, or they may need to take steps to ensure that they will be able to earn the proper income and benefits based on their education, skills, and experience. When addressing these matters, workers can ensure that their rights and interests will be protected by working with a skilled employment law attorney.

At Molho and Associates, LLC, our lawyers have multiple decades of legal experience representing clients in cases involving employment matters. We work to provide our clients with a full understanding of the laws that apply to them, and we help them determine the best ways to resolve their concerns effectively. In addition to helping workers address discrimination or other violations of their rights, we provide representation for professionals and highly-compensated employees, assisting with the negotiation of employment contracts and ensuring that they are prepared to address issues that may affect their ability to continue working in their chosen careers.

Legal Help for Workers in Employment Disputes

Employees may need to assert their rights in a variety of situations, and they may need to take action to address labor law violations by employers that have caused them to experience financial losses or otherwise affected their careers. Our firm can help employees address issues such as:

  • Discrimination - Employees cannot be treated differently because of factors such as race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or age. Workers may be able to take action against employers who refused to hire them because of these factors, passed them over for promotion, did not provide equal pay for equal work, or did not take steps to prevent a hostile work environment.
  • Sexual harassment - Workers can take steps to address any unwelcome sexual comments or conduct in the workplace, and employers should respond promptly and effectively to any reports of harassment. An employee may take action to address an employer's failure to address these issues. They may also seek compensation for harm to their employment and career that occurred because of sexual harassment, such as a supervisor offering promotions or benefits in exchange for sexual favors.
  • Disability accommodations - Employees who have physical or mental disabilities must be provided with reasonable accommodations to ensure that they can perform work and receive the same benefits and opportunities as other employees. Workers may take action against employers who refused to provide the necessary accommodations.
  • Family and medical leave - Workers are generally allowed to take unpaid leave because they suffer from serious health issues or to care for a family member or a new child. Employees may need to address an employer's refusal to provide leave or other adverse actions by employers in response to requests for medical leave.
  • Wage and hour disputes - Employees may become involved in disputes with employers regarding the wages paid for the time they worked, including the failure to provide overtime pay.
  • Retaliation or wrongful termination - An employer cannot penalize or terminate an employee for reporting discrimination or workplace safety issues, taking family or medical leave, or filing a workers' compensation claim. Employees may take legal action to address these issues, and they may ask to be restored to a former position or pursue compensation for the wages lost because of an employer's actions.
