Protecting Alabama Employee Rights
We know it can take courage to speak up when there is something illegal or unjust happening at the workplace. After all, you depend on an income to pay your bills and provide for yourself and family. At Capstone Law, LLC, we provide strong, personalized representation in even the most difficult employment matters.
Types Of Cases We Take On
Attorney Brian O. Noble represents employees who have been victims of discrimination and harassment on the job. He represents cases such as:
- Discrimination: Federal and state laws, including the Civil Rights Act, protect workers from certain forms of discrimination. If your employer discriminated against you because of your race, age, sex, color, national origin, religion, disability or another personal attribute, you may be able to seek fair treatment with the help of an attorney.
- Sexual harassment: Sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal. If you were a victim of harassment at work, Brian can advise you regarding your legal rights.
- Wage and hour violations: Wage and hour violations can involve unpaid overtime, job misclassification or other problems with your employer. Brian can help you deal with these violations, either on an individual basis or by a group of employees who have had the same experience – this is known as a collective action.
- Wrongful termination: If you were illegally fired as a result of discrimination, retaliation or another issue, you may have a case worth pursuing.
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations: This act protects workers who take time off to attend to important personal or family issues. If you were fired, punished or otherwise mistreated because you asked for family or medical leave from work, a lawsuit may be in your best interest.
- Employer retaliation: Sometimes employers illegally retaliate against employees who report problems, file claims, or otherwise stand up to their boss or company and assert their rights. This retaliation can form the basis of a case.
- Federal Employer Liability Act/Railroad Law. We handle railroad injuries and employment actions. The Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) protects Railroad workers who are injured on-the-job. In many respects, a FELA claim is better for the employee than a workers’ comp claim. Employers often try to lead the employee into an inferior claim and into receiving less compensation than they deserve. If you are dealing with a railroad-related injury, we can help.
Every employment situation is different. Unfortunately, some unfair and unethical actions by employers are not illegal, so it is important to consult an attorney if you have questions about your situation.
