Honolulu Employment Law Lawyer
Federal and state statutes protect employees from illegal acts committed by their employers. If you have been unjustly terminated or are the victim of harassment or discrimination, contact an experienced employment law attorney at the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Some employees are not “at will” and have detailed employment contracts that spell out the terms of their employment. If your contract is breached by your employer through an early termination without cause, employment law attorney Scot Stuart Brower has the experience to hold the employer to the terms of the contract and to seek any damages that resulted from its breach.
At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we have aggressively represented clients who have been victimized by a wide range of adverse and illegal employment actions such as:
- Sexual harassment and sex discrimination
- Racial discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Wrongful termination
- Wage and overtime disputes
- Non-compete agreements
- Severance agreements
Even with federal statutes and continuous training by companies to prevent such acts, incidents of harassment, discrimination and other negative employment actions still occur. Those responsible for such acts need to be held accountable.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) protects those who reported an illegal act by their employer from a retaliatory discharge. Whistleblowers can bring to light many illegal activities and should not be punished for doing the right thing. Wrongful termination in retaliation for an employee exposing illegal actions is simply against the law. The victim is entitled to damages, including lost wages and attorney fees (as allowed by the statute).
