Effective Employment Law Lawyers
Protect Your Rights While Still Employed
Most of our clients have never consulted with an employment attorney before meeting with us and most never thought they would ever have to. They are intelligent, hard working, well qualified, loyal employees who have always performed their duties in an exemplary fashion.
Then something happens; for no apparent reason they're treated differently than fellow employees. For the first time they get a performance review with unfair criticisms of their work, or out of the blue they are put on a performance improvement plan. Sometimes employees are placed in an environment which makes them very uncomfortable because of remarks made by their immediate supervisor or fellow employees relating to sex, race, national origin, or religion; or an employee might be asked to do something illegal in order to keep their job. Other situations may arise which for the first time, make an employee uncertain how to respond.
Unfortunately, most people do not seek legal advice because they don't know an attorney and they don't think they have a case an attorney would handle because nothing has happened yet. By doing nothing, or responding in the wrong way, they may set themselves up to be terminated with no legal recourse, or they may get frustrated and quit the job, making it twice as hard to seek legal recourse. Employers are relieved when an employee quits because they know an employee will then have to prove they were constructively discharged in addition to any underlying claim. That's why it makes every case twice as hard if the employee quits.
We have many years of experience representing employees on the job. We have consulted with employees and helped them plan strategies to keep their jobs. We have helped them write responses to unfair performance reviews, advised them how to best deal with unfair treatment, and how to preserve a potential cause of action for future litigation if needed. We have helped them identify direct evidence and circumstantial evidence of employment discrimination.
We have performed these services for our clients without the employer ever knowing an attorney was being consulted. The only person who knew was our client. We have helped employees on the job not only in Michigan but in many other states including Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Ohio, Massachusetts, Montana, Texas, Illinois, and others. Because we have also successfully litigated cases in states other than Michigan, we continue to represent our clients in Court if needed.
