Birmingham Employment Lawyers Seek Fair Treatment for Workers

Skillful Alabama attorneys handle a full range of job-related matters

You don’t have to accept unlawful treatment on the job regardless of who your employer is. If you believe that someone has violated your workplace rights or that you’ve been fired for an illegal reason, the dedicated attorneys at Sanford Law Firm are here to help. Located in Birmingham, our employment lawyers have six decades of combined legal experience, and we use what we’ve learned to achieve strong results for Alabama employees in cases stemming from discrimination, harassment, unpaid wages, wrongful terminations and other violations of state and federal labor law.

Thorough firm advises on contract, labor and wage issues

When you understand the relevant legal standards that govern an employment law issue, you can make informed decisions about how to proceed. Our attorneys are well versed in the letter of the law and real-world considerations that can affect the outcome of matters involving:

  • Employment agreements — If the terms of your employment are formalized in a contract, we analyze the pertinent language and advocate for you if your employer breaches their contractual obligations. When the working relationship ends, we assist clients in the negotiation and enforcement of separation, severance and noncompete agreements.
  • Wage issues — Businesses cannot use the power they have over workers to cheat them out of the pay they’ve earned. In wage and overtime disputes, our firm battles to secure full compensation as promptly as possible.
  • Labor law — We provide knowledgeable counsel to unions and employees regarding labor issues such as collective bargaining, organization rules and conflicts with companies over improper practices.

Depending on the particular situation, the best way to accomplish your objective might be through litigation, filing a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or communicating directly with your employer. In every case, our attorneys explain your options and offer sound representation from start to finish.

Accomplished litigators represent wrongful termination claimants

Despite what you might have heard about the state’s “at-will employment” law, Alabama businesses are not allowed to fire employees for just any reason. Firings based on discrimination, illegal retaliation or contract violations might justify a wrongful termination action. If you’ve been dismissed, we work quickly to collect key evidence and counter false explanations that your employer uses to explain your dismissal.

Dedicated advocates aid victims of discrimination and harassment

Though you might believe that you didn’t get a job or promotion because of your race, religion, gender, age or disability, proving that illegal discrimination exists can be difficult. Our qualified employment litigators handle all types of bias claims for people who were harmed because of their membership in a protected class. We also assist individuals who have been sexually harassed or forced to work in a hostile environment. In all these matters, we outline the potential remedies and guide you through the steps you need to take to obtain relief.
