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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
