Practical Strategies And Legal Experience: Meet Free Parking And No Elevators

Championing Employee Rights And Workplace Fairness

Work can be occasionally unpleasant or unfair. Still, it should have nothing to do with demeaning or illegal behavior. Once the employer here in Seattle or greater Washington crosses the line or allows other employees or others to do it, the plaintiff can turn to the legal system for protection.

Founded in 2010, DC Law Group features the services of attorney Matthew Cunanan and a legal team that can help clients protect themselves from this harmful and illegal behavior. We will explain your rights and provide a comprehensive support system, skillfully guiding you through the complexities of your claim, from initial consultation to the resolution of your case.

Common Examples Of Workplace Violations

Employment law is the cornerstone of a fair and just workplace, protecting those who may be victims of workplace injustices. There are a number of actions or inactions that violate workplace regulations and laws:

  • Harassment: Unwelcome conduct based on race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information that creates a hostile work environment. For instance, persistent offensive jokes targeting a specific group may constitute harassment.
  • Sexism: This is discriminatory treatment or pervasive attitudes undermining an individual based on their gender, like a qualified female employee overlooked for promotion solely due to her gender.
  • Unlawful Termination: This is dismissal from a job in a manner that breaches one’s contract or violates employment laws, such as being fired for taking legally protected family leave.
  • Discrimination: Unjust treatment in the workplace due to one’s race, age, gender, disability, or other protected characteristics, like an employee being paid less due to their ethnicity. These are all violations of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
  • Wage Disputes: Conflicts arising from unpaid overtime, minimum wage violations, or misclassification of employees as independent contractors.
  • Retaliation: While employees raise their hands to speak out against bad behavior, employers summarily fire or transfer them to a lesser position rather than honestly address the real issue.

Any of these can sidetrack a career, so we encourage you to come in, especially if your employer does not satisfactorily address your initial complaints.
