Most law firms do a little bit of everything. Not us. The only thing we do is represent employees.
Employment law can be confusing. Plus, it's not always clear whether employers are satisfying their legal obligations to their employees. That can put you at a real disadvantage if something goes wrong on the job.
That's why we're here.
We started Fair Work for the sole purpose of helping employees understand and vindicate their rights. Since 2013, we have helped hundreds of workers from around the country recover millions of dollars in compensation and other damages. Whether you've been denied pay for time you've spent working, subjected to discrimination, been required to pool your tips with non-service staff – if it's happened in the workplace, one of us has probably dealt with it.
Our goal is to help employees understand their rights and obtain recovery when those rights have been violated. If you have questions about something that's happened on the job, get in touch with us to set up a consultation, or use the contact form at the bottom of this page to find out whether we can help you.
Tips + Service charges
Employers aren't allowed to require you to share tips or service charges with certain ineligible employees. If you've been required or encouraged to share your tips with other employees, give us a call — our team specializes in recovering tips that have been improperly distributed.
Discrimination happens, but the laws protecting against discrimination are complex. Fortunately, we have decades of experience pursuing and resolving claims for discrimination. If you feel you've been fired, penalized, or denied pay or benefits due to your race, sex, gender, orientation, or nationality, contact us. We'll listen to you.
wages + overtime
Your employer might be violating the law if you're not getting paid — or you're getting paid less than the minimum wage — for all the hours that you've spent working, such as doing pre-shift and post-shift work, traveling to and from job sites, or working more than 40 hours a week. We're happy to listen to any questions you have about your employer's pay structure, and advise you on your options.
Your employer isn't allowed to take certain deductions out of your pay, such as by docking your pay for register shortages or broken equipment. And even permissible deductions must be calculated in compliance with the law. If your employer is taking deductions out of your pay, contact us. We'll review the situation and let you know your rights.
Commission plans are often complicated and confusing — sometimes, deliberately so. If you think you haven't received all your earned commissions, are having your commissions incorrectly calculated, or are paid on a "draw against commission" system, get in touch with us. We'll go over your commission plan and let you know what we think.
retaliation + whistleblowing
You have the right to question your employer about workplace practices you believe violate the law. You also have the right to file complaints with state and federal agencies regarding employment practices you believe are illegal. If your employer has punished or penalized you for doing either of those things, you may have been unlawfully retaliated against.
