Whittel & Melton, LLC

Employment Law

Employees and employers have the right to certain expectations and obligations in the workplace. When these expectations fail to be met or are blatantly ignored, those harmed have the right to seek financial damages.

Your career is important. We can help you fight for it.

At the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton, LLC, we take employment violations quite seriously and believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly in the workplace. It is essential to understand your options when you believe your rights have been violated in the workplace, and our staff of experienced attorneys can help. There are numerous state and federal laws that protect the rights of employees and allow those harmed by sexual harassment, discrimination and all other mistreatments to actively pursue compensation.

At Whittel & Melton, we handle all state and federal employment and labor law matters, including:

  • Employment discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, color, disability, pregnancy, national origin and sexual orientation
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Unpaid Wages/Overtime
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Whistleblower Actions
  • Contract Disputes
  • Medical Leave
  • Retaliation Discharge
  • Non-compete Agreements

Navigating the treacherous waters of the modern workplace can be very complicated. We are committed to defending your rights for all types of labor and employment disputes. The sooner we can get involved with your case, the sooner we can collect applicable evidence, acquire any possible witness statements and assess the facts. It is important to be aware that many employment law matters are time sensitive, meaning that if a lawsuit is not filed within a specified time period you will lose your right to take legal action.
