Employment Law

There are certain behaviors that employees shouldn't have to put up with in the workplace. Additionally, an employer cannot fire or refuse to hire an employee for discriminatory reasons. At the federal level, these laws are governed by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and expanded by the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you feel discriminated against by your employer, if your employer does not pay you in accordance with the law, or if you experience retaliation for reporting illegal conduct by your employer, Tungsten Law Center can help you hold your employer accountable for its unethical conduct.


Cases We Handle

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination occurs when your employer fires you for an unlawful reason. This may be because you reported harassment or discrimination to your supervisor. Tungsten Law Center can help you recover damages or apply for reinstatement if your employer wrongly fired you and you want to continue working.



If an employer makes decisions in the workplace based on discriminatory grounds, it is a violation of the law. Federal law protects certain characteristics, such as race, gender, disability, religion, and age. There are two types of employment discrimination lawsuits:

  1. Anyone who alleges workplace harassment or a hostile work environment.

  2. A person who alleges that a major employment decision is made on the basis of unlawful discrimination.

In the latter type of case, it is illegal and prohibited by law for an employer to base hiring, firing, or promotion decisions on discriminatory grounds. Hostile work environment claims alleging a pattern or culture of abusive behavior based on race, sexual orientation, gender, or other protected characteristics. The employment attorneys at Tungsten Law Center have experience litigating both types of claims under state and federal law.


Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment claims fall into the general category of hostile work environment claims. As a rule, this involves repeated undesirable developments in the employment situation. If an employee who is the target of unwanted sexual advances reports the misconduct to her supervisor or human resources, those in a position to report are expected to take corrective action. If not, you may be able to sue the company for hostile work environment.

Unpaid Wages

One of the most common lawsuits brought by employment attorneys is one in which an employee claims that their employer is not paying them properly. Employees may be incorrectly classified as independent contractors when they should be classified as full-time employees. Employees may be classified as managers or professional employees. In other words, if you collect overtime pay, you will be compensated according to your salary. Tungsten Law Center can help you determine if your employer is not paying you properly.


Whistleblower Claims

Under the law, employers cannot retaliate against employees who report criminal or illegal activity to authorities. Additionally, employers cannot retaliate against employees who report misconduct that is contrary to the public interest. For example, if you work at a restaurant and report unsanitary conditions to the health department, the law prohibits your employer from retaliating against you. In this case, you can sue for unfair dismissal.
