Know Your Rights Under Federal Employment Law

Federal employment law governs many issues involving wages, work hours, leave and overtime, just to name a few. As an employee, you have the right to:

  • Earn a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour and time-and-a-half overtime pay when you work over 40 hours per week under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
  • Take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for qualifying reasons without losing your job under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
  • Request reasonable accommodations to apply for or work at your job under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Earn the same pay rate for equal work as an employee of the opposite sex under the Equal Pay Act.

The following federal regulations also protect you from discrimination if you…

  • Are 40 years old or older – Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Are pregnant or developed a physical or mental impairment during pregnancy or childbirth – Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • Are a member of another protected class – Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

If you’re concerned your rights have been violated, consult one of our employment discrimination lawyers in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We’re prepared to take your case to court to safeguard your rights.

Our legal team handles employment cases in federal and state courts in South Carolina. We can also represent you in hearings with federal and state administrative agencies.

We Hold Discriminatory Organizations Accountable

Although it’s illegal for employers to discriminate against applicants or employees based on certain characteristics, it still happens with unfortunate frequency. If you’ve experienced discrimination at work, reach out to our team for help holding your employer accountable.

Are You A Member Of A Protected Class?

Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it’s illegal for employers, public service providers, educators and law enforcement officers to discriminate against people based on certain characteristics. This law prohibits workplace harassment and retaliation against members of protected classes. That means your employer can’t hire, fire or refuse to promote you because of your:

  • Biological attributes, including sex and age
  • Physical attributes, including race and color
  • Lifestyle choices, including religion or marital status
  • Core identity, including sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Physical or health conditions, including pregnancy and disability

If you’ve experienced this type of discrimination, we can hold the at-fault party accountable by filing an individual or a class-action lawsuit. Our lawyers can:

  • Inform you of your rights
  • Negotiate with your employer to set things right
  • Walk you through the administrative process
  • Bring your case before a judge in a state or federal court

As proven trial lawyers, we have the skillset it takes to handle these cases in court, if needed.
