Starting or Leaving a Job
When you’re negotiating salary, benefits or severance with your employer, having an experienced attorney on your side can strengthen your hand. We can help.

How Can We Help?

Contracts/Severance

We review all types of employment agreements for employees, such as those for separations (severance) and those restricting certain activities (non-competes, non-solicitations, non-disclosures).

Wrongful Termination

Even if you’re an at-will employee, your employer can’t fire you because of your protected class, for blowing the whistle on misconduct or in retaliation for exercising your rights in good faith. If you’ve been fired for an illegal reason, we’ll fight for the compensation and resolution you deserve.

Discrimination

Treating employees unfairly because of gender, race, age or any other protected category is illegal. If you’ve been a victim of discrimination in the workplace, we’ll help you find your voice.

Harassment

No one should have to go to work every day in a hostile work environment. The law takes a dim view of employers that perpetrate or enable harassment, and we’ll fight for your legal rights from start to finish.

Employer Retaliation

Were you retaliated against for forming or joining a union, filing for workers’ compensation, or making a complaint about harassment or discrimination in good faith? That’s against the law, and we’ll hold your employer accountable.

Medical Leave/FMLA

You may have certain rights to take time off work to care for your own or a family member’s illness. Empower Legal Group will fight to uphold those rights.


Advocacy

We are committed to achieving equality in the workplace and support pay transparency and closing the gender pay gap.
