Referring Attorneys


 

What are You Missing?

Are you getting the best, most complete results for your clients?  We have learned that when a client has a workplace injury, personal injury, or other legal issue, they often also have related employment law claims.  Some examples include:

Overtime & Minimum Wage Claims.  Our motto is “Everybody Violates the FLSA.” Common violations include misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime or as independent contractors, improper rounding practices and deductions, failing to include non-discretionary bonus in overtime rates, paying nonexempt employees a day rate or salary, and not paying an overtime premium.

FMLA/ADA Claims.  Many times, workplace injuries and other personal injuries give rise to Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and disability discrimination (ADA) issues.  For example, as a practice, many employers fail to recognize unpaid leave as a reasonable accommodation to a qualifying disability and terminate an injured workers’ employment after the expiration of FMLA leave or after another set amount of time.  This practice likely violates the FMLA and/or ADA and related state law statutes.

Let us partner with you in determining whether your client’s employer violated the FLSA, FMLA, ADA or other employment law.

We Make It Easy.

You Will Find Missed OpportunitiesBecause wage and hour and medical leave laws are technical and complex, it is often the case that, “You don’t know, what you don’t know.”  But as the folk singer Leadbelly said, “It’s so easy when you know how!”  We will provide you the training and resources to help you easily identify potential issues.
