Protect Your Rights
If you feel you have been terminated, harassed or otherwise discriminated against in the workplace, the best thing to do is contact a lawyer. An experienced attorney can advise you how to proceed in a prudent manner.
Unfortunately, people often make critical mistakes that can harm their ability to recover for their employer's wrongful treatment. Knowing how to carefully document and report misconduct is important. Knowing the consequences of a job resignation is also important. An attorney can inform you about the steps to take to protect your rights.

Sexually Harassed Employee Receives $250,000
Our client came to us after being subjected to repeated and unwanted sexual comments and behavior in her workplace. One of only a few women working in a garbage collection facility, our client endured sexual comments and actions from her co-workers until she sought guidance from an employee assistance program about the harassing behaviors. She was thereafter terminated. Her employer maintained that she had violated the company’s attendance policy and that this justified her termination. We investigated her claim and determined that she was not, in fact, in violation of the company attendance policy and that her employer should be held accountable for the sexual harassment she suffered. We then negotiated a settlement with her former employer for $250,000.
In the state of Washington, any employee who has been denied the overtime pay to which they are entitled can receive up to twice the amount they should have been paid. In a tough economy, more employers are likely to play games with their employees’ overtime pay.
