Employment Law

Employment law concerns the regulations that govern and protect the rights of employers and workers. At Tand & Associates we can successfully represent either party in the workplace. On the one hand, we protect workers from discrimination and retaliation; on the other, we help employers keep apprised of, and compliant with, laws concerning their policies in terms of hiring, promoting, paying, providing leave, disciplining, and terminating employees.

Areas of employment law we assist our clients with include:

  • Establishment of company policies
  • Employment agreements
  • Disputes between employees and employers
  • Sexual harassment claims and lawsuits
  • The Family Medical Leave Act
  • Wage and Hour Laws
  • Workers’ Compensation

Whether you are the head of a company or an employee, our up-to-date knowledge of federal and state law, as well as our skill in negotiation and litigation, will serve you well.

Discrimination and Harassment

At Tand and Associates, we work hard for our clients, intensely focused on protecting them from harassment and discrimination of all types. In so doing, we hope our efforts also assist the community at large, moving us all towards greater fairness and integrity. Our attorneys deal with all kinds of discrimination and harassment, including those involving gender identity and sexual orientation, family situations and pregnancy, age, race, disability, religion, and ethnicity.

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination

Sexual discrimination, based on gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation, has been around for a long, long time. There are still parts of the world where such discrimination is not only allowed but embedded in the social fabric. Fortunately, In the United States, and throughout most civilized nations, it is now against federal law to harass people of any gender or sexual orientation with words or actions, or to discriminate against them in terms of education, housing, or employment.

In terms of employment, this means that no individual has to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or any sexual conduct that creates a hostile work environment. It also means that it is illegal for you to be denied a raise, promotion, or bonus, or to be terminated from your position because of your sexual identity or because you have refused to put up with sexual harassment.

Pregnancy or Family Responsibilities Discrimination

While pregnancy discrimination targets only women, family responsibilities discrimination, like sexual discrimination, can be directed at anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Family responsibilities discrimination refers to employment discrimination that occurs because of your situation at home, such as being a single parent or having a sick or disabled child or adult to care for.

If, in spite of fine credentials and a track record of excellent job performance, you are not hired for a position you are well-qualified for, or if you are passed over for a promotion simply because you are pregnant or have greater than average responsibilities on the homefront, your employer may very well be breaking the law. At Tand & Associates we can help you negotiate or litigate a settlement ensuring not only that the illegal behavior at your workplace will be addressed, but that you will be compensated for the unjust treatment you have undergone.

Age, Race and Other Types of Harassment and Discrimination

Our team of attorneys at Tand & Associates understands the pain, anger and humiliation you experience when you suffer harassment and/or discrimination. Whether you are being taunted because of you age, ethnicity, race, disability or sexual orientation, inappropriate and derogatory words or actions can make your workplace a living hell. Derisive comments about women, men, gays, lesbians, transgender individuals, the elderly, the disabled, individuals of particular races, religions or ethnicities need not be directed at you to be offensive to your sensibilities. Whoever you are, you are entitled to work in an environment free of hostility and harassment, an environment in which all people are judged, as Martin Luther King, Jr. espoused, “on the content of their character.”

Though unfortunately prejudice continues to rear its ugly head in the workplace and almost every place else, Tand & Associates is here to strongly support you as you fight against it. If you have been harassed or discriminated against for any of the above reasons, please contact us. We will provide much more than a sympathetic ear -- we will help you get the equitable treatment and compensation for deserve.

Civil Rights Litigation

At Tand & Associates, we are dedicated to protecting the civil rights of our clients, rights that, unfortunately, are all too often threatened. Whether you have been treated unfairly in terms of hiring, promotion, discipline, or termination on the job, or experienced discrimination anywhere because of your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or religion, our attorneys have the know-how to defend you.

The Constitution and a number of federal laws protect your right to fair and equal treatment, but there are times when even those tasked with enforcing such regulations behave abusively. If you have been harassed or threatened by police, or have experienced police brutality due to prejudice or discrimination, our lawyers will step in with the knowledge and power to defend you.

You are specifically protected by the following civil rights laws, laws our attorneys are well-versed in: 

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963
  • The Age Discrimination and Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990

You are also protected by law from sexual harassment which includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical attention of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment needn’t be directed at you personally. Offensive comments about

women, men, gays, lesbians, transgender individuals -- all are against the law. Not every sexual statement or dirty joke rises to the level of sexual harassment, but a hostile work environment with pervasive taunting or derision is illegal.
