Throughout the course of time, employees have, unfortunately, been mistreated by their employers. Of course, this is not always the case, but there are many times where employers fail to treat their employees with the respect and dignity they deserve. Fortunately, we live in a time where employees can openly contest such wrongful behavior on the part of their employers in the court of law. For this very reason, if you are looking to pursue a claim against your employer for any sort of wrongdoing, you cannot hire just any attorney. You need an attorney who has the skill and experience needed to tactfully and efficiently guide you through the legal process, prove your claim, and hopefully achieve a favorable outcome on our behalf. This is not always easy, however, if you are looking to file a claim against your employer or former employer, you’ve come to the right place. Attorney Vigilante founded The Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. over 20 years ago, and since then, she has been a champion of all those who believe they have been wronged in the workplace.

Types of Employment Litigation
As you know, there are various ways in which companies or their employers can oppress hard-working, honest members of their team. For this very reason, there are several different types of claims those individuals can bring against their employers. Some of those claims are as follows:
- Workplace Discrimination Claims
- Workplace Harassment Claims
- Wage & Hour Disputes
- Wrongful Discharge or Termination Claims
- Employee Benefit Claims
- Sexual Harassment Claims
- Workplace Safety Violation Claims
Of course, these are only a few of the various claims that can be brought against an employer, though the one thing they all have in common is that they are all based on various employment-related laws that have been established through the years. This is why you need an attorney who is not only familiar with but well-versed in these laws. Some of the laws that are in place to protect employees throughout the country are as follows:
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
- The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
- The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA)
- The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
- The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
- The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
Our firm knows the ins and outs of these Acts and the rights they afford employees throughout the United States, and we can use them to prove your claim when it comes time to enter litigation.
