Employment Law

Fighting for employee rights. The Adams Law Firm represents employees who have suffered the indignities of discrimination, hostility, sexual harassment, retaliation or violence in the workplace.

We also counsel small businesses interested in ensuring compliance with state and federal employment laws.

Leveling the Playing Field

Unlawful employment practices can devastate an individual’s financial or emotional security, reputation or career.  Discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying, abusive working conditions and workplace violence are never OK.  Adams Law is committed to protecting employees from an abuses of power in the workplace that occur when employers make decisions about hiring, promotion, discipline or termination based on discriminatory motives.    



Sexual Harassment

Examples of matters we handle include the following:

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Workplace Assault
  • Discrimination
  • Requests for Accommodation
  • Bullying in the Workplace
  • Retaliation
  • Wage and Hour Law Violations
  • Employment Agreements
  • Non-Compete Agreements
  • Severance Negotiations
  • Workplace Investigations
  • Improper Classification of Employees

    Safety in the Workplace

    Sexual Harassment, Bullying and Workplace Violence are all too common in the workplace. Every employee, however, has the right to work in a safe environment free from unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favors, or other demeaning conduct such subjecting individuals to unwelcome touching, jokes or images. Both women and men can be victims of such misconduct. Employees likewise should feel safe from threats of violence, intimidation, hostility or bullying. An employer who permits this type of behavior can and should be held accountable.

    At The Adams Law Firm, we believe everyone has the right to work without fear of sexual harassment, bullying or workplace violence. Standing up to sexual harassment or other threats to safety in the workplace is intimidating. We can help employees navigate the difficult process of reporting incidents, and provide representation in legal proceedings that may be necessary to protect an employee’s rights.

    Equality in the Workplace

    Discrimination may involve adverse employment actions (involving hiring, discipline, demotion, or termination, for example) based on a protected classification. Such classification may include an employee’s race, disability, gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, age, religion or ethnicity. An employee’s status in a protected class should not limit their career opportunities. Anticipating the arrival of a new child from birth or adoption, for example, should be a time of joyful expectations, not job discrimination. Too often employers make personnel decisions based on unfounded fears of lost productivity or unwillingness to make reasonable accommodations for an expectant employee, or an employee who is entitled to accommodations for a disability.

    Protecting & Enforcing Your Rights

    If you have experienced sexual harassment or a workplace assault, employment discrimination, wage and hour law violations, wrongful termination, or retaliation; if you are unsure about your rights to protection under the Family and Medical Leave Act; if you believe you may need accommodations related to a disability; or if you need advice navigating a disciplinary action that you believe is improper, we can help.

    We accept many matters on a contingency basis. Consultation and advice in certain employment matters may involve a fee. Contact us for more details and to discuss what steps may be best for you.
