Often employees and businesses find themselves involved with litigation. Business owners may find themselves dealing with breached contracts or partners taking business opportunities. And lawyers or judges may be in need of help defending their licenses before the bar. The Law Office of Mynor E. Rodriguez P.C. has attorneys experienced in helping protect your rights. Our commercial litigation lawyer can help.
Employees, on the other hand, may discover that their employer has not been paying them the full compensation that they are due by not paying overtime. Employees may also find themselves discriminated against due to their age, gender, race, ethnicity, or because they have reported wrongdoing on the part of their employer.
Partners in business and directors of companies have a duty to deal in good faith with those within the business. They also have an obligation not to take company opportunities for their own. Additionally, lawyers and judges may find themselves in need of representation before the Bar. The attorneys of The Law Offices of Mynor E. Rodriguez P.C. can handle fiduciary claims as part of our commercial litigation docket.
Employees and employers both have obligations within that relationship. If employment contracts are breached, we have the knowledge to help. Contact our commercial litigation lawyer today.
Wage and Hour Claims
Employers must pay fair and complete wages, including overtime. Employers cannot misclassify workers as managers to avoid paying overtime. If you have not been paid fully or have been misclassified by your employee, our employees are skilled in this area of law.
Gender, Race, Age, and Disability Discrimination Claims
Employees have certain limited protections from discrimination and termination based upon gender, race, age or based upon physical disabilities. If employees are passed over for promotion, paid less than their counterparts, or terminated based upon their gender or race, contact us for a consultation.
Qui Tam and Federal False Claims Act Litigation
If an employee discovers and reports wrongdoing on the part of their employer, they cannot be retaliated against for doing the right thing. Whistleblower or qui tam litigation is one of our focuses. This very particular area of the law requires a commercial litigation attorney with our level of knowledge.
