Is Your Employee Claiming Mistreatment?
Employees frequently attempt to thrust their employers into lawsuits by claiming a violation of their workplace rights. Some will claim failure to compensate for all the hours they work have worked, although overtime was never approved or being fired for a discriminatory reason when they were fired for continuously poor job performance. Facing a complaint from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) on your own can seem overwhelming.
Without guidance from a knowledgeable employment law attorney, you may not be able to defend your rights as an employer successfully. When you need robust and steadfast representation, turn to the team at Carrier & Allison Law Group, P.C. Our attorneys can answer your questions and provide the road map you need to get through myriad employee-related challenges. We understand how frustrating and difficult it can be to stand up to a disgruntled employee on your own.
