Helping Government Workers Protect Their Rights

For employees who work for cities, towns, municipalities or other government entities, acts of wrongdoing by employers often put the employees in a difficult place. They can remain quiet about the incident and continue to experience problems each day on the job, or they can report the matter and hope that things are addressed by those who have control over such issues. Often, even when it is reported, nothing happens.

At The Law Offices of Laura J. Farris, we help mistreated workers determine the best way to proceed in their unique cases against employers' illegal actions. We advise workers and help them file claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblowing matters and other employment law violations in the workplace. Many people think that they must first file a claim with a state or federal employment agency before speaking with a lawyer. This is not true.

Representing Government Employees In Adverse Employment Actions

Filing complaints with the government without an attorney can be done by going straight to the government agency that would process your case, but several agencies could be involved at the state and federal levels, depending on your case.

You should not have to wait for backlogged government agencies to take several months to get to your case. Employment law violations deserve quick response. Filing a complaint without informed legal representation can delay the process unnecessarily. We help with a number of different issues for government employees, including:

  • Representing workers in Skelly hearings and other hearings connected to the case
  • Protecting the claims of workers in negotiations and mediations
  • Litigating cases for government employees in the courtroom

It is important to consult with an experienced workers' rights attorney before seeking assistance from a government entity. A knowledgeable and resourceful attorney can help you understand your rights, file a complaint properly and move your case forward efficiently. Government employment agencies are overburdened and backlogged with filings. We work with the agencies on a daily basis, and our professional service puts your needs and diligent case preparation first.
