We provide the highest caliber litigation services and legal counsel, with vast experience in cases under federal and state employment discrimination and wage and hour laws. We take great pride in our original approach to protecting and promoting employee rights. At The Blankenship Law Firm, we maintain a thriving Employment Law practice.
Employment Law embodies a complex network of laws that regulate how employers must deal with employees, former employees, and employment applicants. Our Employment Law team has significant experience in interpreting and understanding state and federal statutes and case law in areas such as employment discrimination, affirmative action, sexual harassment, employee benefits, whistleblower litigation, wrongful discharge, and employment contracts. Although we primarily represent employees, we have had great success assisting employers with complex matters, including assisting them in maintaining policies and procedures that help prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace. We are committed to helping maintain a workplace that is free from discrimination, and pays employees what they earn under the law.
The central area of our practice is representing individuals in all areas of employment law, with specific concentration on sexual harassment, racial harassment, employment discrimination on the basis of race, age, sex, disability, religion, national origin, and pregnancy, retaliation, and failure to pay wages and overtime.
