We Can Help With Your Employment Law Issue

Most people spend much of their adult life at work. When something isn't right at work, the consequences for an employee can be severe. You can lose income through wage theft or overtime being denied or improperly calculated. Your career can come to a halt, as promotions and choice assignments pass you by. It can even make you physically and emotionally ill if you experience harassment or retaliation.

At Melehy & Associates LLC, our trial lawyers know how to help with aggressive and experienced representation for a broad range of employment law issues. With many years of experience working with these cases, we have the knowledge of federal, state and Washington, D.C., laws and regulations that allow us to build a strong case for you and protect your rights.

Talk To Us To Understand Your Rights

Some employers have become embolden by decades of anti-worker rhetoric. Many companies fail to understand their duties to their employees and some simply do not care. The law provides for a wide range of protection and cities like Washington, D.C., and federal employees have additional protections. Our attorneys can discuss your situation and let you know what you need to do to bring a successful employment action.

We have experience handling employees who have been subject to:

  • Wage theft
  • Workplace discrimination
  • Employer retaliation
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful termination

Employment Law Matters Have Short Deadlines

Employment law is often quite technical. You must complete certain steps in a particular order, or risk losing your claim. You may have to act within a short time period of the illegal conduct and you may have to notify your employer or an agency like the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Careful record-keeping is also important. Because of the nature of these claims, your only evidence may be notes you have made or emails or other communications you have kept. Our attorneys can help you learn the type of evidence or documents that are useful and what you can do to help your case.

We have worked on numerous cases involving a variety of employment law situations or implicating specific federal and state employment laws, including:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Breach of employment contracts
  • Discrimination
  • Equal Pay Act
  • False Claims Act (fraud on the government)
  • Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)
  • Noncompete agreements and restrictive covenants
  • Retaliation
  • Severance
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Whistleblower litigation
  • Wrongful termination
