Virginia Beach Employee Rights Lawyers
Employment law encompasses a broad range of categories. At its core, employment law prohibits an employer from intruding on the “rights” of employees. Employee rights are derived from federal law, state law, public policy and employment agreements. These rights protect employees from wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation and other adverse actions.
Our labor and employment law firm represents and advises executive, professional, and government employees through complex investigations and other workplace issues throughout Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and the greater Eastern Virginia area. We help employees avoid noncompete agreements under Virginia law and obtain compensation based on an employment or compensation agreement. We pursue civil rights cases for employees through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), where we have historically obtained successful decisions and settlements for our clients. We also represent federal employees facing reprisal, unjust termination, unlawful discrimination, or a complex investigation. Whatever unique difficulties your matter entails, we are prepared listen, brainstorm solutions with you, and provide you quality legal representation.
