Labor and Employment

JOMARRON | LOPEZ understands the complexities involved in the employer-employee relationship.  For example, under certain circumstances, an employee has a right to be paid at least the statutory minimum wage and paid time and a half for every hour worked over forty hours.  Moreover, an employer must keep records of all the hours worked by employees.  Additionally, employers are prohibited from taking retaliatory measures against employees who assert their employment rights (like filing a claim with the EEOC or a lawsuit to enforce employment laws).  Sexual harassment is also an important concern for employers, who should implement policies to prevent and address harassment in the workplace. These are just some of the issues that arise in the workplace that both an employer and an employee should seek competent legal representation to determine their rights and obligations.
