Employment Law

Protecting You in the Workplace

Have you been fired? Did your workplace refuse to provide you protection and benefits when you needed them most? Whatever challenges or discrimination you’re facing at work, we can help you through it.

We believe that everyone deserves the right to financial security. We stand by and protect that right for our clients. Attorney Ralph Bryant Jr.’s extensive work handling employment law cases in several areas stands on its own for lawyers across the region.

Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Litigation

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 established the EEOC to make sure everyone has the same rights and protections in the workplace. We will NOT let your employer forget it. Whether you’re being discriminated against because of your race, your skin color, your gender, or your sexual orientation, we will stand by you.

No employer is permitted to make any hiring, firing, promoting, or other decisions that will impact your financial well-being based on anything other than your qualifications as a professional. The moment you feel you’re being discriminated against, call us.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Litigation

We are all able. Our team will take this fact to your employer if they overstep their rights and discriminate against you just because you have a disability. The ADA protects all workers from discrimination based on disabilities.

Whether you were born with a disability or a major life event results in you developing a disability, the ADA is your grounds for protection. While we handle workers’ compensation cases, the ADA provides you protections beyond when workers’ comp can. Under the act, your employer must do everything they can to provide you with reasonable accommodations. If they fail you, call us.

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Litigation

Look, we know life-changing events can happen. Whether you’re dealing with a major sickness or injury, FMLA provides you with protection in the workplace. When you need time off beyond what your workplace provides you, this act is your protection against termination and punishment.

Your employer must provide you with reasonable accommodations for extended leave when you need it. Nobody should have to deal with added stress and long-term financial questions when their mental and physical health needs their full attention.

When you come to Attorney Ralph Bryant Jr., your job is to get well while he fights for you.

Retaliatory Discharge

We should all do the right thing when duty calls. Your boss cannot fire you if you file a complaint against a coworker or the company. We want you to feel empowered to speak up when you see something wrong happening at your workplace, and we don’t have time for employers who refuse you that right.

If this happens to you, it falls under several of the above protections against discrimination at work. Your boss must respect your right to speak up against injustices, even if it’s your boss’ actions you are concerned about. If your boss fires you for doing the right thing, call us.

Sexual Harassment 

Everyone deserves to feel safe and comfortable in their own body, especially at work. Sadly, we’ve seen in recent years that some people will never respect the boundaries of others. That’s why we’re here for you to make sure you have power over your own body.

Your coworkers are there to work with you towards the goals of your workplace. Working on a team should be a fulfilling experience, but we must care for our team members. You are powerful, you are respectable, and you are someone we care for. If someone tries to take your power away, call us.

We believe in your right to feel safe, protected, and empowered in the workplace. Attorney Ralph Bryant Jr. is committed to getting you justice and giving your power back. Contact us today and let us fight for you.
