Employment & Labor Law

Both state and federal law make it illegal for employers to discriminate in various aspects of employment, including hiring, promotion, job assignment, wrongful termination, compensation, and different forms of harassment.

Wrongful termination includes, but is not limited to, violation of public policy, discrimination, harassment, and breach of contract

The firm is dedicated to ensuring equal rights for all and primarily represents employees in work-related disputes.  We also believe it is important to ensure harmony in the work place and to promote long-standing, productive employer-employee relationships.  As such, the firm also does assist ethical employers in creating employee handbooks and policies to ensure that they comply with applicable law.

We represent employees who have experienced discrimination based on:

  • Age
  • Mental/Physical disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Race
  • Gender
  • National origin
  • Medical leave
  • Pregnancy
  • Religion

In addition to the firm’s comprehensive Employment Law representation, the Law Offices of Kathleen Rager have extensive experience representing clients in a full range of labor law matters, including wage and hour claims, whistleblowing claims and terminations in violation of public policy.

Federal and state statutes comprise the body of these employment discrimination laws, although the U.S. Constitution and various state constitutions also provide measures of protection against bias in employment. If you feel that you have been the victim of discrimination, you should know your legal rights and speak with us.
