Cobb County Employment Law Firm, Barrett & Farahany, LLP
In Cobb County, many employers feel that federal employment laws do not pertain to their businesses. Or, they simply disregard these laws in order to protect their bottom lines.

We’ve helped secure compensation for Cobb County workers who were unpaid for their overtime hours, protected workers against race and sex discrimination, and ensured employees received the medical leave to which they were entitled.
