Providing Sound Counsel for 20+ Years
At least 33 percent of your day is spent at your workplace. You deserve to work at a company that recognizes your accomplishments, is respectful of your legal rights, and pays you what you've earned and what you're worth.
Too often, employers are so concerned with their bottom line that they fail to adhere to laws that protect the American worker. In turn, your career and your financial security can suffer today and for years to come. If you are an employee who has been treated unfairly by your employer, contact the Atlanta employment lawyers at Barrett & Farahany as soon as possible to help you secure your job and any compensation that you may be owed.
What are Laws that Protect the Rights of Workers in Georgia?
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
- The Equal Pay Act
- Americans With Disabilities Act
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
There are other federal and state laws that may protect employees in certain industries. Even then, these are only some of the laws that help protect employees in Georgia and throughout the country.
Committed to Providing the Support You Need
Barrett & Farahany has fought for the rights of employees in numerous employment cases from termination for illegal reasons to unpaid overtime. We have helped workers who have been denied employment because of their race, age, gender, religion, national origin, pregnancy, or disability. We have helped female employees who have lost their jobs because they are expecting or have had a baby. We know the impact of illegal treatment at work; it can negatively affect an employee's finances, health, and career, and we are dedicated to protecting employees from this.
We are proud to provide extensive experience in a comprehensive range of employment law matters, such as:
- Executive Compensation
- Discrimination based on race, religion, gender, age, disability, national origin, or pregnancy
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Hostile Work Environment based on race, religion, gender, age, disability, national origin, or pregnancy
- Retaliation based on race, religion, gender, age, disability, national origin, pregnancy, or other reason prohibited by law

We know the hardships you face because of someone else's actions at work and you deserve to be treated equally, fairly and respectfully by your employer. We are on the side of the American worker, and in fact, we achieved the largest verdict in the nation in favor of a plaintiff who was denied rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
