Employment

Your work is a big part of who you are. You take pride in a job well done and the dignity of a paycheck to provide for yourself and your loved ones. When an employer takes that away—through discrimination, harassment, unpaid wages, or retaliation—the harm can be as great as a physical injury, if not worse.

Taking on an employer who has wronged you can seem like a daunting and intimidating challenge. Whether you’ve been unlawfully terminated for raising safety concerns, passed over for promotion for discriminatory reasons, denied benefits because you were misclassified as an independent contractor, or suffered some other mistreatment in the workplace, you need a skilled attorney by your side.

We have successfully represented individuals, groups, military personnel, and large classes of workers in a variety of employment matters in state and federal court, arbitration, and before administrative agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). These include actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Title VII, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERA), and state wage and hour  and anti-discrimination and laws like the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD).

If you think that your rights as a worker have been—or are being—violated, you may want to speak with a lawyer. BCG has the knowledge, experience, resources, and commitment to guide our clients through even the most complex employment cases, protect their rights, and hold employers accountable.
