Labor & Employment Claims

If you have found yourself in an employment situation that you feel is unfair or discriminatory, it’s important to understand your rights. The attorneys at Burke Harvey have the experience and understanding of employment law to guide you in your best option for resolving the dispute.

Below are a few of the more common employer situations. However, we understand that each situation is different. Please feel free to contact us with your questions or for a free consultation.


Employment discrimination happens when an individual is treated unfavorably as a result of a characteristic that is unrelated to the performance of a job, such as race, gender, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

The Federal Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws are designed to protect employees from unfair discrimination and include the provisions for the Americans with Disabilities Act, Equal Pay Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act and more.

If you feel you have experienced employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, as a qualified individual with a disability or are not being paid equal pay for equal work, you may have a case for discrimination.

The EEO laws are extensive and the procedures by which a claim of discrimination is processed can be demanding. Give us a call or click on the Live Chat button below to speak to an attorney about your case now.


Laws have been established to provide certain protections for a particular situation such as the Americans with Disability Act, Family Medical Leave Act or the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. Understanding your rights under the law is important to making the best decisions for you and your family. You don’t have to go through the process alone. The team at Burke Harvey has helped many individuals find resolution and restitution.


In certain situations, a company executive may be entitled to severance plan benefits such as separation agreement benefits. This is not necessarily dependent on the company offering such benefits at their own discretion.

There are many factors that would determine eligibility to make and pursue a claim for executive severance. A simple call to Burke Harvey can help you determine if you have a case.
