Employment Law

At AadVantage Legal Services, we maintain a thriving employment law practice. Employment law embodies a complex network of laws that regulate how employers must deal with employees, former employees, and employment applicants.

What reason must an employer have before an employee is fired?

Generally, an employer may fire an employee for any reason. There are some exceptions: an employer cannot fire an employee because of that employee's race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or age, or because that employee reported a violation of law committed by the employer. There are other exceptions to the general rule, and you should contact us to determine if your situation comes under one of these exceptions.

Am I entitled to overtime if I work more than forty hours in a week?

The rules regarding the employees who are entitled to receive overtime pay-one and one-half times their ordinary rate of pay, for any time worked over forty hours in one week-have undergone substantial changes recently. If you have questions about your eligibility for overtime, contact us for a review of your situation.
