Defending the Rights of Individuals Against Employer Misconduct

At Edwards Kirby, we represent those who have been mistreated by their employer. In addition to the citizen rights protected by the U.S. constitution, there are both state and federal laws that protect Americans from prejudice, discrimination, retaliation, and harassment in the workplace.

Our employment law attorneys help hold employers accountable when they deny individuals these rights. We stand up for employees who have witnessed fraud by an employer, experienced discrimination or harassment in the workplace, or been retaliated against for speaking out. Edwards Kirby is committed to protecting those who have experienced abuses of power in the workplace.

Learn about your rights as an employee and how an Edwards Kirby employment law attorney can help by calling (919) 897-7211.

Types of Unlawful Employment Practices

Under federal and state law, employees have a right to work in an environment free from discriminatory treatment, unlawful pay practices, or fear of retaliation. Our Raleigh employment law attorneys are committed to upholding these rights to the fullest extent. We expose violations of workers’ rights and help wronged employees rebuild and recover.

Some common unlawful employment practices include:

  • Sexual Harassment: A work environment where inappropriate sexual behavior pervades, including physical and verbal sexual harassment, unwanted sexual advances, and a quid pro quo system of sexual favors
  • Fraud and Whistleblower Retaliation: Misuse of funds by employers and retaliating against employees who assert their right to speak out against it, often through termination or unfair terms and conditions of employment.
  • Employment Discrimination: Discriminating against employees in hiring, firing, pay, or other terms and conditions of employment based on gender, race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion, or sexual orientation.
