State and federal laws provide workers with numerous rights regarding the employee/employer relationship. But these rights mean little if employees do not understand and proactively enforce them. The Sanford Law Firm has been an advocate for workers — including applicants, current employees and former employees — for more than a decade. Our employment lawyers in Little Rock are creative and practical in helping workers assert their rights and always keep the client’s concerns and desires at the forefront during representation.
Outside the protection of a union, it can be easy for an individual worker to feel intimidated. Employers all too frequently dismiss employee complaints out of hand. Even worse, employees often fear retaliation or blacklisting for voicing concerns. And while most employers are smart enough not to openly engage in such blatantly illegal conduct, the risk is still there. But an experienced attorney can help you articulate your concerns to your employer within the context of your rights under state and federal law. Perhaps more importantly, consulting an attorney puts your employer on notice that any retaliation will be met with swift and decisive legal action.
Small slights can add up over time. Five or ten minutes of uncompensated work or overtime can turn into thousands of dollars lost over the course of a year or longer. And in a difficult economy, many employers have the impression they can demand more from their employees for the same compensation. But as an employee, you have rights. And the Little Rock employment attorneys of the Sanford Law Firm can help you assert those rights through appropriate legal action.
We understand the intricacies of state and federal wage and hour laws and other employment statutes and are on guard for the common tricks employers use to circumvent them:
