Employment And Labor Law

For almost all of us, our workplace is extremely important. We depend on our jobs to make ends meet and prepare for the future. It is important to have a working environment that is equitable and free from discrimination or other issues.

At Cantafio Hammond, our Denver, Colorado, attorneys represent employees in a wide range of employment law matters. Our priority is to protect your rights in the workplace and help you retain a safe and reasonable working environment.

Employment Law

We protect employee rights in legal claims involving:

  • Discrimination: Firing, refusing to hire, limiting advancement and other unequal treatment on the account of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability and other factors are prohibited. If you have been discriminated against by your employer, we can protect your rights.
  • Wage and hour violations: In far too many cases, employers fail to pay adequate wages, make timely payments and appropriately pay for overtime wages. Often, an employer will incorrectly classify employees as exempt for tax purposes so it can avoid paying the overtime premium that its employees deserve.
  • Retaliation: It is illegal for employers to treat employees any differently, even employees who have "blown the whistle" on them, informing the authorities about illegal or questionable behavior. Too often, employees who assert their rights in the workplace get fired or demoted. If this has happened to you, we can help.
  • Sexual harassment: When a superior or co-worker offers benefits or advancement in return for sexual acts or creates an intimidating environment through lurid speech and unwelcome touching or other inappropriate sexual behavior, it is sexual harassment and it is illegal.

Labor Law

We also handle a wide range of labor law matters, as well, including:

  • Union formation
  • Union disputes
  • Executive compensation
  • Severance packages
  • Noncompete and other contractual clauses
  • Dispute resolution
