Our practice encompasses all areas of employment law, from the most basic to complex litigation matters. We are a full-service employment law firm offering everything from single-session reviews of contracts to representation in extensive lawsuits in state and federal courts. SLS represents clients in Texas and across the United States. We offer in-depth counsel and representation in the following employment law areas:
- Wage claims
- Overtime claims
- Wrongful termination claims
- Whistleblower lawsuits, including exercising the Qui Tam provision of the Federal Civil False Claims Act
- Discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, disability, religion, or pregnancy
- Sexual harassment, including opposite sex or same-sex harassment on the job from supervisors or coworkers, and the complaint and grievance procedures for claims of sexual harassment, such as filing complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
- Severance packages, including lump-sum payments and COBRA and ERISA claims involving such issues as long-term disability coverage
- Executive compensation, including salary, bonus, benefits, stock options and deferred compensation
In every employment law case, we apply our experience, knowledge and skills to achieve timely, satisfactory resolutions. We negotiate with employers, file administrative claims, and undertake lawsuits with the goal of bringing about justice, reform, and compensation for wronged employees.
Employment issues are extremely important in most people’s lives. Getting a job, keeping a job, getting a promotion, or negotiating a severance or retirement package are all significant events for every employee. Losing a job is a very stressful occurrence — with ripple effects impacting all facets of a person’s life. Your employment situation directly affects your family, your living situation, and your future plans — including the range of opportunities available to your children.
In addition to handling individual claims, the employment lawyers at SLS also represent groups of people in collective and class actions. Typically, if one employee in a particular type of job has his or her overtime pay rights violated, it affects more than just the single employee. We have handled collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) with national reach and have helped hundreds of employees collect hundreds of thousands of dollars.
