Skilled Attorneys Handle Arkansas Employment Law Disputes
Little Rock lawyers advise on discrimination and termination claims
Enforcing your legal rights against an employer can be a complex and intimidating process, requiring skilled and experienced counsel. The knowledgeable attorneys of McMath Woods P.A. have a detailed understanding of federal and Arkansas employment law. From our office in Little Rock, we advocate for workers in a full range of cases including those relating to discrimination, unpaid wages, and wrongful termination. Since 1953, our firm has sought justice for employees subjected to illegal treatment and helped them obtain appropriate remedies for the harm done to them.
Law firm delivers strong support for workers in federal and state matters
Our dedicated attorneys represent Arkansas workers in litigation and administrative matters involving allegations including:
- Discrimination — The firm’s Little Rock discrimination lawyers advocate on behalf of individuals who have been treated unfairly due to their race, religion, age or other protected characteristics.
- Sexual harassment — If you have been subjected to offensive behavior of a sexual nature or you have been pressured by a superior’s sexual advances, we can pursue appropriate relief for your situation.
- Family Medical Leave Act — This act entitles covered employees (based on company size and length of time worked) to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected time off for childbirth or other family medical situations. Our lawyers assist employees whose legal rights are being denied.
- Wage and hour claims — Strict rules exist regarding the prompt payment of wages and overtime. We can initiate an action to help you obtain the pay that you have earned and are entitled to.
We represent most clients on a contingency basis, so you can get the advice you need in a prompt manner.
Effective assistance for victims of unlawful firings
Most Arkansas workers are at-will employees. This means that they can be fired for nearly any reason or no reason at all. However, some dismissals are based in impermissible grounds. For example, race, religion or other legally specified factors cannot be the basis for termination. Likewise, a worker cannot be fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim or reporting employer misconduct. If you know or suspect that you lost your job for an unlawful reason, our attorneys will review your matter and advise you of your legal options.
Knowledgeable counselors litigate employment contract claims
Individuals whose work is governed by an employment contract are legally entitled to the benefits included within the agreement. We review documents and provide prompt, clear advice about the rights and obligations of each party. Our firm will not let employers evade their responsibilities; we will take quick action to enforce your rights under the terms of your contract.
