Fighting to Protect the Rights of Workers Like You

At least 33 percent of your day is spent at your workplace. You deserve to work at a company that recognizes your accomplishments, is respectful of your legal rights, and pays you what you've earned and what you're worth.

Too often, employers are so concerned with their bottom line and fail to adhere to laws that protect the American worker. In turn, your career and your financial security can suffer today and for years to come. If you are an employee who has been treated unfairly by your employer, contact the Atlanta employment lawyers at Barrett & Farahany, LLP as soon as possible to help you secure your job and any compensation you may be owed.

There are a number of federal employment laws that protect employees in Georgia and around the U.S. These include, but are not limited to:

- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
- Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938
- The Equal Pay Act
- Americans With Disabilities Act
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

In addition, there are other federal and state laws that may protect employees in certain industries.

Barrett & Farahany, LLP has fought for the rights of employees in numerous employment cases from termination for illegal reasons to unpaid overtime. We have helped workers who have been denied employment because of their race, age, gender, religion, national origin, pregnancy, or disability. We have helped female employees who have lost their jobs because they are expecting or have had a baby. We know the impact of illegal treatment at work; it can negatively affect an employee's finances, health, and career, and we are dedicated to protecting employees from this.

From unlawful termination suits to discrimination claims to compensation cases, our employment lawyers in Atlanta have successfully fought to protect the rights of Georgia workers. We know the hardships you face because of someone else's actions at work and you deserve to be treated equally, fairly and respectfully by your employer. We are on the side of the American worker, and in fact, we achieved the largest verdict in the nation in favor of a plaintiff who was denied rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
