Alpharetta Employment and Labor Law Attorney

Georgia lawyer advocates for workers in disputes with employers

Employment laws are enacted to protect workers against unfair treatment on the job. This area of the law is very complex due to the number of federal, state and local statutes, administrative rulings and case law precedents that affect the employer-employee relationship. To enforce your rights effectively, you need a seasoned employment lawyer on your side when you have a legal concern. At The Reddy Law Firm, P.C. in Alpharetta, Attorney K.P. Reddy draws on more than 30 years of legal experience to support Georgia clients who have been victimized by discrimination, a wrongful termination or some other unlawful action.

Employment discrimination, harassment and workplace investigations

Workplace discrimination due to race, sex, age, disability, national origin or membership in another protected class is illegal. One form of discrimination is quid pro quo sexual harassment, which occurs when a manager or someone else in a superior workplace position exploits their authority to pressure a lower-ranking employee into a sexual relationship. You can also bring a discrimination claim if you have been subjected to a hostile work environment due to your sex or another legally protected personal characteristic. As an accomplished discrimination lawyer, K.P. Reddy pursues justice for victims of mistreatment in hiring decisions, promotions, salary decisions and dismissals. If you have experienced bias on the job, he will conduct a meticulous investigation to construct the strongest possible case for compensation from those who violated your rights. 

Wrongful termination 

While employers have wide berth on when to fire an employee, there are certain dismissals that violate the law. If you believe your firing was due to discrimination, retaliation for reporting misconduct or choosing to take family or medical leave, you might be able to collect compensation in a wrongful termination claim. Victims of contractual violations could also be eligible for relief. K.P. can analyze the circumstances related to your firing and advocate for a proper remedy if your legal or contractual rights were violated. 

Wage and hour disputes

Wage and hour laws are created to ensure that eligible employees receive all of the pay that they are entitled to. A worker’s pay must comply with the minimum wage law and that might include time-and-a-half for overtime. When a dispute exists over one of these issues or the accurate recording of hours, our firm advises clients on what the law requires. If you have not received the wages you’re owed, K.P. will fight for a full recovery.  

Employee benefits and compensation

We offer strategic guidance to executives and other employees during negotiations over compensation and benefits packages. Our background in this field helps clients understand what they are worth in the marketplace and we provide strategic guidance designed to secure the most favorable terms possible. You can rely on us to review an already prepared contract to ensure that it is in your interests and does not violate your rights. If you are involved in a dispute with your employer over contracted compensation or benefits, we will work to resolve the issue in accord with the agreement and applicable laws. 

Deadlines to take action apply

You don’t have time to hesitate if you believe your employment rights have been violated. Some very strict deadlines apply in most cases, so waiting to call an attorney could prevent you from obtaining the relief you deserve. Along with discrimination, wrongful termination, wage and contract cases, we offer legal counsel for the following types of claims:

  • Whistleblower retaliation 
  • Whistleblower/False Claims Act litigation
  • Unfair labor practices
  • Employment class actions
  • Severance disputes

Once we learn about your issue, K.P. Reddy will advise you about the pertinent deadlines and the anticipated timeframe for your case.
