The Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic is Not an Excuse for Others to Violate Your Rights
Have you been terminated, furloughed, or denied pay or benefits to which you were entitled during the time following the outbreak of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic? If so, your rights my have been violated and the assistance of qualified legal counsel may be needed to defend those rights to the fullest.
Discrimination and other illegal practices by employers did not suddenly become acceptable or legal due to this crisis. Your employer remains accountable for compliance with the laws that existed at the time when they took, or failed to take, actions that impact your employment.
Likewise, new laws were passed in direct response to the COVID-19 Crisis that were intended to provide relief to workers through their employers. If your employer benefited from federal, state, or local COVID-19 relief legislation, but failed to fulfill its obligations to you under those laws, you deserve to be made whole.
Additionally, your employer may have violated your rights by wrongfully abandoning or ignoring an important internal matter you brought to their attention either before or during the outbreak of the pandemic, such as: request(s) for reasonable accommodations for disabilities under the ADA, required review of disciplinary actions, resolution of certain disputes with management/coworker(s), or the processing of a workers compensation claim.
If you believe your employer or former employer has denied you the status, benefits, or pay you deserve, whether before, during, or in the wake of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic, contact us for help sorting through your legal options.
