Houston Employment Lawyers
Unlawful labor practices appear in many forms and in all areas of employment. Workers who fall victim to this unfair treatment often don’t know the rights they have as an employee. In addition, they may be discouraged from speaking out for fear of retaliation from their employer.
The job of employment lawyers is to protect the rights of workers and address both federal and state violations of employment law. Here at Reich & Binstock, we work to ensure that all employees are treated in a fair and safe manner and that employers are in compliance to all laws pertaining to the workplace.
