The employment attorneys at Jordan Law Firm, PC regularly represent clients in a variety of matters arising in the context of all aspects of employment. These matters may involve discriminatory hiring practices, mistreatment or sexual harassment in the workplace, wage disputes, or wrongful termination.
The area of employment law is both broad and complex: it encompasses a number of federal and state statutes, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), the Equal Pay Act (EPA), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. These statutes govern many employment-related issues involving wages, work hours, paid and unpaid leaves, overtime payments, child labor, sexual harassment, or workplace discrimination. Naturally, this area often overlaps with our discrimination practice.
The employment lawyers at Jordan Law Firm believe that all employees should understand and exercise their rights to work in a safe, dignified, professional environment. To help our clients to do so, we will listen to each of them very carefully so that we can understand fully and accurately who our clients are and what situation they are facing. We will take time to explain each given situation thoroughly in the legal context, but in the language that is sufficiently easy to understand, so that our clients can make well-informed decisions as to their legal representation and subsequent courses of action.
Our law firm provides comprehensive legal services in the area of employment at trials in both federal and state courts in South Carolina, as well as in hearings and other proceedings at various federal and state administrative agencies, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission (SHAC), and the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce (SCDEW). We are very sensitive about each employee's needs and concerns, and will take an insightful and proactive approach to safeguard our clients' rights and interests toward their long-term employment objectives.
