Employment Claims
Specializing in employment claims
We take employment cases very seriously. If you have had your employment wrongfully terminated for reasons including whistle blowing, refusing to commit illegal acts, or another reason that violates your employment contract; if you have been discriminated against for your race, gender, age, national origin, religious affiliation, disability, or pregnancy; if you have not been paid for your work or not been paid overtime; or if you have been sexually harassed, we will represent you fearlessly. We understand that the deck is usually stacked against the employee, and we work tirelessly to find solutions to even the most challenging cases.

We are here to guide you through the administrative process of filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Whether you bring your case in a state or federal court, we understand the many intricacies of employment laws and statutes. Big employers routinely hire big defense firms, but we have consistently been successful against these firms in winning judgments—and justice—for our clients.

"Mike Scanes is the attorney other attorneys go to when there’s trouble or the case is headed to trial. He has the two attributes all great trial lawyers must have: good instincts and fearlessness in the courtroom. As an attorney, Mike is the lawyer I would turn to if I were in trouble and needed a lawyer."
