Together, the trial lawyers at NH Employee Rights Group have decades of experience in federal and state court, vindicating employee rights in discrimination, retaliation, medical leave violation, failure to accommodate, and wage and hour cases.
We have obtained very substantial verdicts and settlements for our clients over the years, earning our reputation as formidable trial lawyers and trusted advisors — all the while putting our clients first. We take that commitment seriously, which is why our clients consistently rate us high in overall satisfaction, communication and responsiveness and regularly recommend us to friends and family.
Part of our commitment to our clients involves assembling the best team for the case. We work closely with doctors, private investigators, and industry experts, leaving no stone unturned. Practice makes perfect, and we practice our cases before they go to trial, on mock juries and focus groups, to see how real people react and adjust our strategy accordingly.
Most of our clients cannot afford to pay an hourly rate for legal representation, which is why we offer our services on a contingent fee basis. In other words, no fee unless we win.
Federal and state laws protect employees from certain types of discrimination and abusive employment practices, but the laws are complex and there are many pitfalls along the way.
As the plaintiff, you bear the burden to prove you are eligible for the protections of the employment laws. Our New Hampshire employment attorneys know which laws apply and how to wield them. For example, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion; the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination based on disability or perceived disability and re-quires employers to make reasonable accommodations for qualified employees; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits discrimination based on age; the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, an offshoot of Title VII, prohibits discrimination based on pregnancy and the need for maternity leave; the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on military service; the Family Medical Leave Act protects employees who need time off work for a serious health condition or to care for an immediate family member with one; and the False Claims Act protects whistleblowers who report unlawful or unsafe practices at work. Whenever possible, we invoke these laws along with New Hampshire’s Law Against Discrimination and Whistleblower Protection Act.
Also as the plaintiff, you bear the burden to prove you have cleared the procedural hurdles necessary to get to court. For example, many of the laws cited above require employees to file complaints with administrative agencies, like the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or New Hampshire’s Commission for Human Rights, within a certain amount of time or forfeit meaningful relief in court. Some employers insist, as a condition of employment, that employees waive their right to go to court in favor of private arbitration, which has its own set of procedural hurdles. The New Hampshire employment lawyers at NH Employee Rights Group know how to navigate these hurdles to ensure that your voice is heard.Contact Us for a Consultation
