For Employees/Former Employees
If you are an employee who has faced discrimination in the workplace (based on race/ethnicity/national origin, sex/gender, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity), The Law Office of Shawn Patrick O’Connor & Associates will ensure that your rights under state and/or federal law are protected and that you receive the compensation/other relief to which you are entitled. If your rights have been violated with regards to the Family Medical Leave Act or military service, if you have been subject to sexual harassment in the workplace, if you have been the victim of retaliation or if you have not been properly paid your wages/salary, the overtime to which you are legally entitled, or the benefits that you have been promised or if you were improperly classified as an “independent contractor” by your employer, please contact us so that we can ensure that you rights are fully enforced.
If you are an employer who must defend yourself against a lawsuit or a threatened lawsuit by a current or former employee, The Law Office of Shawn Patrick O’Connor & Associates stands ready to provide you with the most rigorous possible defense.

Finally, our firm can help ensure that your company is and remains in compliance with all pertinent federal, state, and local statutes.
