Meet Sgt. Charlotte Djossou, the whistleblower.
The employment relationship is one of the most important relationships in your life. If you experience issues in the workplace, you may need the counsel of an experienced employment attorney to help you reach a resolution.
For more than 25 years, the attorneys at the law firm of Bernabei & Kabat, PLLC, have represented employees throughout the United States, including Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania and New York in legal issues involving the workplace, including:
- Employment issues: We represent employees in all aspects of the employment relationship, from negotiating and drafting employment contracts to troubleshooting when problems arise.
- Sexual harassment: Every person has the right to be free of sexual harassment in the workplace.
- Whistleblowers: Before you blow the whistle, talk to an experienced attorney to understand your rights and protections.
- Civil rights: We represent individuals in civil rights matters, including free speech and equal protection violations.
Many people put off talking to a lawyer about their legal concerns, hoping the problem will go away. Unfortunately, the problem could get worse. You could end up facing job termination. The sooner you talk to an attorney about your employment issue, the more options you will have in seeking a resolution and the better able you will be to document your position.
Our lawyers help you navigate the legal process. Most cases end with a resolution, including financial compensation, but they only settle when the employer knows that you and your lawyer are ready to take the case to trial.
