Employee Rights

Our firm’s employee rights attorneys are experienced in representing employees and executives like you in employment law and litigation matters. We represent individuals who have not received full and fair compensation for their work performed (such as bonuses, commissions, overtime, or being paid for every hour worked); individuals whose livelihoods are threatened by non-compete and non-solicitation agreements; and employees who have been wrongfully terminated, demoted, or discriminated against because of their age, race, gender, pregnancy, or because they have blown the whistle on inappropriate company activities.

In everything we do, from investigating discrimination claims with the EEOC or litigating unpaid wages claims in state or federal courts under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) or the North Carolina Wage and Hour Act, we dedicate ourselves to obtaining the best possible outcome for our clients.

Maginnis Howard advocates for North Carolina employees at all stages of the legal process. If you require an initial filing with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Department of Labor (DOL), the firm’s employment lawyers can assist you with completing a proper charge of discrimination. Our attorneys also provide representation during EEOC investigations, EEOC mediations, DFEH investigations, and/or DFEH mediations.
