EMPLOYMENT LAW

The firm represents government agencies and individuals in Employment matters. Governmental investigations range throughout all areas of the government. Individual claims are also reviewed and prosecuted by the Firm. We investigate, defend and prosecute claims involving Age, Disability, Equal Pay, National Origin, Pregnancy, Race, Religion, Sex and or Sexual Harassment.

We believe that workers are best protected when employers, employees and the government work together to protect wages, benefits, pensions,
safety and health. Attorneys at Bynum & Jenkins, are intimate with the statutes and regulations administered by the Department of
Labor and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that affect businesses and workers.

We handle cases involving the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), which prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin;
  • the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA), which protects men and women who perform substantially equal work in the same establishment from sex-based wage discrimination;
  • the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), which protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older;
  • Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), which prohibit employment discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in the private sector, and in state and local governments;
  • Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which prohibit discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities who work in the federal government;
  • and the Civil Rights Act of 1991, which, among other things, provides monetary damages in cases of intentional employment discrimination.
