“I wish I had met with an attorney before I got fired!”
“I don’t want to sue my employer, I just want help!”
“I can’t take on the company, it’s just too big!”

Sound familiar?

DON’T WAIT FOR THE PINK SLIP!  Before you are written up, fired, laid off, wrongfully terminated, demoted, denied a promotion or subjected to a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) call Banik & Renner regarding your employment law matters.  If you feel that things aren’t right at work, chances are, you are right.

Contact Banik & Renner if you are facing any of the following employment law issues:

  • Discrimination based on age (ADEA), sex and pregnancy (Title VII), the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), disability (ADA)
  • Co-worker disputes
  • The bully boss
  • False allegations
  • Unfair discipline
  • Allegations of  improper use of your employer’s internet or email or use of social media
  • Not being properly accommodated for your mental or physical disability, including serious illnesses
  • Sexual harassment
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Gender based discrimination
  • Hostile environment or retaliation resulting from pushing back or reporting any of these issues or supporting a co-worker or participating in an investigation involving any of these issues.
  • Concerns regarding any employment related documents like employment contracts, non-compete agreements, separation agreements, write-ups and performance improvement plans. 
  • If you are written up, given a verbal counseling, a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) or even if you have been fired, you can push back!  These problems frequently result from the misrepresentations of a supervisor or co-worker who may be the cause of the problem and your employer lacks the facts.  Banik & Renner can assist you with your employment law issues by helping you state your side of the story. 
  • Consult with Banik & Renner BEFORE you file a Charge of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and IMMEDIATELY upon receipt of a Notice of Right to Sue.
  • Consult with Banik & Renner BEFORE you sign any document such as an offer letter, an engagement letter, a letter of intent, a non-compete agreement, a severance agreement or separation agreement.  We will help assure that you understand the document you are signing or help you renegotiate the terms. Understanding what your signature means is important because these are legally binding documents than can control your employment, even after you are no longer employed. We may be able to negotiate more favorable terms to agreements, suggest changes that protect you, obtain severance or increase the severance offered depending on the circumstances.
We can help address employment issues before the employer/employee relationship is so damaged that it is destroyed.

Work is an integral part of everyone’s life.  A stressful work environment that results from harassment, discrimination or illegal employment practices has a negative effect on every aspect of life at work and at home.  It can make the workplace intolerable and your home life a disaster.

We represent individuals employed by local businesses as well as the largest national and international corporations. Our clients are executives, professionals, managers, hourly employees, contract workers, part-time employees and temps.

We often hear from individuals that they avoided contacting an attorney because they “did not want to sue the company”. Obviously, no one wants to go to court if they can achieve their goals in a less contentious way.  At Banik and Renner we are adept at negotiation, mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods.  However, if filing suit is the only option, we will aggressively advocate for you in the courtroom.

Knowledge is power.  Know what the law provides for or what benefits you are entitled to by speaking with the employment discrimination lawyers at Banik & Renner.
