Memphis Tennessee Noncompete Agreements Lawyer

Although not every employment situation you encounter requires the hiring of an attorney, many do. There are federal, state and in some instances, local laws that protect your employment rights. In addition to knowing these laws, the attorneys who handle employment disputes have the experience to evaluate your claim and advise you as to the best way to resolve your situation. Your employer will be advised by an attorney who handles these types of cases every day. If you try to handle your case on your own, you could be at a real disadvantage.

The following are some warning signs that you need to discuss your case with an attorney:

  • You have been involuntarily released from your job and you are concerned about whether your termination or lay-off was legal;
  • You feel that you are being harassed on your job;
  • Your employer is asking you to engage in some that may be illegal;
  • You have filed a claim for worker's compensation, served on a jury or responded to a subpoena and now your employer is taking some adverse action against you;
  • You have been laid off and your employer has given you a severance offer with a "Release of Claims";
  • You do not clearly understand your rights or are unsure of the proper action to take after your termination;
  • Your employer is demanding that you and/or your coworkers work "off-the-clock" either at the beginning or end of your shift;
  • Your employer is not paying you time and one-half for your overtime hours worked;
  • You want to file a lawsuit in state or federal court;
  • You know of other employees like you who have suffered from the same type of conduct; and
  • You are dissatisfied with a governmental agency's (such as the EEOC) investigation of your complaint.

If you delay contacting an attorney, you will not know what you may be able to do to prevent your situation from worsening and you may not properly document events as they occur. Additionally, any claim you may have is probably governed by a statute of limitations. This statute may lapse without you taking any action. This will result in your claim being lost forever.

Remember, until you consult with a lawyer and in many cases sign a retainer agreement, you have not hired a lawyer to represent you.
