Ethnic & Racial Discrimination
Ethnic and/or racial discrimination occurs when an employer or fellow employee treats a colleague unfairly due to her or his race or ethnicity. Not only is this behavior illegal, it’s morally reprehensible. If someone at work is treating you poorly due to your race or national origin, call us immediately.
It is a national disgrace that women continue to earn less — in some cases, far less — than their male coworkers. Despite decades of advocacy and a shift in public perceptions, gender discrimination still exists in American workplaces. Don’t be a victim — schedule your appointment today.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
As its name suggests, the Fair Labor Standards Act was designed to ensure that employers were providing their employees with a very basic set of protections. Issues involving minimum wage, overtime pay, child labor and record-keeping are all governed by the FLSA. Learn more by contacting an employment lawyer at Quinn, Connor, Weaver, Davies & Rouco LLP.
Blowing the Whistle
If you see something that may be illegal, or corrupt — it makes sense to notify someone in a position of authority. Unfortunately, some who speak out against. Don’t be afraid to speak out. The experienced team at Quinn, Connor, Weaver, Davies & Rouco LLP has your back.
Relief for Workplace Injuries
A workplace injury can lead to significant consequences for you and your family. In addition to being strapped with substantial medical bills, you may also find yourself struggling with a lengthy recovery and the prospect of lost wages. Protect your future by contacting Quinn, Connor, Weaver, Davies & Rouco LLP.
Enforcing Promises of Benefits
All too often an employer will promise a benefit-disability insurance or a pension-and then fails to live up to the promise. Often it is not the employer that causes the problem instead, it is the insurance company that promised to pay if you became disabled. When that promise is broken, the attorneys at Quinn Connor can help.
Claims for employee benefits are almost always covered by a law called ERISA. ERISA was meant to protect employees, but all too often it seems like it just gets in the way. Quinn Connor lawyers are uniquely situated to help you obtain benefits that were denied to you, whether disability income or health insurance.
