Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt LLP Individual Employment

Individual Employment

We represent individuals in workplace disputes—primarily wage & hour violations, employment discrimination, civil rights, and public policy torts. This includes cases filed under the state and federal minimum wage laws, family leave acts, anti-discrimination statutes, and the Washington and U.S. Constitutions.

In the Washington Supreme Court, for example, we have secured employees' rights to overtime for lunch and meal breaks, and job protection for employees who need time off to seek protection from domestic violence.

We've also successfully challenged retaliatory discharge for protected speech and expanded the protections of employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. We represent individual employees in severance negotiations as well as litigation, and assist employees in forming and dissolving employment relationships.
