Established Atlanta Employment Law Attorneys Protecting the Rights of Georgia Workers
Drawing upon nearly 50 years of combined experience to serve clients in Georgia and nationwide
Our firm, Billips & Benjamin LLP, handles employment and labor cases exclusively. We dedicate all of our time, resources and experience to represent hard-working people, like you, who keep this nation going, day in and day out. With almost 50 years of combined experience advocating for employees, our lawyers, well versed in the intricacies of employment rights and contract law, can provide you with effective counsel to recover the wages you are owed and improve your workplace conditions.
Recovering payment for violations of overtime, wage and hour laws
If after all your hard work, your paycheck is smaller than it should be, you need to take action immediately. Generally, you are subject to a two-year statute of limitations to recover back pay -- three years if your employer wilfully violated overtime, wage and hour laws.
Our attorneys offer advice and action when you come to us with concerns about the following:
- The wages you earned -- As an employee, you are entitled to the wages you have earned. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that protects and guarantees your rights to overtime pay and at least minimum wages.
- The wages you deserve -- An employer may attempt to take advantage of employees by refusing to pay them what the law requires. Employers also may make legitimate mistakes because they do not understand the law. However, whether withholding your wages was deliberate or accidental, your employer has a responsibility to compensate you appropriately for your hard work.
- Your right to sue -- Billips & Benjamin is devoted to getting you what you deserve as an employee. And, if you choose to sue an employer who has willfully broken the law or claims ignorance of the law, we devote all our energies to getting you the maximum settlement or verdict possible.
Resolving complex labor and employment law issues
Our lawyers take on a wide range of labor and employment law cases. We help executives enforce their employment contracts and negotiate their compensation packages. We help whistleblowers do the right thing. And we obtain justice for employees who have endured discrimination and sexual harassment on their jobs. In all these situations, we have one overriding goal -- to put you in the best position possible to be compensated for the harm done to you.
Protecting the rights of the people who protect us
Our firm proudly represents law enforcement officers and firefighters, who risk their lives daily in the line of duty in serving our communities. These brave men and women who protect us at great risk to themselves deserve the utmost protection on the job. Our seasoned attorneys understand the unique employment concerns of police officers and firefighters and are ready to represent them.
