Fighting for the Rights of Employees

Ramsay County CourthouseSince 1987, the Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota law firm of Warner Law Office , has fought for the rights of employees who are the victims of wrongful termination, have been subjected to hostile work environments, or have had their reputations damaged by false charges and innuendo.

If you believe that your employer has wrongfully terminated your employment, committed defamation of character, age discrimination, or other unlawful discrimination, permitted the sexual harassment of you, interfered with your right to Family or Medical Leave (FMLA), retaliated against you for protected conduct, or has otherwise violated your rights under the law, contact Warner Law Office for a free initial consultation.

We handle all manner of employment disputes, except claims for workers' compensation. Some of the more common kinds of employment cases we see involve the following:

  • Defamation of Character: If an employer made false statements about you at work or in a professional reference, it may face liability for damage to your reputation. In a defamation of character , you must prove that your employer improperly made a statement about you to another that was unprivileged, false, and defamatory.
  • Age Discrimination: An age discrimination claim arises when an employer uses age as a factor in making important decisions about your employment.
  • Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment takes on a variety of different forms. You do not have to tolerate an offensive work environment created by your employer or coworkers. We represent people in sexual harassment claims of quid pro quo and hostile work environment.
  • Family Medical Leave Act: Under the FMLA , your employer may have to provide you unpaid family leave for the birth or care for your child, to care for an adopted child or to care for a child in foster care. It may also have to provide medical leave to care for a family member suffering from a serious medical condition, or to cope with your own serious health condition.
  • Whistleblowing: Under Minnesota state law, an employer cannot retaliate against you for reporting in good faith that it has broken the law. Protected reports include reports to the government or even simply to the employer itself. Federal law provides similar protections against retaliation for certain kinds of reporting of illegal activity of an employer. This is known as being a " whistleblower ".
