Sexual Discrimination & Harassment
Gender or sex discrimination in employment has been explicitly prohibited by law in the US for more than 42 years, yet sexual discrimination and harassment in the workplace continues to be a problem. Mr. Brier has successfully represented both male and female victims of workplace sexual harassment and discrimination at all levels of employment.

Age Discrimination
The average age of the American worker is rising every year. As our workforce ages, cases of age discrimination are becoming more and more common. If you are age 40 or older and have suffered discrimination at work on the basis of age, please contact Mr. Brier immediately.

Disability Rights & Discrimination
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), people with disabilities are protected from workplace discrimination. That means it is illegal for employers to discriminate against workers who have disabilities in any aspect of employment, including promoting, hiring, firing, and pay. Mr. Brier is dedicated to protecting employees' rights in all areas of employment law.

FMLA Violations
Under the terms of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993, employees that meet certain qualifications are able to take a leave of absence from their employment for personal and family matters. If you have been employed full-time for 12 months and your employer has 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius, you are probably covered by the FMLA.

Unpaid Compensation & Unpaid Commissions
The situations are familiar: a salesperson has closed a major deal and does not receive the proper commission; an employee is asked to work off the clock to complete an important project; a salesperson that landed the sales prospect, arranged meetings, successfully closed the deal, and performed the majority of the sales presentation is told the project was a team effort. All of these situations are too common and leave a person without compensation. If you find yourself with unpaid wages, contact attorney Matthew J. Brier for aggressive representation with your claim.

Employee Benefits
Employee benefits law is complex. If you are involved in a dispute about employee benefits, contact Mr. Brier for a confidential initial consultation.

Religious Discrimination
Your religion or lack thereof should never be the basis for an employment decision. An employer cannot refuse to hire you or withhold a promotion based upon your religion or religious affiliation. If you believe that an employer has discriminated against you because of your religion, it is important to document any occurrence or example as completely as possible. The greater the factual evidence you can provide, the more credible your claim will be.
