Wrongful Termination Lawyers and Employment Discrimination Attorneys in Springfield and Northampton

Employment Attorney Raymond Dinsmore provides professional and affordable legal help to employees in a wide variety of employment law matter including discrimination, civil rights, family and medical leave, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and unemployment compensation.

Wrongful Discharge:  There are many exceptions to the rule that at-will employees can be fired “for any reason or no reason.” If you are an employee under contract with the employer, your rights may be more substantial than you think.  If you feel that you made have been fired illegally or in breach of contract, contact me to discuss your case in more detail.  

Discrimination: State and federal laws protect employees suffering from sexual harassment and from adverse employment action based on race, national origin, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religious creed, veteran status, and more.  Discrimination cases are subject to the short and stringent statute of limitations requirements.  As an experienced employment law attorney in Northampton and Springfield, I will fight to protect your rights. Contact me today to set up your initial consultation. 

Wage and Hour Violations:  There are numerous laws governing hours of work, pay and payroll deduction requirements, overtime and employee compensation. For instance, many employers attempt to improperly classify employees as salaried workers exempt from state and federal overtime requirements.  Attorney Raymond Dinsmore represents employees in a wide range of wage and hour matters.

Family Medical Leave Act:  Under the FMLA, companies with fifty or more employees are required to grant unpaid medical leave to qualified workers seeking time off to care for themselves or qualifying members of their families.  If you have been denied leave, have been retaliated against for using FMLA, or simply have questions about the process that needs to be answered, do not hesitate to contact Attorney Dinsmore who handles cases in Springfield and Northampton.
