Conquering Mountains Of Workplace Injustice

At Hollingshead & Dudley, we focus on employee grievances because we believe that workers deserve fair treatment and a hospitable environment in which to do their jobs. Our attorneys have experience taking cases to trial and fighting for our clients' rights in court. Whether you were fired illegally or face a hostile work environment, we are proud to stand up for you.

We will help you surmount the imposing obstacles that stand in your way, conquering workplace injustice to make life better all around.

From our offices in St. Louis and Kansas City, we handle employee rights cases throughout Missouri. Such cases often involve:

  • Discrimination claimsEmployers discriminate against workers for a number of reasons. Under federal and state law, employers cannot discriminate based on age, disability, national origin, race/color, religion or sex. In Missouri, the cities of Columbia, Kansas City and St. Louis extend workplace protections to LGBT employees. Employers are also prohibited from paying men and women different wages for the same work. If you are being discriminated against for any of these reasons, it is likely that you can file a claim. The law also prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for filing a good faith complaint to the company about discrimination that is taking place in the workplace.
  • Retaliation for work-related injuries — It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for reporting on-the-job injuries, regardless of whether the employees file workers' compensation claims or not.
  • Severance agreements and contractsOur attorneys are skilled at negotiating severance packages. We also review employment contracts, employee compensation, and non-compete and confidentiality agreements to ensure our clients' interests are protected.
  • Sexual harassmentMany employees are afraid to file sexual harassment or gender discrimination claims out of fear that they will be fired, demoted or punished in some other way. The law actually protects workers in these situations. Employers cannot fire or retaliate against employees who allege sexual harassment or pregnancy discrimination.
  • Wage, hour and overtime disputesWhen clients believe they have been misclassified or have otherwise received less pay than they deserve, we listen to the facts and determine whether they have a claim.
  • Wrongful discharge — Employers cannot fire an employee for discriminatory reasons, in retaliation for filing a good faith complaint of discrimination or unlawful conduct by co-workers/supervisors, because he or she refused to do an illegal act or because a workers' compensation or Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claim was filed. There are also other situations when employers cannot fire employees. Our skilled lawyers will assess your case if you have been fired for any of these reasons.
  • Unemployment compensation — We represent employees who are not receiving the unemployment compensation that they deserve. Our lawyers are skilled in such hearings.
