Employment Law

Our attorneys are dedicated to ensuring that employers pay their employees properly as required under the law and provide workplaces free from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.

Did you know that Colorado law provides for two paid ten minute breaks in every 8 hour shift? The law also provides for a lunch break, of at least 30 minutes, that may be unpaid. Many employers do not give their employees the proper breaks despite the legal requirement to do so. If you think you have not been given the breaks you are entitled to under law, please fill out the contact form on this page to set up a free consultation. You may also reach us via our toll free number.

Both federal and state law also provide protections for employees by setting rules related to payment of minimum wage and overtime for “covered” employees. Whether an employee is covered under the law, that is, entitled to minimum wage and overtime, can often be a complicated question with the answer dependent on the specific facts and circumstances of any given case. If you think you are not being paid proper minimum wage or overtime, contact us to set up a free consultation.

Similarly, both federal and state law provide certain protections for employees by prohibiting discrimination and retaliation on the basis of race, color, national origin, and religion, among others. Colorado state law also prohibits discrimination and retaliation on the basis of sexual orientation. Remember, the creation of a hostile work environment based on any of these prohibited categories may also constitute unlawful discrimination or retaliation. If you think you have been subject to any form of unlawful discrimination or retaliation, please contact us for a free consultation. These claims can often be complex with short deadlines for filing an initial complaint so time is of the essence.

The attorneys at Andrus Wagstaff recognize that employment disputes often arise outside of the context of pay or discrimination. Often employees have questions regarding employment agreements, non-compete agreements, or severance agreements. We have experience handling nearly every type of issue that may arise during employment and invite you to request a free consultation to discuss whatever problem you may be facing.
