Curtis Law Office specializes in providing legal assistance for employment discrimination, workers’ compensation, work hours, the Family Medical Leave Act, and most other employment-related matters. Our staff of legal experts are devoted to protecting your rights and improving the conditions of Wisconsin’s workers and their families.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of discrimination in the workplace, let the legal team at Curis Law Office provide the guidance and assistance necessary to stop those behaviors. Both federal and state laws prohibit employment practices that discriminate against workers, including:
- National Origin
- Marital Status
- Sexual Preference
- Arrest or Conviction Record
- Use or Nonuse of Lawful Products Outside the Workplace
If you’re employed under a written contract, including most union members, the ability to reduce or terminate your employment is governed by that contract. Most in Wisconsin are considered “at will” employees, and with few exceptions, “at will” employees can be terminated for any reason, or for no reason.
In exchange, the state of Wisconsin has created an Unemployment Compensation fund. The payments, available upon termination, are designed to provide necessary assistance while looking for new employment. For this reason, the circumstances under which you can be denied benefits after termination (without cause) are limited. If you’re terminated and denied Unemployment Compensation, you’ll want to seek legal advice to identify your options.
