Labor and Employment Litigation

Practice hero image

DiCello Levitt Gutzler represents individuals and classes harmed by the actions of corporations and their representatives in their capacities as employers. If your workplace fails to protect you from physical or psychological injury or from the infringement of your rights due to noncompliance with OSHA, EEOC, wage and hour requirements, and other state and federal employment laws, we can help. DiCello Levitt litigates matters where companies’ cost-saving measures violate their employees’ rights through such practices as: misclassification of independent contractors, unsafe working conditions, and failure to pay minimum wages or adequate overtime, or provide legally mandated break times. Our extensive negotiating experience enables us to successfully challenge arbitration agreements, non-competes, and other employment contracts, as well as enforce workers’ rights under collective bargaining agreements.

Our lawyers also protect employees who experience discrimination in the workplace based on race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion. We assist women who are not receiving pay equal to their male peers, pregnant women who are terminated or passed over for promotions, and workers in cases of disparate treatment, hostile workplaces, and sexual harassment. If you have been discriminated against at work, we will help you. We will not only protect your position and recover compensation for your losses, but we will also fight to change the policies and practices that allowed these illegal actions to take place, while making sure similar behavior does not occur in the future.  We protect whistleblowers who help to bring illegal practices to light, and we investigate systemic workplace abuses in order to hold companies responsible and ensure more fair practices in recruitment, hiring, promotion, and pay.
