Employment Law Attorney – Representing Private Sector Employees and Government Employees
Maryland is an at-will employment state, but that does not mean employees are without rights. State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees in any part of the employment process. Employers are also prohibited from retaliatory discharge or taking disciplinary actions against workers who complain about the discrimination of others.
The Law Office of Janice Williams-Jones provides employment law representation to private sector and government employees. The Office protects the rights of workers in a broad span of employment law related matters. To schedule an appointment, please call 410-203-1246 or contact the office on line by clicking here.
Discrimination, Wages, Security Clearance Appeals, False Claims Act Cases and Employment Contracts
The Office represents private sector and government employees in matters involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and all other civil rights statutes. The Office’s employment law practice covers issues such as:
- Discrimination based on race, age, sex, religion, national origin and disability
- Sexual harassment and hostile work environment
- Denied or Revoked Security Clearances
- Overtime pay and Minimum Wage Issues
- Wrongful termination
- False Claims Act cases
Regardless of the type of discrimination you experience, it is important to report it to your employer and follow the company’s grievance procedure. You can then file a complaint with the EEOC or other appropriate agency. We can advise you during the process with your employer and represent you at agency hearings or in court.
In addition to discrimination and wage claims, Janice Williams-Jones handles employment contracts, including non-compete agreements and severance agreements. If you need her to review, draft or negotiate an employment contract, non-compete agreements or severance agreements, or litigate a case, she can help.
Ms. Williams-Jones can also assist you if your application for a security clearance has been denied or revoked. In addition, she can help individuals pursue legal claims involving companies or other entities that provide fraudulent or false information to the federal government to collect money.
