When an individual employee or employer runs into a potential problem in the workforce, they should take the opportunity to learn about their rights and obligations under current State and Federal law. The attorneys at LaRowe Gerlach Taggart LLP are here to help both employers and employees find the right solutions to their employment law problems.
Employment Law covers a wide range of issues for Wisconsin workers and employers. There are many statutes and programs that apply to each individual area of the law. For example, there are both Federal and State Labor Standards which address wage and hour labor requirements for Wisconsin employees. The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) are examples of federal laws that protect specified classes of employees in the workplace. Another example is the Wisconsin Fair Employment law which deals with discrimination in employment settings. The Family and Medical Leave Act gives workers certain rights for time away from work for the birth of a child and serious health conditions. Finally, the Wisconsin Vocational Rehabilitation program is a federal and state program designed to obtain, maintain and improve employment for people with disabilities. These are just a few of the laws and programs in place for Wisconsin workers and employers.
