Upholding Employee Rights

You spend a significant amount of your life at work. You deserve a safe and supportive work environment, with fair and honest wages.

Unfortunately, far too many employers take advantage of their employees, violating the law in doing so. At The Lemons Law Firm, PLLC, attorney Carena Lemons can evaluate your situation and advise you on whether you have an employment law claim. If so, she can represent you throughout the legal process. She is passionate about standing up for the underdogs.

Based in Durham, North Carolina, Ms. Lemons represents workers in a wide range of industries and positions. She has more than 20 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of both state and federal employment law.

Wage And Hour Violations

The law sets important parameters around the employer-employee relationship, both to protect workers and establish a minimum bar for wages. If your employer has violated the law, you may be entitled to back pay and other compensation.

Ms. Lemons represents employees in all kinds of wage and hour claims, including:

  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Misclassification of employees as independent contractors
  • Failure to pay you for mandatory meal and rest breaks

She can address violations of both state and federal wage law.

Experiencing Discrimination, Harassment Or Retaliation At Work?

Nothing is worse than showing up to work day after day and being faced with discriminatory treatment or harassment – except, perhaps, losing your job after reporting such mistreatment. Ms. Lemons can enforce your rights and help you put a stop to discrimination or retaliation involving:

  • Race, ethnicity and national origin
  • Sex, gender and sexual orientation
  • Disability
  • Religion
  • Pregnancy
  • Marital status
  • Age (40 and older)

If you’re experiencing sexual harassment, you can also turn to Ms. Lemons for guidance and advocacy. She can stand up for your rights while protecting your livelihood.
