Employment Law

Fortunately, most workplace conflicts are resolved “in-house” with neither side having to call in the lawyers. But sometimes employees need someone to fight for their rights.  At Dumas & Vaughn, we represent employees who have experienced employment-related discrimination and harassment.

Compassion, Creativity, and Common Sense

We understand that employment often comprises a key part of who you are as a person. Most of us spend a large portion of our waking hours at work.  And we all deserve to work in a safe, respectful environment and to have our hard work and accomplishments recognized. At Dumas & Vaughn, we understand that employment disputes often involve sensitive, difficult decisions and that no two cases are the same. For example, a solution will likely look very different for an employee who is still employed by a company versus an employee who has already been fired or quit. We approach cases with sensitivity, practicality, and creativity, with an eye toward crafting common sense solutions. Additionally, we will give you our honest analysis of the problem and lay out your options for moving forward, whether it be through informal conflict resolution or litigation.
