Employment Law

Many of us perform the routine practice of attending work daily in order to provide a better lifestyle for our family and ourselves. MFI provides legal representation when issues arise at the workplace preventing us from continuing our pursuit of a better life.

Employment Discrimination and Harassment

Are you someone who has faced an adverse employment decision as a result of your ethnicity, race, gender, religion and/or sexual orientation? If so, you may have an actionable claim against your employer for employment discrimination. In addition to discrimination, many workers are unaware that an employer is also liable for permitting a hostile work environment caused by the actions of its employees.

Workers' Compensation

Generally, injuries occurring while an employee is at work is covered under Workers' Compensation. State laws require that your employer, or your employer's insurance company, compensate you for injuries that occur while you are working. Benefits may include:

  • Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work
  • Payment of your medical expense
  • Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury

MFI has experience advocating on behalf of our clients despite an employer's pressure to avoid liability. Whether taking on a large publicly traded corporation or a local business enterprise, MFI is poised to protect the rights of our clients amidst working to earn a living.
