Macon, GA Labor & Employment

Employers are responsible for creating a safe work environment for their employees. This includes maintaining honest and respectful relationships, as well as ensuring all employees are treated the same under company policy.

However, some employers do not abide by these practices. They have been known to discriminate against certain workers, create toxic work environments, and withhold pay from their hardworking employees. These harmful business methods aren’t just unethical, they’re illegal. Federal and state labor laws were enacted to protect workers and hold unjust employers accountable for their actions.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of labor law violations, contact our Macon office today. Complete a free, no-risk case evaluation to get started.

  • Laws That Protect Workers in Georgia

    There are federal and Georgia-specific laws that offer protections to workers. They include:

    • Minimum Wage: Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour as of 2020.
    • Overtime: The FLSA mandates that employers pay their employees 150 percent, or time and a half, for hours worked in excess of the 40 hour work week.
    • Emergency Leave: Employers are required to provide their employees 12 weeks of unpaid leave within a 12 month period under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Employees can use this leave for the birth of a child or a personal/family illness, among other reasons.
    • Unpaid Wages: Georgia law restricts an employer from withholding wages from an employee. The employee can seek to recover these wages, as well as liquidated damages, from their employer. The liquidated damages can be equal to the amount of lost wages.
  • Workplace Discrimination

    Employers have been known not to hire or promote based on personal attributes such as race, age, sexual orientation, and religion. This practice, while unfortunate, is still very common. Discrimination in the workplace is unnacceptable by any means, which is why we’re here to help take the fight back to your employer. Here are a few examples:

    • Failure to hire/promote based on personal characteristics
    • Enforcing disciplinary policies unequally
    • Listing unnecessary job requirements to alienate certain groups
    • Refusing to reasonably accommodate religious practices/customs and disabilities
    • Advertising job openings in a way that excludes certain groups
  • Harassment

    Harassment can make any workplace untenable. Examples include:

    • Unwanted touching
    • Physical or sexual assault
    • Verbal harassment (e.g., slurs, name-calling, ridicule, threats)
    • Offensive gestures
    • Physical or verbal intimidation

    Workplace harassment can take many forms, as the above is not an exhaustive list. If you believe you may have been harassed, contact our Macon office.
