Nebraska Employment Law Lawyer
You have probably heard that Nebraska is an "employment at will" state. What that means is that absent a contract, or a specific law prohibiting it, an employer in Nebraska can hire, fire, promote, demote or change a term or condition of employment "at will." This doesn't necessarily mean that an employer can do whatever it wants to its employees. There are several laws which regulate the workplace that must be followed by employers.
At Kellogg & Palzer, P.C., we have handled cases, for both employers and employees, involving discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability, marital status, religion and national origin. We have handled cases of retaliation, unpaid wages, breaches of employment contracts, and violations of the Family Medical Leave Act, Wage & Hour. Because our firm represents a number of businesses in the Omaha metropolitan area, we are currently only representing employers and not representing employees (or former employees) with discrimination or other wrongful discharge cases, due to the high potential of a conflict of interest.
If you are an employer seeking representation, at Kellogg & Palzer, P.C. we help you mold your employee policies to avoid conflicts before they happen. Sometimes, it is inevitable that an employee has to be terminated. We work with our employer clients to make sure that all state and federal laws are followed and that the action occurs in the fairest and most professional manner possible.
If you are employee seeking representation, we would recommend contacting online lawyer finding services, such as Findlaw.com or Lawyers.com, or the Lawyer Referal Service from the Nebraska Bar Association (nebar.com).
