We're Leveling the Playing Field and Righting Wrongs for Employees
From discrimination to harassment to wrongful termination, if your employer has treated you unfairly, Venardi Zurada will vigorously pursue the financial compensation you deserve.
What Makes Us Different? – Contingency Pricing
In most employment law cases, we work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning if we don’t make a recovery for you, we will not collect a fee. We believe it’s the right thing to do, and it means that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from demanding justice when you’ve been wronged.
Unfortunately, most employers are more knowledgeable about employment law than their employees are. They also tend to have a relationship with a lawyer or law firm. Both of these factors put you at a disadvantage—that is, until you bring us into the conversation.
With us by your side, the playing field is level, and your employer will either right the wrongs that have been committed voluntarily or at the direction of the court.
Laws Exist to Protect Employees, and We Make Sure They Do
Our team is both respected in our industry and successful in the courtroom, having achieved a 99 percent favorable judgement rate at trial.
At Venardi Zurada, we work with clients from all walks of life and in a wide variety of industries, including restaurant, retail, technology, manufacturing, medical, construction, and more.
In each of these business environments, there are laws that employers must follow regarding the fair treatment of their employees.
For example, employers:
- Cannot discriminate based on race, religion, gender, nationality, disability, or many other factors
- Must assure proper pay to employees
- Must allow meal and rest breaks
- Are required to compensate employees for overtime
- Must correctly classify an employee’s work and pay them appropriately
And the list of much-needed protections for employees goes on. Read more about the types of claims we negotiate, settle, or take before a judge and jury for employees by following the links below.
