Austin General Employment Law Services Attorney
Assisting Workers Throughout Texas
For overtime and unpaid/underpaid wage cases, call (888) 333-7147 or contact us online for a free consultation.
For other types of employment law matters, such as those listed below, we begin with a 30 or 60-minute paid consultation and strategy session with attorney Aaron Johnson by phone, Zoom, or in person. There you can provide an overview of your situation, ask your questions, and explain your goals. Aaron will answer your questions (to the extent possible in that timeframe) and discuss your legal and practical options.
If you want to consider engaging Aaron to represent or assist you beyond the initial consultation, you can discuss budget and fee structure options during your initial consultation. For matters other than overtime and unpaid/underpaid wages, we may offer an hourly fee, contingency fee, or a hybrid of the two, depending on the situation.
If you need to ask a question about the consultation process or fee structure options before getting into the specifics of your case, you are welcome to call us at (888) 333-7147 or contact us online.
We only represent workers, not employers.
Examples of employment law matters we handle, in addition to overtime and wage cases, include:
- Review and negotiation of severance agreements: Employers often ask employees to sign a severance agreement upon separation from employment. The agreement usually includes a release of all legal claims the employee might have. If you have been asked to sign a severance agreement, or you plan to end your employment and believe you may have legal claims, it is wise to consult with a labor and employment attorney for advice and assistance negotiating a fair severance package.
- Review and negotiation of employment agreements and related contracts: If you are being asked to sign an employment contract, a noncompete agreement, or another type of agreement, Mr. Johnson can review the proposed terms, advise you about potential risks and benefits, and assist you in negotiating the best possible terms. If your employer or former employer has accused you of breaching a contract, Attorney Johnson can review and evaluate your potential risks and options.
- Advice and negotiation of accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act: The federal Americans with Disabilities Act and Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code, prohibit discrimination in employment against individuals with disabilities who are otherwise qualified to do the job. These laws apply to employers with 15 or more employees and to government entities.
These laws require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified employees with disabilities. Your employer might not be required to provide the precise accommodation you prefer, but they must engage in an “interactive process” to determine what options are reasonable and whether they cause any undue hardship. Mr. Johnson can help you evaluate potential requests for accommodations and possible alternatives, advise you about how best to discuss them with your employer, or negotiate with your employer on your behalf to arrange for a suitable accommodation.
- General consultation and advice regarding employment law rights: Mr. Johnson has experience handling a broad range of employment law claims, including discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, contract rights, and wage rights. He can discuss your case with you or review documents in order to evaluate your situation and offer advice about potential claims, legal procedure, options, and practical considerations.
