Employment & Workplace Law
Both employers and employees have the need for an experienced attorney in employment law issues. Employers need to understand how to properly deal with employees to avoid claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation including during a reduction in the workforce. This gives rise to the need for assistance with severance packages and the need to defend wrongful termination claims. Some employees have the right to sue employers for termination or workplace harassment. Attorneys at Grady & Riley, LLP can help determine the proper course of action should an individual find themselves the subject of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace.
False Claims Act
False claims cost our government untold millions. The government has created laws that protect and reward whistleblowers for exposing this type of corruption. Doctors and medical providers falsely bill for services never provided or overbill for services that should be provided under Medicare or Medicaid as part of a global fee. Exposing overbilling allows the government to recover these false claims as wells as penalties and fees. If you are the first to report the false claims, the government will pay a percentage of the recovery, under the correct circumstances, to you. Allow the attorneys at Grady & Riley, LLP to assist you in protecting your rights.
Home Improvement Contractor Claims
When an existing home needs updates or repairs, there are many times that the contractor fails to perform the work in a proper manner. The Home Improvement Act protects homeowners from contractors who fail to properly complete the work. A proper home improvement contract requires certain issues to be disclosed in the agreement. For example, a start date, and estimated completion date and a right of rescission. Even when the contractor goes out of business, the home guaranty fund may provide a source of recovery from a home improvement contractor. To protect yourself, make sure that you have a home improvement contract reviewed by an attorney prior to your acceptance.
