Our Dallas Employment Lawyers Help Resolve Workplace Claims
Our Dallas employment lawyers pursue favorable resolution of workplace claims for our clients. Our attorneys guide clients in a manner that helps them understand the legal ramifications of their options. When employee rights are abused, our attorneys understand the economic and emotional dynamics that also arise. Kilgore & Kilgore is a firm that is intentionally small, so we can develop personal relationships with our clients as we guide them through the legal process.
Our clients include employees who are disabled, who work in a hostile workplace, who are subject to discrimination or sexual harassment, or who suffered from illnesses such as cancer. Some of these employees filed for disability benefits or family leave due them but instead experienced retaliation for making such claims. Some of our clients suffered termination and were denied funds to which they were entitled. Many of our clients felt they stood no chance against a big company, but we helped many prevail despite the odds. Unpaid wages, commissions or overtime, severance, and the denial of benefits or family leave are but a few of the situations we resolve for the clients of our firm.

We know the federal and Texas state laws that protect employees. Through experience, our Dallas employment lawyers know which statutes apply to each situation, so as to achieve the desired outcome.

We work with local and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), to name a few.

Put Our Experience and Knowledge of the Employment Law System
to Work for You
Our Dallas employment lawyers have decades of experience defending employees whose rights were abused or ignored. Many employment law claims must first be filed with either the EEOC and/or the TWC. This filing must occur within a certain time limit in order to preserve the right to file a lawsuit. There are other restrictions. For example, your company must employ at least 15 employees before it can be liable for many types of discrimination. Or that the company is required to employ at least 20 people before it can be liable for an age discrimination claim. After your claim is reviewed, you might receive a Notice of Right to Sue. This Notice allows you to proceed with a lawsuit if you wish. In some cases, our Dallas employment lawyers can represent you through the EEOC or TWC process.
Our Dallas Employment Lawyers Can Also Help With
Employee Benefits Litigation
The laws governing employee benefits are distinct from those governing the process of joining, rising through the ranks, and leaving a company. Texas insurance laws and the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) give rights to employees who are entitled to employment benefits. Employee benefits are always being expanded or contracted, depending upon many factors. Our Dallas employment lawyers may be able to help you with employee benefits that were denied or withdrawn illegally. If you have a claim that was denied or ignored, contact Kilgore & Kilgore. We have helped many people get the benefits they were denied.
