Employment law covers a wide range of issues impacting workers and their livelihood. Employment law cases handled by our attorneys include:

  • Wage and Overtime Issues
  • Medical Leave Disputes
  • Retaliation Issues 
  • Discrimination and Harassment

In these matters, employers in Colorado enjoy sweeping protections, often making it difficult to prove wrongdoing. This is one of the many reasons it makes sense to discuss employment issues with a qualified attorney who can assess your situation, provide you information about your options, and guide you towards the best path forward.

The employment lawyers at Lewis Kuhn Swan PC have decades of experience protecting the rights of workers. Call us today to learn how we can help you.

Evidence in Employment Cases

In many employment cases, direct evidence of wrongdoing is difficult to obtain. Without things like video or audio recordings, emails, or other documented illegal conduct, it becomes a “your word versus their word” problem. This is one area where an attorney can prove very useful.

Direct evidence of wrongdoing is not always necessary to move forward. We may conduct an investigation into your claim to gather evidence including:

  • Witness reports and statements
  • Company hiring and firing patterns
  • Work comparisons

During the evidence gathering phase, we dig deeply into the history and behavior of your employer to determine if we can make a strong and compelling case. You can assist in this by keeping any communications you receive from your employer, including text messages and phone calls, and documenting all face-to-face interactions. In many cases, keeping daily records of your employer's misbehavior, including the types of misbehavior and names of witnesses, can be useful.

At-Will Employment

Colorado follows the legal doctrine of “employment at will.” Unscrupulous employers have used this law in the past to mask discriminatory and otherwise illegal employment practices. Our lawyers have the experience necessary to spot mistreatment and the resources needed to help workers get justice.
