The Employment Lawyers at Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP

Many of us believe that our jobs are our lives. We spend the majority of our waking hours on the job.  Some people see their coworkers more than their own family members.  If something illegal or harmful happens to you at work, such as not receiving a promotion because of your gender or working more hours for less pay than you deserve under the law, it can be a stressful time in your life. You’re not sure what to do. Dou you contact employment lawyers? Do you say something to someone? How will this affect your ability to pay your bills? What should your next steps be?

When you experience employment discrimination, wage and hour violation, or see an illegal act at work, it’s important to understand how you can prevent this from happening to someone else.  Employment and labor attorneys at Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, with offices in Washington, DC, New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Nashville, and Baltimore are ready to help client nationwide with issues involving their employment.

What Falls Under Employment Law?

Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP handles many common employment law matters, including the following:


People continue to experience discrimination in the workplace. Whether it’s because of your race, your sex, or your religion, a disability, or your age, our employment lawyers are prepared to help you with your discrimination case.

Sexual Harassment

Unlike gender discrimination, which can be done in a discreet manner, sexual harassment can cause a hostile work environment.  Many actions can be considered sexual harassment, such as inappropriate sexual advances, sexualized comments, sexual coercion, abuse, or threats. Our employment lawyers in New York, Washington, DC, San Francisco, San Diego, Nashville, and Baltimore are ready to stand with you in this fight.

Wage and Hour Violations

Not many people realize that they aren’t being a paid a fair and legal wage. Had to work late one night but didn’t get overtime? That’s illegal. Instead of pay, did you receive “time off?” Still may be illegal. If you’re an independent contractor, you may have issues with receiving payments from employers. If this is the case, it would help to have an employment or labor attorney by your side.

Whistleblower/Qui Tam/False Claims Act Lawsuits

If you witnessed something illegal at work, you may not know what your next steps are. If you have a qui tam case on your hands, you’re going to need an experienced whistleblower lawyer who’s handled qui tam cases on federal, state, and local levels, like Sanford Heisler Sharp’s whistleblower attorneys.

Financial Litigation

Has your employer mismanaged your 401(k)? Or maybe your elderly parents were victims of elder financial abuse? Whatever the case may be, when your finances are involved in illegal manners, you need a reliable financial attorney by your side. Our San Diego lawyers have been helping hundreds throughout the years with their claims.
