Understanding Employment Law

Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation are unfortunately common in many workplaces. Attorney Clifford Weiss has extensive experience in handling such cases. He isn't just any attorney. With a history of working on both sides of employment law, first defending companies and now advocating for employees, he brings a unique perspective and understanding to each case. His experience allows him to anticipate potential challenges and develop effective strategies to overcome them.  

Wrongful Termination  

Wrongful termination is an unlawful act where an employer ends an employee's contract in contravention of federal or state laws. This often involves firing an employee based on their race, gender, age, religion, disability, or as retaliation for reporting illegal activities or exercising their legal rights. Attorney Clifford Weiss has a deep understanding of these issues and is committed to fighting for justice for those who have been wrongfully dismissed. 

Wage and Hour Laws  

Wage and hour laws are critical components of employment law. They ensure that employees are paid fairly for their work and are protected from exploitation by setting standards for minimum wage, hours worked, overtime pay, and child labor. The Department of Labor (DOL) and relevant state laws are instrumental in enforcing these standards. Attorney Clifford Weiss is well-versed in these laws and works tirelessly to ensure employees receive the compensation they deserve. 


Safety within the workplace is a major concern, and it's regulated by rules designed to protect employees from potential hazards. These safety measures, set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state laws, require employers to provide proper training, maintain safety equipment, and implement protocols to prevent accidents and injuries. Attorney Clifford Weiss is dedicated to ensuring that these safety regulations are adhered to and that workers are provided with a safe working environment. 


Anti-discrimination laws play a crucial role in ensuring a fair and unbiased workplace. They prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, age, religion, disability, or national origin. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state laws enforce these regulations. Workplace discrimination can take various forms, including unequal treatment, harassment, or denial of employment opportunities. Attorney Clifford Weiss fights diligently against such practices to uphold the rights of employees. 


Retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse actions against an employee in response to their protected activity, such as reporting discrimination or participating in an investigation. Employment laws protect employees from such retaliation, providing legal remedies for those who experience it. Attorney Clifford Weiss is committed to protecting employees from retaliation and seeking justice for those who have been wrongfully targeted.
