Assertive Las Vegas Employment Law Attorney

Empowering employees
No one has the right to harass you at your place of work or deny you access to employee benefits. Armed with 18 years of experience, Mary F. Chapman protects the rights of workers from abusive colleagues or opportunistic management.

Ready to stand up to big corporations
Mary understands that employees are often hesitant to sue their employers or stand up for their wage and hour rights, particularly when their employers are large corporations. Mary supports you through this stressful period of time and helps you receive the justice you deserve. She can assist you with cases involving:

  • Defamation
  • Slander
  • Denial of meal or rest breaks
  • Unpaid overtime
  • Unpaid wages
  • Unemployment
  • Workplace violations
  • Unsafe work conditions
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful termination
  • Sexual harassment

Challenging discrimination in the workplace
Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary characteristics that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Age
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Sexual identity and expression
  • Military status
  • Color

By applying her extensive knowledge of state and federal employment laws, Mary redresses the discrimination and levels the employment playing field.

Fighting against sexual harassment
You do not have to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, sexist comments, or degrading images and emails at your workplace. These are examples of sexual harassment, which is illegal. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position. Although women are most commonly targeted, men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. Responsible parties can include coworkers, supervisors and the company entity. Harassment can take the form of physical contact, visual images, email transmissions, general derogatory statements or unwanted romantic overtures. Mary advocates for your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
