 Unflinching Determination and a Proven Guide

We know challenging your employer may seem daunting, but Halunen Law employment attorneys have the proven expertise and experience to guide the way. We are fearless in pursuit of justice on your behalf. Together we’ll chart the course and take a stand for what’s right.

Wrongful Termination

Being fired from a job can be incredibly stressful. Many terminations are considered wrongful under the law. Learn more about what constitutes wrongful termination and your rights.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment takes many forms, but it boils down to violating a person’s right to be safe and comfortable at work. Read more about this all-too-prevalent conduct and your rights.

Discrimination

Unfortunately workplace discrimination still occurs. Whether based on race, age, gender, disability, sexual preference, or other characteristics, we will fight for your rights against this illegal behavior.

Whistleblower Retaliation

If you witnessed illegal conduct at work, challenged it, and were fired as a result, it may be retaliation. And it’s illegal. Learn about your rights against this form of wrongful termination.

Whistleblower Law

The False Claims Act and similar state statutes provide significant financial rewards to whistleblowers who expose fraud against government agencies or programs.

Hostile Work Environment

Your daily job might have inherent stresses, but if you’re dealing with a hostile work environment, you may actually have legal recourse. Read about what factors to consider and your rights.

Severance

A severance may be offered and used against an employee to leverage the company’s interests and limit the employee’s options. Learn more about our expertise in navigating these critical negotiations.

Wage & Hour

Federal and state laws protect employees, requiring fair payment for hours worked and proper classification of employees. When these laws are broken, workers can file claims and seek damages. We have the expertise to help.

Everyone deserves to be treated fairly and with respect. Being an individual employee doesn’t change that, regardless of who you work for. The employee rights lawyers at Halunen Law fight each day to protect the rights of workers who are entitled to fair treatment under the law. Our passion and perseverance have yielded positive results for employees in Minnesota, California, Illinois, and beyond.

With years of trial and appeals experience in both state and federal courts, our attorneys have successfully litigated hundreds of employment discrimination and wrongful termination cases involving sexual harassment, retaliation for whistleblowing, and discrimination based on protected characteristics including age, religion, disability, gender, race and sexual orientation.

We represent employees who have been denied overtime or misclassified as independent contractors. We litigate qui tam or False Claims Act cases on behalf of whistleblowers who challenge companies that engage in fraud against the federal government or a state.

We understand that it can be intimidating to stand alone against an employer. Our job is to help you fight for your legal rights when they have been violated. We provide an open, professional environment where our clients feel comfortable, yet confident that our tough-minded lawyers will aggressively tackle their case. If you have been wronged and want to explore what your rights are, please contact us for a free, confidential consultation.
