The workplace should be a safe place. Unfortunately, some workers are subjected to unfair and illegal conditions by unscrupulous employers. Workers may not know what their rights in the workplace are, or may be afraid of speaking out against their employer in fear of retaliation. These labor violations can lead to lost wages and benefits, missed opportunities for advancement, and undue stress.
Unfair and discriminatory labor practices against employees can take many forms, including wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, refusal to give a reasonable accommodation, denial of leave, employer retaliation, and wage and hour violations. Workers who are victim to these and other unethical practices may not know their rights, or may be afraid to speak out against their employer for fear of retaliation.
If you have been diagnosed with a disabling injury or illness that leaves you unable to work for a living, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance through the Social Security Disability benefits program.

While you don’t technically need an attorney to represent you during the application process, hiring one can improve your chances of a successful claim. Statistics have shown that the Social Security Administration (SSA) is more likely to approve someone who is represented by an attorney.
