Richard Hayber is a Connecticut employment law attorney focuses on gaining fair compensation for employees whose rights have been violated by their employer. He is a graduate of Trinity College and earned his J.D. from University of Connecticut in 1992. He dedicated his career to employment law when he founded the Hayber Law Firm, and has fought for the rights of hundreds of hard working men and women across the country. He represents workers in both Federal and Connecticut court. In his spare time, he remains an active speaker on the subject of employment law through lectures and his regularly updated labor law blog.

Richard Hayber founded his own law firm because of his strong beliefs in protecting the rights of hard-working employees from the unfair practices that they can fall victim to. Hayber Law Firm assists employees with a variety of issues, from claims for unemployment benefits to wrongful employee termination, discrimination, and unpaid wages. Employees can face a range of possible encroachments on their rights, and the firm has experience in an array of complicated issues and varied circumstances. Any type of worker, from salesmen to teachers, can be the victim of unscrupulous practices by an employer.

Cases that the firm is experienced in handling represent individuals and groups in class actions. Some of these situations involve unpaid wages, particularly to those who are mis-classified as being in an administrative position. Assistant managers are often the victims of this misleading tactic. Law regarding fair payment per hour is also an area of particular interest to the firm.

While there are powerful laws are in place to protect the rights of employees, companies may choose to ignore them in the interest of a bottom line or mismanagement. Unfortunately, these rights are sometimes violated by businesses who seek to take advantage of their workers. Ensuring proper payment for overtime and the ability to return to work after a legally protected leave of absence are some of the ways that Hayber Law Firm fights for the rights of workers everywhere.
