Attorney Profile

I am a class action lawyer, concentrating my practice on labor and employment law matters. My firm, Werman Salas P.C., represents working people in individual, collective, and class action lawsuits throughout the United States. I am proud that my firm is a nationally known and recognized leader in advocating the rights of employees in lawsuits for unpaid minimum wages, overtime pay, and other kinds of owed compensation filed under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour laws. My firm also has substantial experience and a history of success in representing employees in claims for independent contractor misclassification, violations of the Family Medical Leave Act, and claims for sexual harassment, gender, race, and age discrimination. If you need to find a Chicago employment lawyer who will aggressively work to recover your unpaid overtime or other owed compensation, or a lawyer who will help you in any other kind of workplace dispute, my Chicago employment law firm will help. www.flsalaw.com
