WORKERS' RIGHTS

Our practice is focused on class action litigation. We represent a diverse range of people that includes workers, investors, the elderly, victims of sexual abuse, and others seeking justice.

Wage & Hour

Labor laws protect workers from illegal pay practices and working conditions. EKO represents workers when employers refuse to pay proper wages, reimburse expenses, or provide legally required breaks. Our attorneys have represented workers in cases against the country's largest companies.

Misclassification

Misclassifying workers is a common scheme for unscrupulous employers to increase profits at their workers' expense. Common examples of misclassification include treating "gig economy" workers as independent contractors and restaurant and retail managers as "exempt" employees. EKO fights for lost wages and systemic changes that safeguard workers' rights to a fair workplace.

Hospital Worker Safety
