Marietta Employment & Civil Rights Attorneys
Fighting to preserve your job, your employee rights, and your civil rights in Georgia
Marietta, Georgia and Cobb County are growing at a rapid pace. The area is home to some of the best- known employers – Lockheed Martin Aeronautical, The Home Depot, and WellStar Health System. The region has a first-rate county education system. More than 350,00 people in the region work in transportation, manufacturing, agriculture, mining, telecommunications, retail, entertainment, electronic technology, manufacturing, finance, government, and many other types of employment.
This array of opportunities is great for employers and employees, but only if everyone who wants a job or has a job is valued based on their abilities and contributions to their companies – and not devalued because of their race, sex, national origin, or other identity characteristics. The civil rights of all Marietta residents need to be respected so that they contribute to making Marietta a great place to live.
At Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP, our Marietta employee and civil rights lawyers fight to ensure judgments about work do not discriminate, that employers do harass their employees, that employers pay you everything you earned, and that employers don’t retaliate because an employee asserted their rights or disclosed employer fraud. We fight for anyone whose Constitutional rights or federal rights were violated. Our lawyers are also experienced business litigators. Call us today to discuss your right to fair play in your job and your life. We represent employees who work in every profession and every pay scale.
This was my first time having to seek legal counsel on an employment issue so I was a bit nervous about the process. I was referred to Ed Buckley by a friend I respect and trust, and one that has over 20 years of experience in law. Mr. Buckley made the process much less intimidating for me. Many thanks to Mr. Buckley and team for helping me. I'd definitely hire them again. – Google review

If you have any concerns about your employee rights, contact us now. We handle the full range of employee complaints, including:
Discrimination and wrongful treatment
You need your job. You want to contribute. You worked hard to develop the skills to do your job. Employers in Marietta are required to judge you based on your abilities and not any of your personal characteristics such as your race, sex, religion, disability, age (over 40), a disability, sexual identity, gender preference, or your national origin. We’ll fight to hold your employer accountable. We’ve helped numerous employees obtain full compensation and additional statutory damages for discriminating against you.
There are different types of harassment – sexual, racial, and harassment based on other protected characteristics. Harassment includes quid pro quo harassment (requesting sexual favors for better treatment at work) and hostile workplace harassment (creating an environment where your discomfort level is pervasive, serious, and based on your protected class).
Our Marietta employee lawyers also file retaliation claims when employers fire you or negatively affect your employment because you asserted your employee rights.
Our Marietta employment lawyers handle the following types of employment discrimination and wrongful treatment claims:

Employment retaliation and whistleblower claims
Your employer has no right to punish your for assert any of your legal rights including the right to file discrimination claims, take a protected leave of absence, or blow the whistle on employer misconduct. We protect your rights when you file:
Personal employment rights
We represent workers who have their rights violated when they take a protected leave of absence from work related to a serious medical condition, to care for a family member, or to adopt a child.
If you need to care for a new addition to your family or the health of anyone close to you, you have the right to unpaid leave if you have worked for your employer for at least twelve months and other conditions are met.
If you suffer a vehicle accident, a slip and fall, a machinery accident, or any other type of workplace injury, we’ll help you file your workers’ compensation claim. We also file Georgia workers’ compensation claims for employees who become ill due to their job.
