For employers and employees alike, navigating state and federal laws governing employment practices, wages and overtime, leave and time off, and other labor law issues can be challenging. If an employer violates the law, whether consciously or unintentionally, that business or its overseers may be liable for overtime or back pay, attorney fees and possible punitive damages. For employees, it can be intimidating to speak up against an employer or co-worker without fully understanding the protections offered under the law.

Trusted Representation For Businesses And Employees Across North Carolina

At McCoy Wiggins Cleveland & Mclean PLLC, we have been representing the interests of working men and women as well as businesses in Fayetteville and the surrounding communities for nearly 60 years.

We know firsthand the financial and emotional challenges facing employees who have been wrongfully terminated. Additionally, we understand the deleterious effects a drawn-out lawsuit can have on a business's finances, operations and reputation. By working closely with our clients, we can address these disputes in a timely manner, find solutions that mitigate excess costs and provide counsel to avoid future disputes.

When representing employees, some common employment law matters we see include:

  • Wrongful termination
  • Discrimination based on race, gender, disability, pregnancy, age, religion and national origin
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wage and hour claims
  • Retaliation on the part of an employer or another employee (whistleblower cases)
  • Violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

When defending employers on the other side of the above issues, we look to protect a business's reputation as well as its bottom line. In addition to resolving immediate employment law issues, we can help implement operations policies that prevent future lawsuits pertaining to civil rights violations, employment agreements, hostile work environment claims and numerous other types of violations of policy or statute.
