“As an employee, you have rights, and those rights matter. I’m here to help you make sense of where you stand in a dispute with your employer, and to vigorously pursue justice on your behalf.”
– Jenny Sharpe

A Healthy Work Environment Isn’t Luck.

It’s The Law.

Employment Law Rights for Employees

Every worker deserves the opportunity to earn a living in a safe, supportive environment, and to be evaluated on the merits and quality of their job performance. Unfortunately, things don’t always happen the way they should in the workplace, or even as the law mandates.

At J Sharpe, we represent employees in a wide array of industries, and at all employment levels, who feel that their rights have been violated on the job. We have over 30 years of expertise representing employees in all areas of practice, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour disputes, and conflicts surrounding medical leave.

Whether in the courtroom or at the negotiation table, we are committed to being steadfast advocates for our clients. If you’ve been wronged in the workplace, we’re prepared to doggedly pursue the accountability and results you deserve to make things right.

Employee Rights. Protected.

Ill will and upset feelings that arise from a workplace dispute don’t always translate into a viable legal case. That is, not every workplace conflict can or should end in litigation. For that reason, please complete our case evaluation form so we can examine the specifics of your situation. If you have a case, we’ll tell you. If you don’t, we’ll tell you that as well. We’re here to resolve workplace disputes, not needlessly prolong them when there’s no clear legal remedy.

Jenny Sharpe

I have been fighting for the rights of employees for over 30 years. I started my own boutique firm in 2005 because I wanted more freedom to choose the clients and cases that inspire me. I don’t take on every person that walks through my door as a client. If I don’t think you have a case against your employer, I’ll tell you. But If I do, and you think we make a formidable team, I’ll be with you every step of the way, from initial consultation through final resolution.
