Employment Law Attorney Advocates for Kentucky Clients

Lexington law firm protecting employees’ rights for more than 20 yearsv

No one has the right to harass you at your place of work or deny you access to employee benefits. Armed with more than 30 years of experience, Edward E. Dove protects the rights of workers from abusive colleagues and opportunistic management.

Ready to stand up to big corporations

Edward E. Dove understands that employees are often hesitant to sue their employers or stand up for their wage and hour rights, particularly when their employers are large corporations. Edward E. Dove supports you through this stressful period of time and helps you receive the justice you deserve. We can assist you with cases involving:

  • Unemployment
  • Wage claims
  • Workplace violations
  • Unsafe work conditions
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful termination
  • Challenging discrimination in the workplace

    Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary characteristics that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:

    • Race
    • Sex and Gender
    • Pregnancy
    • Age
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Disability
  • By applying extensive knowledge of state and federal labor and employment laws, Edward E. Dove redresses the discrimination and levels the employment playing field.

    Fighting against sexual harassment

    You do not have to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, sexist comments, or degrading images and emails at your workplace. These are examples of sexual harassment, which is illegal. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position. Although women are most commonly targeted, men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. Responsible parties can include coworkers, supervisors and the company entity. Harassment can take the form of physical contact, visual images, email transmissions, general derogatory statements or unwanted romantic overtures. Edward E. Dove advocates for your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
