The Elan Law Firm

Employment Law / Whistleblowers


THE ELAN LAW FIRM represents executives and other employees in employment-related disputes.

  • Severance Negotiations: We represent employees in severance negotiations and aggressively negotiate to obtain the maximum compensation for the release of any claims against an employer.  If negotiations fail, the firm has the experience and resources to pursue litigation from inception through trial and appeal.
  • FLSA Claims: The Fair Labor Standards Act establishes the minimum wage, overtime pay, and other standards affecting employees in the private and government sector. The firm’s Washington DC FLSA lawyers represent employees who have not received the adequate minimum wage or overtime pay pursuant to the FLSA.  If you believe your employer has violated the FLSA, call us to receive a free consultation.
  • Discrimination Claims: THE ELAN LAW FIRM represents employees who have been subject to discrimination in the workplace because of their age, disability, national origin, race/color, religion, or gender in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
  • Sexual Harassment: It is unlawful to harass a person in the workplace because of that person’s sex.  Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general.  If you have suffered sexual harassment in your workplace or were recently fired or demoted as a result of sexual harassment, contact us to discuss your case.

THE ELAN LAW FIRM also represents whistleblowers who have suffered retaliation under a wide range of whistleblower protection laws, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (protecting whistleblower disclosures about violations of SEC rules and regulations and other federal laws involving fraud) and the Dodd-Frank Act.  The firm has successfully recovered compensation for whistleblower clients related to violations of Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank. The firm also helps whistleblowers obtain awards or bounties through the SEC’s whistleblower program. Notably, to submit an anonymous claim to the SEC through this program, you must be represented by an attorney.

If you believe you may be entitled to claim a whistleblower reward or have been subjected to employer retaliation for reporting illegal conduct, contact our Washington DC whistleblower lawyers for a free consultation.
