Helping Employees Across Colorado
The Ramos Law Employment Division is an employment law practice with offices throughout Colorado. Our Denver employment lawyers serve clients who have been subject to unpaid wages, discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and more. Ramos Law serves clients in Denver County, Douglas County, Larimer County, Jefferson County, Broomfield County, Boulder County, Arapahoe County, and Adams County, including Wheat Ridge and Steamboat Springs, CO. We secure the results our Colorado clients expect and deserve.
The Ramos Law employment attorneys understand that wage theft and exploitation are certainly not problems confined to just one type or class of employee. For this reason, we make it our practice to act as both a compassionate ear and a strong voice for Colorado’s exploited workers. It is common for employees to not even be aware that they are being systematically deprived of large amounts of wages that they are entitled to under the United States, Colorado, and Denver area laws.
Under Colorado employment law, our attorneys can help you find out if federal and state laws apply to your wage and hour situation and fight to get you your unpaid wages. For example, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires employers to pay their employees minimum wage and overtime. Colorado law also requires employers to pay for all hours worked.
Over the past few years, news reports included various stories about hotel and restaurant workers joining together to demand better working conditions and higher pay. Wage theft, along with other unfair practices, however, is in no way restricted to the food service and hospitality industries. Employees of all industries – from wait staff to construction workers and professionals – can potentially experience exploitation by their employers.
People work hard. They deserve to be paid for all the hours they work including overtime (time and a half) for more than 40 hours in a work week. If you think you have been not been paid proper wages and overtime, we want to help you.
The team at the Ramos Law Firm can save you a lot of time finding out if federal and state laws apply to your employment situation. For example, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people who are disabled. Under Colorado law, it is also illegal to discriminate against an employee based on their disability.
If you think you have been discriminated against in the workplace, we want to help you. We can also help you if think you’ve been wrongfully terminated and/or have not been paid proper wages and overtime.
Although our country has definitely made excellent progress in the areas of equality over the past seven decades, workplace discrimination remains to be far more common than most would choose to believe. Additionally, this offensive conduct is not necessarily obvious. Instances of obvious discrimination based on gender, disability, race, national origin, and religion are regrettably widespread. Less obvious and even unintentional discrimination is even more prevalent. Even so, those who are lacking opportunities for employment or promotion depending on their association with a particular social group, or who lose their job due to such workplace discrimination, deserve justice.
Every day, people put everything they have into a job only to be discriminated against because of their age, disability, race, religion, gender, pregnancy, or sexual orientation.
Are you one of them? You have rights and protections. And you have the right attorney to help you.
We recognize the importance of having a job and being treated fairly at it. Put our expertise in employment law to work for you today. Contact us for a no-cost, no-obligation evaluation of your situation.
Unfortunately, sexual harassment and hostile work environments continue to be an issue in Colorado and throughout this country. Harassing behavior can happen in any kind of occupation and in virtually any industry. Only those who have experienced sexual harassment can genuinely understand the effects it can have. The truth is, many victims develop medical health issues because of the stress and some eventually wind up leaving their job even though they have done nothing wrong. Many endure the situation quietly for fear of being called trouble-making or overly-sensitive. Absolutely no one should have to work each day in fear that they will be confronted with mistreatment by their colleagues or managers.
Ramos Law firmly believes that each and every worker possesses the right to a workplace that is devoid of harassment and abuse. This is why our lawyers are ready to fight for those who have been victims of sexual harassment and hold employers responsible for allowing such conduct to occur in the workplace.

Wrongful termination law supplies the requirements for deciding whether or not the firing of an employee was appropriate, as well as the available solutions if it was not justifiable. This area of law is most focused on violations of employment contracts, whether expressed or implied. Put simply, these kinds of cases look at whether or not the employer was free to let the worker go, or if the firing was in violation of an arrangement between employer and employee.
Every day, people take pride in their work and rely on their paycheck only to be wrongfully terminated for illegal reasons.
Are you one of them? You have rights and protections.
The team at the Ramos Law Firm can save you a lot of time finding out if state laws apply to your employment situation. For example, under Colorado law, most employees are at will. However, if you were fired because you filed for workers’ compensation or turned your employer into a governmental agency for illegal acts, you may have a legitimate wrongful termination claim.
If you think you have been wrongfully terminated, you might have the right to financial compensation. To find out if you have a case, call Ramos Law at (303) 731-4477, or fill out our no-obligation Case Evaluation Form.
