Representing a Broad Range of Employees in the Industry

Our team possesses extensive knowledge of life sciences employment challenges, including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and medical industries.

Whether you’re a genetic engineer, biotech researcher, quality control manager, or medical science liaison, you have rights as an employee. We’ve represented many biotech professionals and understand each role’s unique challenges. Below are some roles we cater to.

Genetic Engineers

Genetic engineers are at the forefront of scientific discovery. However, they often face distinct employment challenges, such as disputes over wage and hour laws, unpaid overtime, or misclassification as independent contractors rather than full-time employees. Given the high demand for specialized skills, they frequently face challenges navigating non-compete clauses. Our team can help you navigate these challenges and represent your rights.

Biotech Researchers

The pressure of strict deadlines, losing patents, and the competition from biosimilars can often lead to employment challenges for biotech researchers. Additionally, these professionals often face disputes over non-disclosure agreements. But the good news is that we can help ensure your rights are protected and your work is valued.

Clinical Trial Managers

Managing clinical trials is a demanding job with great responsibility. Clinical trial managers sit at the nexus of research and implementation. However, the high-stakes nature of this role can often lead to legal issues, particularly when it comes to harassment and harmful performance pressure. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re facing work retaliation, a hostile work environment, or unsafe work conditions.

Quality Control Managers

Quality control managers play a critical role in maintaining high industry standards. However, this responsibility typically comes with legal challenges, particularly regarding retaliation for safeguarding industry regulations and safe work conditions. If you’ve been dealing with hostility and harassment or are considering blowing the whistle on unlawful practices, we’re here to fight for your rights.

Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs)

MSLs bridge the gap between scientific research and the commercial side of the business. However, these professionals frequently face complex employment challenges. We’re ready to advocate for you, whether it’s wage disputes, unfair work practices, or whistleblower retaliation.

Regardless of your role within the biotech industry, we understand that employment issues can be stressful and confusing. But Yormak Employment & Disability Law is here to guide you every step of the way.

Types of Employment Issues We Can Help With

Employment issues can take many forms, and they’re rarely straightforward. They can be personal, emotionally charged, and potentially damaging to biotech professionals’ careers. That’s why having an experienced employment law attorney is crucial. At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we’re equipped to handle various employment issues.

Wage Disputes

Whether it’s unpaid overtime, misclassification of your employment status, or simply not being paid what you’re worth, wage disputes can be quite frustrating. But our team has helped hundreds of Florida employees struggling with the legal side of wage disputes. You are in the right place to fight for your rights.

Disputes Over Non-Disclosure Agreements and Non-Compete Clauses

Given the nature of research, non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) are common in the biotech industry. But sometimes, NDAs and non-compete clauses can feel restrictive, especially when they limit the employee’s future employment opportunities or are overly broad in scope. We can help you navigate unreasonable NDAs and ensure your rights are protected.

Workplace Discrimination

Discrimination in any form is unacceptable. Whether it’s based on race, gender, age, disability, or any other protected characteristic, we’ll stand with you against workplace discrimination. It can manifest in various ways, including unequal pay, biased promotion decisions, unfair treatment, or even wrongful termination. But you don’t have to face this challenge alone.

Unsafe Work Conditions

Unsafe work conditions in the biotech industry can range from exposure to hazardous chemicals to improper handling of biohazard waste and non-compliance with regulations and protocols. Your safety should never be compromised for the sake of your job. If you’re working in unsafe conditions or your employer isn’t taking appropriate measures to protect employees, we can help.

Whistleblower Protections

Whistleblower protections are crucial because biotech often deals with sensitive information, advanced technologies, and materials that can significantly affect public health and safety, highlighting the importance of professionals who bravely step forward against wrongs. But these can lead to retaliation and even wrongful termination. If you’ve reported illegal, unsafe, or unethical behavior at your workplace, you’re protected by law from retaliation. We’re here to help you.

Wrongful Termination

In the fast-paced and high-stakes world of biotech, employers may sometimes resort to wrongful termination in the face of business pressures. For instance, an employee could be unfairly dismissed without proper cause or without following the correct procedures outlined in their employment contract. Being fired for an illegal reason can be devastating. But remember, you have rights. We’ll help you fight back against wrongful termination and seek the justice you deserve.
