Representing a Broad Range of Employees in the Industry

The finance and banking sector is diverse, ranging from investment bankers and market analysts to private equity managers and compliance officers. Each role carries its set of challenges and potential legal pitfalls.

The good news is that Yormak Employment & Disability Law only represents employees and has extensive experience working with a broad range of roles in finance and banking.

Investment Bankers

Investment bankers play a pivotal role in the financial sector. But with high stakes come high pressures — and sometimes, employers cross the line. Whether it’s excessive work hours, unfair compensation, or even harassment, we can help you assert your rights.

Market Analysts

Market analysts are crucial in finance and banking, providing insights that drive key business decisions. However, the demanding nature of the job can sometimes lead to issues like overwork, underpayment, or a hostile work environment.

Our lawyers strive to protect market analysts’ rights and ensure they are fairly compensated in their industry.

Private Equity Managers

Private equity managers oversee funds directly invested in private companies or engaged in buyouts of public companies. The job description may include everything from fundraising to operational management. They work under complex employment contracts that can lead to disputes.

It’s also not uncommon for these professionals to require legal assistance to address retaliation after whistleblowing or seek justice in unfair treatment cases. We have the expertise to help you navigate disagreements and issues from harassment and retaliation to employment contract violations.

Compliance Officers

Compliance officers uniquely identify and manage risk, ensuring that legal and regulatory requirements are met. Unfortunately, these professionals often need legal assistance addressing workplace retaliation after whistleblowing, resolving contractual disputes, and fighting unfair treatment or discrimination.

Our team understands the unique challenges that compliance officers face and is dedicated to safeguarding your rights and interests.

Types of Employment Issues We Can Help With

Many employment issues can arise in the finance and banking sectors. However, our team has considerable experience representing clients in this industry, addressing common issues across the spectrum.

U-5 Record Expungement and Defamation

A U-5 record can significantly impact a professional’s career in the finance and banking sector. It is a form that brokerage firms must fill out when a registered representative leaves the firm, voluntarily or otherwise.

This form includes a section where the firm can provide a reason for the representative’s departure, and any disclosures can tarnish the representative’s reputation, ruining future employment prospects.

However, it’s possible to have damaging information expunged from a U-5 record. This process can be complex and requires expert legal guidance. At Yormak Employment & Disability Law, we can help banking professionals clean their U-5 records. We understand the intricacies of the expungement process and work diligently to protect your professional reputation.

Unpaid Bonuses

The finance and banking sector often grapples with significant wage disputes. Frequently, these disputes arise from unpaid bonuses, Fair Labor Standards Act violations, or related labor laws.

When promised bonuses are not paid, it can impact your financial stability and sense of fairness. If you’re dealing with unpaid bonuses, we’re here to help.

Deferred Compensation

In the finance and banking sector, deferred compensation is a common practice. However, issues arise when employers fail to honor these agreements or when the agreement’s terms are unclear. If you’re facing a dispute over deferred compensation, our team of skilled Florida employment law professionals can help.

Garden Leave Disputes

Garden leave, a common practice in the finance and banking sector, refers to the period when an employee is transitioning out of a company but is still on the payroll. Employees are typically not allowed to start work with a new employer during this time. While this can be a standard part of employment contracts, disputes arise when terms are unclear or employees feel their rights are violated.

Employment Contract Disputes

Employment contract disputes can generate substantial stress for professionals in the finance and banking sectors. These disputes typically arise from issues with non-compete agreements, severance agreements, bonus structures, or other elements of the employment contract.

The complexity of employment contracts and the high-stakes nature of the finance sector can make these disputes particularly challenging to navigate, but our team can help.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is a pervasive issue that affects the finance and banking sectors. It is a severe violation of an individual’s rights as an employee and can take various forms. For instance, it can manifest as inappropriate remarks, unwanted advances, or even explicit requests for sexual favors. Such behavior is not only unethical but also illegal.

In the high-pressure environment of finance and banking, sexual harassment can often go unreported. However, it is crucial to remember that every employee is entitled to a safe and respectful work environment. We are here to support you and protect your rights.

Whistleblower Representation

Whistleblowers play a crucial role in maintaining integrity within the finance and banking industry. Claims frequently involve insider trading, fraudulent accounting practices, embezzlement, and other forms of financial fraud.

These brave individuals often put their careers on the line to expose unethical or illegal practices within their organizations. However, whistleblowers may face retaliation or discrimination for their actions, making it essential for them to have strong legal representation.

We stand up for whistleblowers’ rights, providing them with the legal support they need to navigate these challenging situations and seek fair compensation.

Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination often arises when job performance is closely scrutinized. Employees may be unfairly dismissed for various reasons. One common scenario involves an employee being given unrealistic targets and workload or not being provided with the resources necessary to perform their job effectively. When the employee inevitably falls short, they are then dismissed under the guise of poor performance.

Regardless of the reasons, wrongful termination violates an employee’s rights. If you believe you have been wrongfully dismissed, seeking legal counsel to protect your rights and interests is crucial.
