I love the practice of law: the opportunity to listen to and help people, the learning involved on almost a daily basis, and the pride I feel in putting out the tremendous effort it has taken to not only become a lawyer, but become an excellent, professional, caring attorney. I have become known as The Inspiring Esquire. www.TheInspiringEsquire.com My practice focuses primarily upon discrimination in the workplace including The American with Disabilities Act.

My name is Michael P. Sullivan and I am an attorney in Louisville, Kentucky. The vast majority of my practice since 1990 has been (and remains) devoted to Social Security Disability matters. Disability is what I do and my staff is well trained in only this field of law. This field of law requires that a practitioner have (or be willing to obtain) an in-depth knowledge of a host of medical issues, as well as being adept at administrative law. My engineering background has provided a technology knowledge base that I can utilize to better prepare, track, and present cases. The...

Problems in the workplace?

Employment law governs the relationship between workers and their employers. This law, contained in federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions, specifies the rights and restrictions applicable to each party in the workplace.

This area of law regulates such issues as employee benefits, discipline, hiring, firing, leave, payroll, and health and safety in the workplace. It also encompasses non-compete agreements, retaliation, severance, unemployment compensation, pensions, whistle-blowing, worker classification, wage garnishment, work authorization for non-U.S. citizens, worker's compensation, and employee handbooks.

Both federal and state laws govern the relationship between employees and employers. Federal laws such as Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on certain characteristics. Many states have enacted their own laws similar to federal ones (and sometimes are more stringent). Cities and counties also can enact ordinances that affect employee rights, such as local minimum wage laws.

Employment lawyers can choose to accept only employees as clients, only employers, or both. Some attorneys focus on a specific area of employment law, such as workers' compensation, whistleblowing or discrimination, but many can handle a wide range of employment law issues.


Essential job functions: The fundamental job duties of the employment position that the individual with a disability holds or desires. The term essential functions does not include marginal functions of the position.

Exempt employee: An employee who is not entitled to the minimum wage or overtime pay protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
