While there are a variety of reasons one may wish to consult with an employment attorney, here examples of situations in which one should consider doing so:
If You Are Experiencing Issues With Your Employees:
There may be many occasions in which you may need to consult with an employment attorney, especially when running your own business. Some of the most common workplace issues are the following:
- Wage and hour compliance and disputes.
- Issues regarding visas and immigrant labor.
- Help in drafting company policy statements, safety manuals, or employee manuals.
- Negotiating severance packages for terminated employees.
- Representation for disputes filed with employment agencies.
- Representation at collective bargaining negotiations.
If You Are Experiencing Issues With Your Employer:
Wrongful termination, retaliation, and wage and hour issues are some of the most common types of labor and employment disputes reported by employees. When an employee has a labor and employment dispute, the retention on an employment attorney can help to keep a potentially volatile situation more peaceful, as well as assist the employee in collecting the necessary information to prove their allegation. An employment attorney can also help in filing your complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for discriminatory practices, as well as with the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor for wage and hour complaints.
