Labor & Employment
Union negotiations, employer/employee disputes and other workplace related situations.
What is Labor & Employment law?
Labor lawyers work with unions and their members in matters governed by federal and state laws. They help manage such activities as union organizing, collective bargaining negotiations, and unfair labor practice charges. Employment laws pertain to non-union workplaces.
These laws include federal and state wage and hour laws, discrimination laws, and leave laws.
When should you hire a Labor & Employment lawyer?
You may want to consult with an attorney if you are having a dispute with your employer about topics as varied as a hazardous work environment, wrongful termination or discrimination. An employment attorney can help you through the process of filing a complaint or represent you in a dispute.
Employers may consult an attorney if they are being sued by employee, or as a resource to review any business decisions affecting employees. The lawyer can identify any potential legal pitfalls the course of action may instigate and provide advice on avoiding them.
Reaching out to a lawyer can preempt any issues or help you decide whether you have a case against your employee or employer.
