Employment And Labor Law Issues

When disputes or conflicts, or even potential ones, arise in the workplace — whether regarding benefits, hiring, firing, retaliation, harassment, or discrimination — it is important to have someone on your side who understands the law. The relationship between employees and employers is governed by a complex set of state and federal laws.

Not fully understanding employment and labor laws can create problems for employers, leading to time consuming audits and investigations by state agencies (e.g. the Department of Labor, the Human Rights Commission), contentious disputes and costly litigation.

Similarly, for employees who feel like they have been unfairly treated by their employer, it is important to have a lawyer on your side who understands the law, who can fight for your rights, and advocate on your behalf.

Whether you are an employer or an employee, when employment disputes or questions arise, you need counsel from an attorney experienced in employment law.
