LEGAL ADVICE WITH A BUSINESS OWNER MINDSET
Employment Relations Attorney
If you are in the middle of a dispute with an employee, then it might be time to hire an attorney with experience on employee-related issues. An effective and experienced lawyer can help you to understand the state and federal laws that involve wrongful termination, wage disputes, defamation, whistleblower protections and many other issues that may arise with employees.
It’s important to know when is the best time to start looking for a lawyer with the experience and why you need an employment attorney.
Why You Need an Employment Lawyer
Employment-related matters can range from discrimination and harassment, wages and benefits, workplace health, medical leave and wrongful termination. You may strive to be the best, most fair, employer in the world, but these situations can arise, get out of your control and suddenly you are the one in the middle of a litigation claim.
For example, you may be facing the tough decision to reduce the workforce. In the company’s best interests, you downsize to reduce spending. This change typically means modifying contracts, which leads to defensive employees.
All employees have a right to defend their own rights and during a downsize, when an employee’s job is on the line, employees will fight to uphold their employee rights.
An employment lawyer or a business attorney with experience in employment relations will help you review the complaint from the employee and help you make decisions based on the next logical course of action. We can help you decide to litigate or negotiate a settlement.
Keep in mind that not all employee matters require the advice of an expert employment lawyer. However, there are many situations that are so complex and challenging that it’s highly recommended you hire someone who’s familiar with employee-related laws.
