What Types of Issues Does an Employment Attorney Handle?
At Friedland & Associates, our employment lawyers are skilled legal professionals who handle a wide range of issues and cases that revolve around labor and workplace matters. Their expertise extends to both employees and employers, addressing concerns and disputes that arise within the modern work environment.
Some of the common issues and cases that our employment lawyers handle, include:
Discrimination and Harassment
Employment lawyers often tackle cases related to discrimination and harassment, ensuring that employees are protected from unfair treatment based on factors such as race, gender, age, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. They help victims pursue legal action against their employers or colleagues and work to secure compensation for damages.
In cases where an employee believes they were unjustly fired, an employment lawyer can investigate the circumstances and determine if the termination violated labor laws. They may help employees file wrongful termination claims and seek remedies for lost wages, reinstatement, or other appropriate relief.
Wage and Hour Disputes
Employment lawyers address issues related to unpaid wages, unpaid overtime, minimum wage violations, and misclassification of employees as independent contractors to deny them certain benefits. They help employees recover unpaid wages and ensure employers comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
When employees face adverse actions, such as demotion or termination, for engaging in protected activities like reporting workplace violations or harassment, an employment lawyer can help them file retaliation claims and seek compensation.
Family and Medical Leave
Employment lawyers assist employees who have been denied their rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). They help employees take legal action against employers who retaliate against them for taking approved leave or interfere with their leave rights.
Negotiating and drafting employment contracts, non-compete agreements, severance packages, and confidentiality agreements are tasks that employment lawyers handle. They ensure that these agreements protect the interests of their clients while complying with relevant laws.
Employment lawyers can represent employees who have suffered injuries due to unsafe work conditions and employers facing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations. They help employees pursue workers’ compensation claims and guide employers in creating safer workplaces.
Whether through negotiation, mediation, or litigation, employment lawyers assist in resolving disputes between employers and employees. They work to achieve favorable settlements for their clients while avoiding protracted legal battles when possible.
Employees who report illegal activities or violations within their workplace, often referred to as whistleblowers, may face retaliation. Employment lawyers help protect whistleblowers by advocating for their rights and seeking remedies if they face adverse actions.
Class Action Lawsuits
Employment lawyers may represent groups of employees in class action lawsuits for issues like wage violations or discrimination. This allows employees to collectively seek justice and compensation for widespread workplace problems.
