Labour/Employment Lawyer

Labour and employment lawyers can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests. Employment lawyers help resolve legal issues between employyers and their employees, such as those involving wages, workplace safety, discrimination, and harassment. These lawyers should preferably complete employment law classes while in law school.

Employment lawyers provide legal representation in cases involving workplace disputes or alleged wrongful workplace activity. Common employment law cases include unjustifiedtermination, workers compensation, workplace discrimination, and work environment health and safety issues. Employment lawyers represent employees or employers in lawsuits involving the workplace. Examples of employment-related legal issues include alleged wrongful termination and workplace discrimination. Lawyers work mostly in law offices and courtrooms, occasionally researching in law libraries. Full-time lawyers may have long workdays. Employment lawyers execute common litigation activities, including negotiation, legal writing, oral advocacy and counseling. These professionals must have a working knowledge of the legal principles that govern the employer-employee relationship. Employment lawyers must understand laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and workers compensation laws. Employment lawyers may be hired to represent employers or employees in unemployment cases, pension disputes, benefit claims and contract disagreements.
