Employment And Labor Laws Attorney
Employment and labor law is a broad area of the law that deals with everything related to the hiring and employment of people. Some examples of legal topics that are present in this realm are:
- Wage disputes
- Hour disputes
- Discrimination and retaliation claims
- Contracts, including issues related to contract breaches and to unfair contract terms.
- Reasonable accommodations
- Unions and the right to unionize
- Workplace safety compliance
Employment and labor law have considerable overlaps with business and commercial law. Whether you are an employer or an employee, you might find yourself facing multiple employment or other business law-related issues.
Protect Your Rights With Schatt Hesser McGraw
Protect your rights as an employee by taking legal action if your rights are violated. We are equipped to support you and your claim if you choose to file a claim against your employer. These rights are written into federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938.
Always try to resolve your legal issue with your supervisor or your company's human resources department before taking legal action. Document every interaction that occurs between you and either of these parties. If you cannot resolve your employment issue within your company, we can help you file your claim with the appropriate government agency. Document every violation you experience in as great detail as you can manage — this evidence is critical to supporting your claim. From there, we can work with your employer and the agency, whether it is the Department of Labor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to determine an appropriate settlement for your economic losses caused by the violation.
