Employment law

  1. 1. Employment Law What Is Employment Law? Employment law covers many areas of law that are related to employees, employers, employment, independent contractors, and workers compensation. Employment law includes both federal and state law that employers and employees must follow.
  2. 2. What Areas Does Employment Law Cover? Employment law covers a broad range of areas that exist in the workplace. An experienced employment law or workers compensation lawyer can assist an employee or an employer in the following areas: • Employment discrimination • Workplace harassment • Disability accommodations • Restrictive covenants and confidentiality agreements • Severance agreements • Family & Medical Leave Act Compliance • Unemployment benefits • Wage and hour issues • Human resources policies and handbooks • Disciplinary and termination issues
  3. 3. What Is Employment Discrimination? Employment discrimination laws apply to all procedural steps of employment, including interviewing, hiring, advertising, promoting and terminating employees. Employment discrimination laws state that an employer cannot discriminate against an employee or potential employee on the basis of certain characteristics like race, gender, age, national origin, disability, and religion. Some jurisdictions have extended discrimination protection to sexual orientation.
  4. 4. What Are My Rights As an Employee? As an employee, you are protected by basic rights, including: • Right to fair compensation, • Right to a safe workplace, • Freedom from discrimination and retaliation.
  5. 5. How Much Do Employees Have To Pay For a Lawyer? Many employees have a hard time affording an employment lawyer because they do not have a job and cannot afford legal services. Many employment lawyers know this and will work on a contingency fee basis. Contingency means that the employee owes the attorney nothing for the legal services until and unless the attorney makes a settlement or judgment on the employee’s behalf.
  6. 6. How Much Do Employers Have To Pay For a Lawyer? • Many employment law attorneys who are defending employers in a employment law claim or dispute will agree to work with the employer’s case on an hourly basis or a flat fee depending on the complexity of the case.
