The Law Offices of Donald A. Green handles many cases involving employment law. If you are unfamiliar with what employment law is, we would like to give you a bit more information. In layman’s terms, employment law involves any case that concerns an employer and their employee. There are many different facets of this sort of law as it can benefit either party depending on what the specifics of the lawsuit are. The majority of the time, however, these cases are related to issues like wages, wrongful termination, workplace safety and discrimination in the workplace. Employment law attorneys work towards getting those who have been wronged in the workplace, the settlement that they deserve.
Those who work at a company or even interview there have certain rights and are absolutely protected by the law whether they know it or not. These rights are decided by federal employment laws, as well as workplace laws that individual states can implement.
Knowing what your rights are is extremely important as your career can be affected should something happen that you do not know is violating those rights. As much as we wish it wasn’t the case, things like discrimination, sexual harassment and violation of wage and hour laws still happen all the time in workplaces across the United States.
