Hiring an employment lawyer
If you’ve been involved in a dispute at your workplace and want to take legal action, Davis Law Group can help. Disputes can look and sound very different between clients, so we make sure to get the whole story before taking on a case to ensure it’s worth pursuing.
Workplace disputes require an employment lawyer, meaning someone who specializes in the section of the law around workers’ rights, workplace safety, and other legal factors specific to people who are on the job. We know that you spend a lot of time at work and it’s what makes your living, so if something happens that interrupts your work that is beyond your control, it’s best to speak to a lawyer.
Types of employment law cases
Depending on the type of work that is being performed, different risks are involved. For instance, if you’ve been involved in an industrial accident, that falls under personal injury (which services we also provide). Employment law is not necessarily when someone is involved in an accident, but rather when someone is involved in something unfair and misrepresented.
Some examples of employment law cases we’ve taken include:
- Unemployment compensation: when an employer doesn’t pay out unemployment benefits when the situation calls for them to pay (i.e. loss of role, downsizing)
- Sexual harrassment: inappropraite behavior and/or sexual advances are not welcomed in the workplace and must be brought to attention
- Wage and benefit disputes: if your wages and benefits are not what was agreed upon and you’re looking to make that happen
- Workplace health and safety: if working conditions are not up to code, outwardly unsafe, or are causing physical or mental harm
- Wrongful termination: if you’ve been fired wrongfully and subsequent problems from that
- Workplace discrimination: being treated unfairly or differently based on gender, sexuality, age, race, or other personal factors
- Family and medical leave: if leave is taken and not compensated for, or if leave is not granted when it is contractually obligated to be
Generally, if you feel that your rights as an employee have been violated and/or your company has not lived up to their end of the contract, it becomes a legal matter.
We know it can be daunting to go up against an employer, but we want to make sure that all employees involved in workplace legal cases are fairly represented to get the justice they deserve. We’ve taken on big companies and small businesses in pursuit of what is right for our defendant.
Before taking on a case, we will discuss fees and timing to best determine what are next steps. We will advise anyone against legal action if we do not think it will work out in their favor overall being that litigation (often against bigger companies) can be expensive. Employment lawyers know that these cases fall on tough times, often financially, and we do our best to make it as affordable as possible. In the end, we want all of our claimants to settle with the compensation or appropriate actions they deserve.
