If you are an employee dealing with a conflict at work, or an employer handling a workplace dispute, hiring a labor attorney may be your next step. A labor attorney provides a variety of services to employees and employers and can be beneficial in explaining employment law.  Below are some of the most common questions clients ask about labor law.

What does a labor attorney do?

A labor attorney can help explain rights to the employer or employee and navigate their case.

  • You have been harassed, discriminated, or retaliated against by your employer.
  • You find yourself being asked to sign an agreement waiving the rights you are entitled to.
