What do employment lawyers do? Should I hire an employment lawyer?

An employment lawyer provides support and advice to you as you navigate a potential case. A lawyer can explain your rights to you and gather information to determine if you have a case. It is important to provide any evidence you may have, such as emails, phone calls, pictures, or other things that can help your lawyer build a case. A lawyer can also explain your options, such as mitigation or negotiation, so you can determine the best way to proceed with your case.

How long does a lawsuit take?

First, a lawyer will need to determine if you have a case. Each case is different, and the time frame varies depending on the extent of your case. Some employment cases can take years to get to trial. The amount of money you win also depends on the specifics of your case. Discrimination victims can often get money for lost benefits, wages, and distress, but there are many exceptions to these as well. Once a lawyer determines if you have a case, they will be able to give you further details on how much money you could potentially receive.
