What An Employment Law Attorney Will Do For You

If you’re having problems with your employer, it makes sense to contact an employment law attorney for assistance. When you find a qualified firm, they’ll know exactly what to do. They can help you in the following ways:

  1. Case Review

    The first thing a lawyer will do once you contact them is discussed your case with you. They should offer a free case evaluation. They will determine if they believe you have a viable case or not. If they believe that you do, they’ll walk you through the next steps.

  2. Determining Statute Of Limitations

    One of the most important issues that your lawyer will have to deal with determining the statute of limitations. This is the deadline for when you have to file your lawsuit. If you miss the deadline, you might not be able to recover any compensation at all.

  3. File

    In most cases, you will have to file a claim with certain government agencies and obtain a right-to-sue notice before you can actually file a lawsuit. If a lawyer decides to take your case, they will know the process, and they will take care of this for you.

  4. Obtain Evidence/Discovery

    Once your case is filed, your lawyer will discuss what evidence you need to obtain and other pieces of discovery that they will request from the defendant. This might include emails, texts, employment contracts, other internal work documents, and more.

  5. Depositions

    Additionally, your lawyer will interview and take depositions from the defendant and other possible witnesses regarding the unlawful behavior that they engaged in.

  6. Negotiate

    Most employment law cases are settled before they actually go to trial. It’s crucial to find an attorney who is a skilled negotiator. You don’t want someone who will just take the first offer they get. You want to make sure that the lawyer you choose is experienced and knows how to negotiate but isn’t afraid to go to trial if necessary.

  7. Trial

    If a settlement cannot be reached, you want to make sure you have an employment law attorney who isn’t afraid to go to court. Find a firm with a proven track record of success. There are many intricacies involved in the trial process, so having someone experienced is critical.
