Types of Employment Lawsuits We Take On
There are numerous examples of civil actions involving employment disputes. The most common employment lawsuits in Los Angeles are:
A current or prospective employee believes their employer exhibits discriminatory or racist tendencies and hires or promotes employees in accordance with such beliefs.
An employee believes their superiors relieved them of their duties for reasons unrelated to their job performance.
One person or a specific group of employees opine that they are being harassed on the basis of issues such as gender or sexual orientation.
An employee believes they are being retaliated against for performing some type of action the employers did not approve of.
Selecting the Best Employment Attorney
A bad choice selecting an employment lawyer can have disastrous results and leave you without the results you deserve. Here’s how to find the employment lawyer best suited to fight your case:
Obtain Referrals – Prospective clients are urged to gather referrals from many different avenues such as friends, family members, and professional contacts. That said, the searching individual should not settle on only one choice. Several possible candidates should be identified and researched further.
Attorney vs. Employment Attorney – Legal professionals should have many years of experience trying cases and completing proceedings pertaining to employment law. Moreover, the lawyer should possess experience handling cases pertaining to the specific subcategory of employment law the client needs. For example, if said individual’s issue is workplace harassment, ask your attorney about the experience winning workplace harassment cases.
Research Thoroughly – The attorney chosen should have a list of satisfied clients and a history of winning or, at the very least, garnering settlements in previous cases.
Honest And Transparent Payment – Reputable employment lawyers will be clear and concise about their payment requirements. Moreover, said professionals should be willing to work out a fair and equitable agreement for those on limited budgets.
Effective Communication – Most successful lawyers are effective communicators who respond to their clients in a timely manner. When an attorney fails to respond to a client’s inquiries or does not keep said individual informed along every step of the preceding, serious red flags should be raised.
