For work and employment related issues, you need an “employment lawyer” or “labor law lawyer.” The terms are interchangeable.
A complex web of different laws and regulations protect workers in the United States, but many of them are unaware of their rights at the workplace. Some employers could take advantage of this lack of unawareness on the part of the employees.
If you are a worker in the United States, you must understand your rights and know that several potential legal actions can protect you against exploitation and mistreatment.
The awareness will not only protect you but also help you figure out what to do in a complicated or adverse situation.
The employment lawyers at The Nakase Law Firm are committed to upholding the standards of service set by its founder, Brad Nakase. We are committed to holding your employer accountable for any mistreatment and getting you fair compensation for the suffering their actions caused to you.
Common Legal Issues in the Workplace
Many issues can arise on the job, such as:
Harassment at Work:
Whether it is your employer or fellow employees who engage in sexual or other harassment at the workplace, you have rights.
There are strict laws against violence, but violence does happen in the workplace. All workers have the right to a safe workplace. A qualified employment attorney can help you get the justice you deserve.
The employer’s right to terminate the employees is not absolute; it is conditional. Your termination may be illegal given your situation, and you could fall into a protected class.
Some employers could take undue advantage of their employees regarding overtime e.g., unpaid overtime work or working off the clock.
Hour and Wage Issues:
If you believe your employer is not following minimum wage laws, or you feel you are not getting the money according to your work, consult an employment lawyer.
