There’s plenty to think about when it comes to being a good employee, from showing up on time to dressing appropriately and interacting well with others. 

But just as you consider what it is to be a good team member, it’s also important to ask what it means to be a good employer. And at the base level, an employer must follow state and federal laws that protect employees. 

That’s where an employment attorney comes in – their job is knowing those rules and then advocating for their client.

Contracts, Sexual Harassment, Wrongful Termination

An employment lawyer can help you through the whole process of employment, from negotiating contracts to wrongful termination settlements. Common reasons to have an employment attorney work for you include, among others: 

· Discrimination

· Sexual harassment

· Severance negotiations

· Wrongful termination

· Retaliation for reporting or objecting to illegal workplace behavior

· Wage issues

Your attorney can also represent you in mediation and any settlement proceedings to ensure you get the compensation or other remedies you need to be whole. They also make the process of filing complaints much more straightforward to navigate, especially with short time limits for employment-related claims.
