Why Should I Hire an Employment Attorney? 4 Potentially Helpful Reasons

An employment attorney can help with employment cases

For those facing harassment in the workplace, hiring an employment attorney might be the right call for help.

An employment attorney can help with various cases around rights in the workplace, including:

  • Wrongful Termination (being unlawfully fired due to discriminatory reasons like race, age, etc.)
  • Discrimination (when people of a protected class are discriminated against)
  • Sexual Harassment (inappropriate or unwanted sexual comments or advances by colleagues)
  • Retaliation (when an employer punishes an employee for engaging in a legally protected act)

As an employee, you have the right to a safe workplace, free of a toxic environment. However, that right doesn’t necessarily stop employers or coworkers from illegally harassing you at work.

In cases of workplace harassment, there comes a time when you should consult with an employment attorney about your situation.

It can be extremely nerve-wracking to even think about this. You might fear negative ramifications from your employer. 

However, you don’t have to settle for a hostile work space. An employment attorney will help ensure your rights are not being infringed upon.  

Here are four reasons why you should hire an employment attorney:

  1. They are familiar with employment laws – there are many state and federal laws that serve to protect employees rights. As the country evolves, so do laws around employment. It can be difficult to keep up with any amendments. An employment attorney will stay informed about laws so they can best help you with your case.
  2. They work on your side – there are two sides to every story, and unfortunately, your employer and their team may not agree with your claim. It can be frustrating, especially when you know what happened to you. An employment attorney is your teammate through the journey.
  3. They will help gather evidence – for a successful case, evidence is essential. It can help prove your claim through documented materials. An employment attorney can help you build a case with supporting documents.
  4. They will do their best to get you the maximum compensation – while there is no set amount of compensation, an employment attorney will work to make sure you are being fairly compensated following a workplace case. Part of their job is to ensure you receive compensation, and they won’t settle until they believe you have reached the highest amount possible.

Hire an employment attorney for help following a case

At C&B Law Group, our Burbank attorneys share the belief that no one deserves to work at a place where they are discriminated against, harassed, or treated unfairly for circumstances beyond their control. 

Here are some examples for the aforementioned employment suits:

A construction company lays off 90 percent of its female employees, but keeps 90 percent of its male employees. The supervisor claims that men are stronger and can lift heavy objects better.  This is an example of wrongful termination.

You’re told you didn’t receive a job promotion because your degree is over 20 years old. You have been discriminated against because of your age.

Your supervisor continuously sends you sexually explicit videos of themself and often makes physical contact with you, even in front of others. This is an example of sexual harassment

A supervisor makes racist comments to you about a coworker. You report the incident to human resources, and the supervisor is suspended indefinitely.

The supervisor’s counterpart now belittles you, and has threatened to demote you. This is an example of retaliation.
