When Should You Call an Employment Attorney?

Wondering whether you should call an Employment Attorney?  There are many different types of employment issues, and therefore different types of employment attorneys.  Here are some of the areas of practice for an Employment Attorney:

  • Employment Discrimination
    • Unequal Pay
    • Failure to Hire
    • Discriminatory Termination
  • Sexual Harassment/Hostile Work Environment
  • Employee Benefits
  • Worker’s Compensation
  • Workplace Safety

Before you meet with your Employment Attorney, you should put together all of the documents you have regarding your claim.  For example, if you have papers that show that you are getting paid less than others with similar jobs and qualifications, you should bring that with you.  If your boss has been sending you inappropriate e-mails, bring print-outs when you see your Employment Attorney.
