Employment lawyers play crucial roles for both employers and employees. Civil rights attorney Edward E. Dove, Attorney at Law, in Lexington, KY, explains how employment law attorneys help companies and workers with their workplace issues.
Here are three major tasks employment lawyers undertake for their clients.
- Employment Contracts: Unions and companies enter into collective bargaining agreements, employers enter into employment contracts with employees, and businesses make agreements with independent contractors. Employment law attorneys serve all of them by providing legal advice, drafting and reviewing contract terms, and negotiating agreements. They keep clients informed about new legislation and judicial decisions that may affect contracts.
- Administrative Complaints: Federal and state laws protect employees from workplace discrimination based on their race, religion, gender, age, disability, and other conditions. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights investigate discrimination claims and enforce the laws. Employment law attorneys counsel employees who file complaints with the commissions and represent employers and employees when complaints are filed.
- Litigation: Employment law attorneys represent employees who file lawsuits and employers who are sued for discrimination or civil rights violations, such as violating employees’ rights of free speech or free assembly. The lawyers negotiate settlements and prepare and try cases before judges and juries. Employment law attorneys also represent clients in mediation sessions and arbitration hearings.
