The Crucial Role of Labor and Employment Lawyers

Russin & Vecchi lawyers can provide valuable assistance and guidance to both employers and employees in various situations. 

Here’s when you may need a labor lawyer:

For Employers

Employers need labor lawyers or employment attorneys even before their operations commence or they hire employees. Compliance with labor laws and other relevant laws applicable to their industry is essential, and legal professionals can provide valuable assistance. 

Our labor lawyers review and draft contracts and agreements, including employment contracts, amendments, and waivers. Additionally, our employment lawyers offer guidance on various aspects of labor laws, such as internal regulations, social insurance, taxation, workplace safety, and employee discipline or termination. 

Employers may also require the services of an employment lawyer in any disputes with employees, which may include:

  • Representation in collective bargaining negotiations with a trade union pursuant to labor law.
  • Defending against employee complaints involving discrimination or harassment.
  • Navigating the numerous procedures and steps required under labor law for unilateral termination or dismissal of an employee.
  • Violation of non-competition or non-disclosure agreements by the employee.
  • Disputes arising concerning wages or social insurance.

For Employees

At Russin & Vecchi, we understand that workplace issues can arise, and that’s where labor lawyers or employment attorneys come in to advocate for your rights. By contacting a labor attorney without delay, you can ensure the collection and preservation of crucial evidence to support your case against your employer.

Some of the circumstances where an individual employee should contact a labor lawyer include:

  • Getting injured at work and require help securing rightful compensation.
  • Encounter discrimination or harassment due to factors like pregnancy or nationality and seek to uphold your rights.
  • Face retaliation from your employer for asserting your rights under labor laws, such as union involvement or requesting due leave, and wish to respond.
  • Are unfairly terminated or dismissed, violating your contract or labor laws, and need clarity on your rights and potential actions.
  • Feel pressured by your employer into agreements that strip away your protected rights, and require guidance to safeguard your interests.
  • Haven’t received the benefits and entitlements promised in your employment contract or as mandated by labor laws, and want to pursue what you deserve.
  • Experience unsafe work conditions that your employer ignores, and needs assistance advocating for a safer workplace.
  • Undergo significant changes in your employment contract that affect your job terms, location, or scope, and seek to ensure your rights are respected during these changes.

By seeking the support of a labor lawyer, you are taking a proactive step toward safeguarding your rights, seeking fair treatment, and achieving the justice you deserve in the workplace.
