Our firm is widely experienced in the areas of employment law as it applies to your unique case. Allow us to guide you through the next steps in your case. 

WHAT IS EMPLOYMENT LAW?

Employment law governs the rights and duties between employers and workers. Also referred to as labor law, these rules are primarily designed to keep workers safe and make sure they are treated fairly, although laws are in place to protect employers’ interests as well. Employment laws are based on federal and state constitutions, legislation, administrative rules, and court opinions. A particular employment relationship may also be governed by contract.
