New York Employment Law Information

Getting Through Labor and Employment Law Issues

Individuals are entitled to fair treatment during the course of their employment. However, situations at the workplace often occur that make people uncomfortable. If you are dealing with a labor and employment issue at work and want to learn your options under the law, you should reach out to a New York employment lawyer.

Different Labor and Employment Law Issues

Legal problems at the workplace can happen in a variety of ways. Labor and Employment Law related issues often involve sexual harassment, employment discrimination and wrongful termination of employment relating to gender, age, religion, disability, pregnancy, national origin or race.

It goes without saying, your job is one of the most important things in your life. Whether you are dealing with discrimination, harassment or a wage dispute, speak with an experienced employment attorney to ensure you understand the rights as an employee.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
