The Wilmer Law Firm – page 6 – Employee-Labor Dispute Attorney, Dispute Resolution Lawyer
Disputes between employers and employees can take many forms. They may include:
- Wrongful terminations
- Wage and contract disagreements
- Executive compensation
- Sexual harassment
- Age, race, disability, sexual orientation or other forms of discrimination
- Whistleblower claims
- ……and many others.
Employees are protected by a variety of laws that shield them from some forms of disagreements, but that does not mean a dispute won’t become heated and cause damage to an employee, the employer and everyone else in the workplace.
Instead of fanning the flames and making matters worse, many times it makes sense to try and strike a compromise for the good of everyone involved. A third party, such as a dispute resolution lawyer, is the perfect go-between who can keep the lines of communication open and keep both sides moving toward the best possible outcome.
We have handled a variety of employment workplace disputes, finding a good middle ground in many instances that preserves an employee’s job and an employer’s bottom line. We have handled contested proceedings dealing with almost every type of labor and employment law, including: the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1991; The Americans with Disabilities Act; the Family and Medical Leave Act; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act; the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act; the Fair Labor Standards Act; and many veterans’ rights laws.
We provide timely and relevant legal advice on issues and problems faced by employees and employers. Sometimes, we must deal with complex issues and conflicting employment laws which we do in a compassionate, yet forthright way. We help our clients implement solutions as quickly as possible so that any negatives can be mitigated promptly, allowing everyone involved to return to a productive and positive work environment.
However, when litigation cannot be avoided, we are vigorous in our actions and use all means necessary to protect our clients’ rights as we work through the dispute resolution process.
