The most cautious employer will occasionally need help from a lawyer at one point or another. While you may be able to handle many employment issues without help, some matters simply warrant more legal expertise.

With rapidly changing employment laws and courts and government agencies issuing new opinions about these laws every day it’s clear that you may need to seek legal advice when dealing with employment issues. Here’s why:

1) Dealing with the complicated laws

Laws, at times are written in a way that can be confusing and filled with legal terms that can seem like a foreign language. An attorney can read through the legalese and help you understand the law in simple terms, making it easy to determine whether you have a case and the best way to pursue a cause of action.

2) Discovery

When strategizing, attorneys review voluminous amounts of discovery documents. Attorneys and their staff have a trained eye to determine what is relevant and helpful for your case. Furthermore, it can be challenging to track down witnesses, and an attorney can compel witnesses through subpoenas to answer questions crucial to your case.

3) Opposing and filing motions

When you feel you are a victim at the workplace, whether it’s for discrimination or wrongful termination, the last thing you want to see is your employer accusing you of misconduct.  Attorneys can swiftly file motions denying allegations against you that are untrue and damaging to your reputation.

4) Expert service

Attorneys can provide expert advice in your employment matter and have access to a network of experts in a variety of fields that can help. They are well versed in the nuances of employment law and can rely on past cases to help navigate through a very confusing area of the law. Attorneys also can evaluate your case quickly because of experience they have experience dealing with other cases like yours.

5) Summary judgments

An attorney can file a summary judgment in order to avoid the time and cost associated with arguing against meritless claims against you. It also encourages settlements, as decided by a judge, thereby removing from a jury the opportunity to make a hasty judgment affecting your future.
