Why You Need a Labor and Employment Attorney
Everyone has the right to expect fair treatment during the course of his or her employment. However, situations frequently arise that make people uncomfortable in the workplace—or subject them to blatantly illegal treatment. While federal and state laws exist to protect worker rights, the subtleties of the language of the law and many exceptions make it difficult for workers to know or defend their rights.
The labor lawyers at Freking Myers & Reul LLC have extensive, up-to-date knowledge of the laws and how to interpret them. With more than two decades of focused experience protecting the rights of workers, we can handle a wide variety of workplace situations.
Accurate assessment of your case
Whether required to work unpaid overtime, passed over for promotion, or laid off, many workers believe their employers treat them unfairly. However, while laws exist to protect employees from these and other circumstances, the language raises many questions about the applicability of virtually any specific situation. During your evaluation, a labor attorney at Freking Myers & Reul LLC reviews your issues and applies them to the current laws to determine the validity of your case and the legal options available to you.
Skilled intervention with your employer
You may have concerns about handling your issues directly with your employer. However, with the backing of an experienced labor lawyer, your case may not require going to court. The labor attorneys at Freking Myers & Reul LLC can often resolve your issues with your employer before turning to the court system. We also have extensive experience using mediation and arbitration techniques for settling conflicts.
Recognized litigators in court
Whether pursuing justice in or out of court, each labor lawyer at Freking Myers & Reul LLC fully prepares each case for the courtroom, and our reputation for effective litigation precedes us. Opposing lawyers know we take our settlement demands seriously, and may choose to meet our demands in a settlement agreement rather than face us in the courtroom.
