What An Employment Lawyer Might Do During Your Consultation

by Yolanda Lane

Employment lawyers provide working individuals with the legal representation and help that they need. If you are an employee who thinks that your rights are being violated or who otherwise wants to take action against your employer, you might be thinking about hiring one of these attorneys. If you have scheduled a consultation, you could be wondering what to expect during that meeting. These are some of the things that you can probably expect the attorney to do when you go in for your appointment.

Ask You About the Details of Your Job

First of all, your attorney will probably want to ask you about the details of your job. These are some of the different things that they might ask you about:

  • What company do you work for?
  • How long have you had your job?
  • What type of position do you have with the company?
  • How much do you get paid?
  • What are the basic responsibilities that go along with your job?

Ask You About the Issues That You're Dealing With

Generally, if you are planning on hiring an employment lawyer, it is likely because you are dealing with problems at work. Of course, your attorney will want to know more about your issue. Some people hire employment lawyers because they feel that they are being discriminated against at work or because they feel as if they are being harassed. If you are dealing with this type of situation, make sure that you talk to your attorney about what you're dealing with.

Ask for Evidence That You Might Have

If you have been documenting any work-related issues that you have been dealing with — such as if you have emails from your manager that back up your claims, or if you have any other type of evidence — then you should be sure to provide this evidence during your consultation. This can give your attorney a better idea of what you are dealing with, and it can help them get started on your case.

Answer Your Questions About Employment Law

There is a good chance that you have questions about your rights as an employee. If this is the case, then you should definitely bring up those questions during your consultation. After all, an employment lawyer will know federal employment laws and any state or local employment laws that might impact you. For more information about employment law, contact a company such as Marko Law Firm.

Insights Into How Our Legal System Works

Hello, I'm Christina Miller. Have you ever been fascinated with why the law works the way it does? Ever since I was in junior high, I had an intense interest in anything related to our legal system, whether it be a crime drama on television, a judge show or a legal case covered on the news. I followed it all. As time progressed, I began learning about how the actual legal system worked and not just the fictionalized version of our legal system. This has lead me to start writing my own blog posts about law that I hope will help others.
