Employment law is a broad area that encompasses all aspects of an employer/employee relationship. There are a variety of federal and state statues, regulations, and administrative and judicial decisions that are involved. Finding an employment lawyer who is qualified in the area you need is vital.
Many employment laws (such as those setting minimum wages) were enacted to be protective of workers. Other employment laws prohibits employers from subjecting employees to discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination.
There are different laws for different types of employees. As a federal employee, the laws that apply to you differ from those that apply in the private sector. One main difference is that a federal employee has access to administrative forums such as the EEO complaint process and MSPB. Whatever issue you are facing as a federal employee, it is important to have an attorney who understands the specific rights of federal employees.
Private sector employees also have rights they can enforce under the anti-discrimination statutes, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), and more. The employment law attorneys at the Federal Practice Group can also represent employers looking to make sure they are compliant with the applicable laws and who may be facing a complaint filed by an employee.
