Attorneys Supporting Employees
We help you get justice…successfully
Labor law is very difficult for employees to fathom without the counsel of a specialized attorney. This is because both social and economic aspects are reflected in labor law; exactly these aspects are also the reason why this field of law changes so quickly.
In our capacity as attorneys and specialized attorneys for labor law, we help employees obtain justice. In such cases, we combine not only our years of experience and expertise in labor law but we also bring in specialists for business and civil law as well as many other legal spheres.
We review your employment contracts as attorneys and specialized attorneys
In addition to the general labor law regulations, an employment contract represents the basis of your working relationship. An informed examination of a contract’s design should always be in your best interest.
As specialized attorneys for labor law, we review and reevaluate employees’ contracts and advise clients regarding wording and passages, which are or could become a disadvantage for them. Similarly, it could also make sense to substantiate or even add paragraphs to your employment contract. This is how you, as an employee, can prevent expensive and time consuming litigation should any kind of quarrel arise at a later time.
Warding off written warnings and notices of termination
Have you ever received a written warning or maybe even a notice of termination from your employer? As specialized attorneys for labor law, we assist employees in defending themselves against written warnings and dismissals.
Written notifications of this nature often have no legal basis or applicable deadlines have not been adhered to by the employer. If a written warning or dismissal can not be directly avoided, we also represent employers in labor court. Due to our experience and wide-ranging legal expertise, our success rate in such cases is high. A possible third option would be to negotiate with the employer concerning a severance package or to effect an opportune time to withdraw from employment.
Labor law for employees is a vast field
How many vacation days am I entitled to? Is overtime allowed? What provisions concerning breaks apply to me? Can I resign without prior notification because my employer violated his/her fiduciary duty? In our capacity as labor law attorneys, we know that employees usually have numerous questions concerning their employment relationship that go beyond the scope of their contract´s design; they may also need to know how to deal with written warnings and dismissals. Even in these cases, we support employees using our vast and specialized legal expertise.
