What are my rights as an employee and what should I do if I have an issue at work?
While there are federal laws that are used as a minimum standard in the United States, employment law varies widely from state to state. Issues that occur in the workplace and are regulated by employment law includes:
- Unlawful Termination
- Employment Contracts
- Garnished Wages
- Severance Pay
Finding a great attorney to represent you and is knowledgeable about employment law is important. All of the attorneys on our panel are licensed to practice in the state of Massachusetts and will advocate for you to ensuring that your rights are protected.
Termination, quitting, or retaliation is some of the consequences that occur when issues arise in the workplace. Our attorneys understand that it can be difficult to get sufficient legal representation while you are unemployed. As with other cases, our attorneys offer rates that are significantly lower than their competitors. In certain situations, attorneys can take your case on contingency.*
*The National Lawyers Guild Referral Service makes no guaranteed that an attorney will take your case with a reduced fee, flat fee, sliding scale, contingency, payment plan, or other forms of financial assistance. Many of our attorneys provide low rates and our attorneys cannot offer further rate reductions. When placing referrals, we are only able to screen attorneys based on their location and the area(s) of law they practice. The National Lawyers Guild is dedicated to non-discriminatory practices. Please be advised that requests for other considerations or specific characteristics of an attorney will NOT be taken into account.
