Employment Contracts

Employment litigation is a general category within business litigation that describes a number of different employment disputes. The most common types of employment litigation include:

  • Wage disputes
  • Discrimination/harassment

  • Workplace safety
  • Worker’s compensation
  • Breach of employment contracts

Others, like discrimination suits, can be more complex, requiring a high burden of proof and lengthy discovery process. Moreover, some employment claims need to be brought before administrative agencies or arbitration courts. As such, it is essential to find a seasoned employment attorney to represent you.
