Tips to find a good employment attorney in LA

May 14th 2014 at 11:55 PM

Los Angeles is home to a large workforce, offering job opportunities in dime a dozen. While employees enjoy a comfortable work life at large, there can be instances when they might feel wronged. For instance, do you feel your employer – former or present – has breached employment laws? Have you been wrongfully terminated or undergone wrongful disciplinary action for raising the flag on any illegal practices in the company? Are you not paid your wages in full and on time without proper explanation from the company for breach of payment? Are you being forced to sign an agreement with the company that you do not agree with on ethical terms? Then it is time for you to consider meeting an employment attorney.

So, how will an employment attorney help you? Well, as you know, employment laws have a sleuth of legal requirements and tight deadlines that need to be met. An employment attorney is well-read and has deep knowledge of these laws and their requirements. Hence, if you are set on filing litigation against your employer, an employment attorney will help you with all the paper work and ensure you meet all required deadlines with necessary documents. Besides, some companies may not take your allegations and demands for fair play seriously until you have a legal representative. Over and above, an employment attorney will ensure you earn yourself the best monetary compensation if you win the case. This service of an employment attorney is especially useful for people who find it uncomfortable to interact with the company’s management to discuss severance and other pay packages.

But how do you know who is the best employment attorney in Los Angeles? The perfect way to begin your search is by asking for referrals, looking up the local legal directory and checking on the Internet. A combination of all three will give you a fair idea on whom you can shortlist. Once you have a list of names ready, fix an appointment with each of them. Get all your documents ready before your meet the attorneys. During the meeting, ensure you and the attorney look into the finest details to ensure you actually have a case. Determine the prime cause for your distress – is it demotion or termination with or without compensation? Did you earn any monetary compensation before you left the company? Did you recently participate in the jury or military service? Were you on personal leave prior to the termination? Also, analyze your claims for discrimination. Are you the only one facing issues with the management, or was the same treatment meted out to a set of people? Would you like to file a group case or take it up as a solo fight? Once you have answers to questions like these, it will be easier for your attorney to assess all the papers and draft a strong case for you.

Once you decide on which attorney can help you in your best interests, fix another meeting to finalize the deal. Check on the legal fee and payment options. Some attorneys may charge a fixed rate, some others may ask for a share in the final settlement. Ensure your attorney is available for consultation on phone, mail and/or personal visits and check if you need to pay for these consultations too. Sign a contract with all these terms and conditions mentioned to ensure a smooth transaction between you and your attorney.
