Trying to pursue a workplace discrimination suit or wrongful hiring claim on your own can be difficult. Hiring an Atlanta employment discrimination attorney can make it easier to build a case and fight for your rights as an employee. An employment lawyer from our firm is ready to use all of our available resources to assist you.
What Can an Employment Lawyer Do For Me?
An employment lawyer can help you with many aspects of your case. They can:
Advise you on the law and your employer’s obligations: You probably are not an expert on employment law. You do not have to be if you have an employment lawyer. Your attorney can brief you on all facets of the law that apply to your case and tell you if your employer is doing something wrong. They can tell you about federal laws, state laws, and even local ordinances that can have an effect on your employment lawsuit.
Gather evidence: If your attorney believes that you have a case, they can begin to gather evidence that would bolster it. Evidence can include written correspondence, like emails, and testimony from coworkers who witnessed discrimination, sexual harassment, or another offense.
Advocate for you at every opportunity: When you hire an employment lawyer, you have someone on your side who is ready to advocate for your interests. Your attorney will help you fight for the best possible outcome and hold bad actors at your former or current place of employment accountable.
Act quickly to protect you: Sometimes it can be difficult to get out of a dangerous workplace situation. You may not be taken seriously by your employer on your own, but having a lawyer by your side can help get things moving if you need assistance sooner rather than later.
