Find a Tehama County Employment Lawyer
"Employment Law" encompasses a wide range of legal practices, many of which deal, in some form, with the laws that encompass employment relationships in Tehama County. It includes subjects like wage and hour disputes, ADA violations, employee contracts, and all the accompanying legal issues.
Matters which involve employment law are often emotionally charged and difficult. Attorneys can provide assistance during what may be a difficult time. Employment law disputes are also often complicated and may involve multiple different categories of employment law within the same case. For example, a wage and hour dispute case can include other employment law issues such as overtime pay and wage garnishments.
Employment lawyers often specialize in an area of employment law, which can include wage and hour disputes. Even when an attorney does specialize in one area of employment law, that lawyer is still able to handle any other issues which may be related to the claim.
Locating The Right Tehama County Employment Law Attorneys
There are several categories within employment law. The categories include issues related to payment, issues involving disabilities, and other issues that are related to employment. In some cases, issues from multiple subcategories of employment law are involved.
Many legal matters occur related to a person's job. Most people accept a position in hopes of having a positive work experience. There are, however, in certain situations, disputes that can arise which require the intervention of a lawyer. Issues related to an individual's job may involve wage and hour disputes, violations of the ADA, and wrongful termination.
Wage and hour disputes are often very complicated cases which may involve many subcategories of employment law. An employment lawyer will help to ensure their client’s rights are protected while their wage and hour dispute proceedings are going on. An employment attorney will also guide the parties in drafting a formal resolution that covers matters which they can come to an agreement on.
Some employment issues that can arise may be governed by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) if an employee has a mental or physical disability. For example, an employer may be required to made accommodations, including wheelchair ramps, handicap restrooms, and alternative communication methods. Employers are also required to maintain the accommodations they have already installed and update them as required by the ADA.
When an employee is terminated for an illegal reason, it is called wrongful termination. Wrongful termination issues may arise in an employment setting if an employee is terminated for illegal reasons, such as family and medical leave issues, retaliation, or discrimination. Even though the majority of employees are considered at-will employees and can be terminated for any reason, an employer still cannot terminate an employee for certain illegal reasons.
Additionally, different legal issues may arise that involve employment, including labor union issues, pregnancy leave issues, and company policy issues. Pregnancy leave issues are typically covered by the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Some individuals do not work for companies which are covered by the FMLA. In these instances, there may be state laws that govern pregnancy leave.
