Should I Talk To An Employment Lawyer
Deciding whether or not you should consult with an employment lawyer about your situation can be a difficult. Generally speaking, most attorneys who represent employees do not charge for an initial consultation, which means that it should not cost you anything to speak with an attorney.
Unfortunately, the overwhelming number of issues that people bring to an employment lawyer are not something that will result in representation — the lawyer will not take your “case”. Most experienced employment lawyers know that for every 100 calls they take, only a handful will have any viable claim.
This is not to suggest that you do not have a claim! What’s important to understand is that employment lawsuits must rest on particular, often narrow, grounds. Most employees simply have gripes with their employers, not lawsuits.
If you believe that you have been treated unlawfully by your employer, you may submit your case using our Employment Law Match program. Participating attorneys will have the opportunity to review your issue and decide whether they would like to make contact.
IMPORTANT: If you do have a viable claim against your employer, you should know that the clock is ticking! In nearly every situation involving employment-based lawsuits, there is a time limit for filing a claim. If you believe you have a case, you should directly consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
