You may be asking yourself, "What is employment law"? and "What kind of employment lawyer do I need"?

Employment law is a field of law that governs the relationship between employers and employees.  Specifically, it deals with the rights of employees and the responsibilities of employers.  Employment law is a broad field of law comprised of numerous substantive topics regarding the employment relationship.  The topics are enacted into law by state and federal legislatures and codified by state and federal statutes and regulations. State and federal courts interpret these numerous laws creating precedent.  Administrative agencies such as California's Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the EEOC also enforce these laws alongside plaintiff-side employment attorneys.   

Employees face a wide range of issues and not all employment lawyers focus on or specialize in the same issues.  Therefore, it is important to find the right attorney for your situation and to know your options
