It can sometimes be confusing to know what your options are as an employee who has been legally wronged by your employer. Most people are not litigious by nature and shy away from legal battles.
However, when your employer has violated your basic rights (such as a work place free from discrimination, harassment or retaliation), it is important to learn what your options are and what is the best course of action for your particular situation. For example, not every case may be litigated to trial. In fact, the majority of cases settle before trial. Some cases may not even require litigation, and might be best resolved through negotiation and an amicable settlement. Other cases may require filing complaints with a government agency first. All cases have unique statute of limitation deadlines which are extremely important not to overlook.
At SLF, we work stategically with our clients to navigate through complex legal issues in order to find the best course of action for each case.
