Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
If you are involved in a dispute with your employer, your decision to hire an attorney or pursue the matter alone can have a direct impact on whether your employment rights are ultimately protected.
Your company likely has more resources at its disposal than you do. The company may already have legal counsel or will limit its exposure by hiring its own team of attorneys. In these cases, you may need an employment lawyer who can protect your rights and improve your chances of filing a successful claim, and litigate if necessary.
It can be difficult to decide whether an employer’s actions are illegal, and speaking to our attorneys can help you make this important distinction. We can also address concerns you might have about retaliation and more following filing your claim, and investigate potential wage and hour violations that may be creating hardships for you and your family.
How Much Does a Lawyer Cost?
We generally handle these cases on a “contingency plus” representation, meaning that the employer/defendant is obligated to pay our attorneys’ fees and costs (or a percentage of the clients’ recovery if our total fees are not awarded by the court).
Can I Be Retaliated Against for Filing a Complaint?
Retaliation against an employee who files an employment claim is strictly forbidden by law. Employers may not demote, reduce an employee’s hours, assign an employee an undesirable shift, reduce job duties, or give intentionally false poor performance reviews when a claim is filed. Employees may be entitled to additional compensation if their employer engages in retaliation.
The employment lawyers at Morgan & Morgan litigates numerous lawsuits involving labor and wage disputes in Fort Myers, throughout Florida, and nationwide each year. We are extremely proud of the results that we have obtained in assisting workers with employment claims.
