Georgia Employment Disputes Lawyer
A significant number of employees are not aware that they may have legal options to turn to when facing a dispute in the workplace. Employment is generally “at-will,” which means that an employer and employee can terminate and employment relationship at any time and for any reason. For example, with at-will employment, an employee who chooses to change career paths has the power to quit his or her position at any time. Likewise, an employer who wishes to hire all new staff may terminate existing employees at any time with an at-will arrangement.
When employment involves contracts, there are certain rights and obligations that both the employer and employee have. Even with a contract in place, many employees fall victim to breaches that cause financial harm. At The Vaughn Law Firm, our team of seasoned Employment Law Attorneys has vast experience handling a wide variety of employment dispute matters and have experience litigating such matters in court. Many disputes may be resolved through mediation, arbitration or settlement negotiations; however, it is essential to have a qualified team of litigators and trial attorneys in the event a case goes to court.
Employment disputes are not limited to disagreements over contracts, but also involve retaliatory behavior. For example, if an employee voices his or her concerns about purported illegal behavior, that employee has rights against retaliatory treatment, such as demotion or termination. Additionally, employment disputes may involve acts of discrimination or harassment, matters that can be very sensitive and contentious. With the assistance of a qualified attorney, employees who are victims of discrimination or harassment can fight to protect their rights and have their void heard.
