Labor and Employment Law

The employer-employee relationship is important to an individual with special needs because it allows him or her to support a family. When this type of relationship goes sour, a labor law attorney can help the employee navigate disputes with their employers to ensure legal obligations are protected, such as making reasonable accommodations, fair employment practices, and honoring an employee or job applicant’s rights.
