Welcome to my new blog. As indicated by the title, I am an attorney focusing my practice on Employment law. Employment law is the field of law that deals with the rights of
employers and employees in the workplace. It addresses issues like wrongful termination, sexual harassment, unlawful discrimination, disability accommodations, minimum wage, overtime, family/medical leave, safety/health and unemployment. In the legal field, it is distinguished from Labor law; Labor law deals with workplace disputes involving unions or other forms of collective organization. While I have experience in Labor law, and it may be addressed here and there, it won’t be the focus. Neither will Employee Benefits law be focused upon; that area deals with primarily healthcare benefits, insurance benefits, and pension benefits.
One of the reasons I love this area of law is that most of a person’s waking hours are spent at work, giving the most opportunity for important events to occur. Typically, the second question asked a person is “What do you do?” The answer, rarely, is “I collect model trains” or “I coach my child’s little league team”. Rather, it is “I am an accountant”, “I am a truck driver”, or “I own a small business”. Our jobs are part of our identities, and it makes
workplace disputes the most personal of all business disputes. I look forward to your questions and comments.
