Labor and employment laws affect the full spectrum of the legal relationship between employers and employees. It begins with the initial hiring process and continues to expand into every facet of daily business operations, including hiring, hours, wages, promotions, terminations, and benefits. Labor and employment laws are complex and governed by federal, state, county, and sometimes city statutes or ordinances. Due to the complex nature of these laws, an experienced labor and employment attorney is critical for both employers and employees.
The Digesti Law Firm has successfully represented clients in almost all aspects of employment and labor relations from class actions against large corporations to hearings before the Employee Management Relations Board. The strength and depth of our labor and employment practice is our trial and arbitration experience ranging from aggressively protecting a single employee’s rights at trial to representing labor union members in all aspects of labor law.
In an area as complex as labor and employment law, a client needs an attorney who not only has the experience, but has been successful. At the Digesti Law Firm, we bring years of experience in trial, arbitration, and mediation to represent clients in matters including:
