A labor and employment attorney can assist with a variety of issues related to your employment. If you have an issue that can’t be resolved at work, your labor and employment attorney will need some information from you regarding your employment, which will assist in your case. First, you will want to determine exactly what your case is about. Is it based on discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, a failure to get paid, or something else? Next, you’ll want to summarize your issue and bullet out the important facts. If appropriate, you might consider creating a timeline of events. This will not only help your attorney, but will keep the facts fresh in your memory. Finally, don’t hesitate to tell your attorney personal details that may seem embarrassing or unflattering. Anything you tell your attorney is confidential and it’s important for him or her to know and understand everything about your situation.
