Hire a Freelance Employment Lawyer

Employment law is a law practice that covers rights, obligations and responsibilities within the employer-employee relationship. It includes all employment related issues like wages, workplace safety, equal opportunities and work place harassment. Employment lawyers are lawyers who typically specialize in employment law and represent either the employers or the employees.

What Does an Employment Lawyer Do?

Employment lawyers are important both for the employers and the employees. They execute common litigation activities like negotiation, legal writing, oral advocacy and counseling. They ensure that the right procedures are used for hiring, managing employee relations, handling disputes between employers and their employees, and the cessation of employment contracts.

Common employment law cases include unjustified termination, workers compensation, workplace discrimination, pension disputes, contract disagreements and work environment health and safety issues.

Employment lawyers also play a vital role in framing workplace policies and practices. They ensure that the firm is in compliance with all state and labour laws in their policy making. Employment lawyers can be seen in private law firms, law departments of corporate or public organizations, or even in nonprofit organizations.

Though typically associated with either a law firm or an organization, many top employment lawyers now offer freelance services online. One of the best employment lawyers can be found on online freelance marketplace such as Guru.

If you wish to hire an employment lawyer, make sure they can:

  • Advise the human resource department regarding employment issues.

  • Participate in merger and acquisition.

  • Independently draft, edit and negotiate basic contracts as well as handbooks.

  • Draft and review employment contract.

  • Act as a mediator between employer and employee, if and when needed.

  • Advise clients about their legal obligations as well as rights.

  • Represent clients in civil lawsuits.

  • Draft compromise agreements.

Qualifications of Employment Lawyers

It is ideal for your freelancer to have the following skills:

  • A valid law degree and license to practice law

  • Strong research skills

  • Strong written and oral communication skills

  • Strong analytical and drafting skills

  • Ability to work well independently and with a team

  • Knowledge of labor and employment laws of the given location

Benefits of Freelance Employment Lawyer

A freelance employment lawyer provides all the necessary services and yet charges lesser than a law firm. If you have a small job that needs to be done, like draft an employee memo, then a freelance employment lawyer is your best bet as they can turn the job around much faster. A freelance employment lawyer can act as a mediator and is well connected with other professionals in the legal system which could be beneficial for the client.
