When dealing with work issues, employees have their livelihood on the line. Work is also the place where they spend most of their waking hours. When their employer may be breaking the laws that protect them, they need legal help. A labor lawyer could help level the playing field when it seems like the employer has all of the power, and the worker has none. Labor laws give workers protections, so they are never powerless.
No employee has to put up with illegal conduct and mistreatment on the job. They have the ability to take legal action to protect the rights that the law gives them. At Minnis & Smallets, our labor lawyers in San Francisco fight to protect employees when their employers have broken the law.
