What Is an Employment Dispute Lawyer?
An employment dispute lawyer practices employment law. Generally, they assist either the employer or the employees. When an employment dispute lawyer represents employers, one of the main objectives is often to prevent employment disputes from occurring in the first place. Proactive steps are put in place to properly manage the employer/employee relationship. This includes, but is not limited to the negotiation and drafting of an employment agreement that meets the needs of the employer and the employee.
An additional responsibility of an employment dispute lawyer is representing the employer if an applicant, current employee, or former employee files an EEOC dispute, ADA complaint, other regulatory issue, or lawsuit against the employer.
Employment lawyers also help employers develop their internal policies and procedures for employees, advise HR, and handle other crucial activities that help protect the business.

- Allegations of wrongful termination
