Affordable Legal Support for Labour Lawsuits

Lawsuits filed against employers are growing substantially. Do you have the labour law support you need?

The Difference Between Labour Law and Employment Law

Employment laws regulate the relationship between an employer and individual employees and deal with issues like employment discrimination, harassment and making sure employees are paid for the work they have completed. 

Labour laws regulate the relationship between employers and labour unions, such as the AFL-CIO. Labour laws cover topics like the right to unionize and the negotiation and enforcement of collective bargaining agreements.     

Regardless of which laws apply to the situation with which you’re dealing, a small business plan from Legal Shield includes unlimited phone consultation with an experienced lawyer to help you understand your rights and determine the next steps you should take. 

Join LegalShield now and be on the phone with a labour lawyer in 4 hours or less after initial contact.

Diffuse Labour Disputes Before they Turn Into Lawsuits

Labor related legal issues can be difficult for small businesses to deal with on their own. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate your way to a positive resolution as they understand the intricacies of common labour laws such as the following.

  • Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH)
  • Black Lung Benefits Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment Act

As a LegalShield member, you don’t have to stress and guess about what the complicated federal and provincial labour laws mean or how to defend yourself. Simply contact your lawyer and they can not only provide you with valuable legal advice, they can make phone calls and write letters to diffuse small labour disputes before they turn into huge headaches.

He has been patient, helpful and always giving us great advice every step of the way. Today I called about some documents I have received wanting us to pay $450.00 in Corporate Minutes and Labor law issues. He told me that these letters were scams. He just saved us $459.00 today.
