Employment attorneys focus on the many laws concerning the relationship between employers and employees. If you feel your employer has treated you wrongly as an employee, or if you're an employer who needs to terminate an unsatisfactory employee, you may benefit from the services of an employment attorney. Some professionals, such as teachers, policemen, and pilots, belong to labor unions, which have specific negotiation and labor law procedures that protect union members. A labor attorney will know which laws apply to your particular situation and how you can take advantage of the laws to protect your rights.
