Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
I am sorry this happened. I will do the following:
1. suggest options for pursuing a case
2. preparation tactics
3. way to find a local lawyer if you still wish to involve one but can save on fees by following steps 1 and 2.
You have a few options. Let me outline them. You can pursue a complaint in civil court. You may sue for losses suffered plus costs and interest. You can also file a complaint with the labor board and the attorney general office. You can threaten these options before pursuing and use for leverage. local counsel can also get involved! A lawyer letter alone can often bring about a settlement as the other side realizes that you are serious and gets concerned about its risk and legal fees.
You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. Good luck. Kindly rate me 5 stars.
thanks in advance.
