What is Labor and Employment Litigation?



What is Labor and Employment Litigation?


In a professional setting, there are several standards of conduct that must be met to ensure the safety, equal opportunity, and fair compensation of all staff members in the workplace. Labor and employment litigation refers to a lawsuit filed against an employer by an employee due to unjust or illegal work-based activity. Initially, suing a company for problematic workplace behavior may seem daunting, but with the right employment litigation team, a successful case is within reach.


Due to the case-by-case nature of employment litigation, there is not a template for what does and does not qualify for an employment lawsuit against an employer, nor is there a template for how to build a case. However, there are several common occurrences that may be used as a reference. In past employment lawsuits, employees have sued their employer over discrimination against race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or culture. This discrimination can present itself in difference of pay, opportunities, worker’s compensation, insurance benefits, or any other inappropriate action on the basis of social or economic status. Additionally, labor litigation may be applicable to cases of harassment in which excessive negative behavior is targeted toward an individual in the workplace. In most cases, employers retaliating against their employees violates at least one labor law.
