What is Employment Litigation?
Employment litigation is a type of legal dispute that occurs between an employee and employer regarding an employment or workplace-related concern. It includes issues with pay, overtime, and other situations where an employee endured unjust treatment associated with his/her job. It may include claims of discrimination or harassment.
Issues related to benefits (insurance, compensation, or pension), workplace safety violations and whistleblower protection are all included in an employee’s call for legal action in an employment litigation. Most litigations are a result of terminated positions. The employer’s actions are considered illegal if they were found to have taken biased actions because of an employee’s race, gender, or other protected status.
