Employment Attorney Jobs
There are many opportunities when you search through employment attorney jobs. An employment attorney specializes in assisting both employers and employees by addressing the issues that can arise in the workplace.

An employment attorney, sometimes referred to as an employment benefit attorney, interprets and applies employment laws. There are a number of laws in place to protect both the employer and the employee on the federal state and even local levels. An employment attorney successfully navigates all these laws for the empoyer and employee.

Simialrly to other attorney positions, the employment attorney also follows the same educational path. They are reqired to obtain a BA from an undergraduate school and a JD from an accredited law school. Additionally, attonreys will be required to pass the bar exam in the state they practice in.

There are many different areas that an employment attorney needs to be aware of. Some of these areas include privacy rights, sexual discrimination, employment termination, workers' compensation, leaves of absence, retirement, wages and overtime, and discrimination issues based on age, gender, ethnic origin, etc. In fully understanding the many laws in place, an employment attorney helps minimize any risks of breaking those laws.

Employment attorneys are available for consultation when it comes to negotiating collective bargaining agreements and other issues that arise when working with labor representatives. Additionally, an employment attorney acts as a mediator as necessary and represents theirclients in civil lawsuits.

A typical employment attorney can make up to $170,000 although the median salary is around $144,000 and can be as low as $65,000. The wide range of salary is due to many different contributing factors such as state, employer and what cities these businesses are located in.

As an employment attorney, you must be highly organized because there may be many different issues that require your focus at the same time. You need to be able to prioritize your time and manage different cases. Additionally, you should have superior communication skills because the nature of this position often involves mediation to ensure that all parties are heard and treated fairly and according to law.

Regardless of the economy, there is always a need for an experienced employment attorney to protect the rights of all involved parties. Consider your preferences and interpersonal skills as you investigate employment attorney options.
