Common Workplace Issues
There are many issues that can occur in the workplace where counseling would be useful. Some of the most common workplace issues that require counseling include:
Providing Counseling on Employment-related Agreements
Employees in the workplace are frequently presented with employment-related agreements by their employers, such as employment agreements, non-competition agreements, confidentiality agreements, and non-solicitation agreements. It is important to obtain legal counseling to get a clear understanding of your rights and obligations under the proposed agreements.
Disability and Religious-Based Accommodations Requests
Employees who are suffering from disabilities or who require accommodations due to sincerely held religious beliefs have important legal rights in the workplace. As such, it is important to obtain legal counseling to make sure your employer is acting in accordance with the law.
Participation in Workplace Investigations
If you complain to management about workplace harassment or discrimination, your employer has a duty to conduct a workplace investigation about the allegations. As such, it is important to consult with legal counsel to prepare for your interview as part of the investigation. Conversely, if you are the alleged wrongdoer or even a witness to the alleged wrongdoing, it also is advantageous to consult with legal counsel in preparation for your interview as part of the investigation.
Workplace Harassment or Hostile Work Environment
If you are subject to workplace harassment or a hostile work environment, it can certainly increase your stress levels and have a negative impact on your physical and mental health. It is important to obtain legal counseling to help you get through these difficult issues.
Alleged Work Performance Issues
If you believe that your work performance is being unfairly scrutinized or that your placement on a work performance improvement plan is unjust, it is important to consult with an employment lawyer to determine the appropriate response based on the circumstances.
