Labor and Employment Attorney/Lawyer

If you want to deal with laws that primarily look into the workplace and the employees’ well-being, then you should highly consider submitting your curriculum vitae (or CV) to a legal recruiter at Boston Legal Recruitment for the position of either a labor attorney or that of an employment lawyer. These positions may sound similar, but they have their slight differences and they must be acknowledged before you write up and send your CV out to a legal recruiter.

Employment lawyers focus on the employees and their potential problems at their workplace as well as former employees and look out for their best interests. They see what is going on with the employees and see if they’re having any problems at all and if so, they’ll solve them if it escalates to the point where the case could go to court. The employment attorneys look out for the employees’ many problems that they don’t normally deal with, such as their pension retirement plans and occupational safety and health regulations.

They could also work for the employers since employment attorneys are usually with one company and look out for everyone’s welfare from the small guy down below to the top bosses. Employment lawyers help the company by keeping it from breaking any state and/or local laws. When sending your curriculum vitae to a legal recruiter, consider that most of the employment attorneys concentrate on either the employees or the employers, so picking one or the other in advance could help you in the long run.

On the other hand, a labor attorney only focuses on two things. Those things are:

  • Negotiation during a strike or other form of protest performed by employees
  • The whole collective bargaining process (done by good faith on by both sides)

These two things are the only things that a labor attorney would be covering, so remember that when you want to send your CV to any legal recruiter.

As different as their tasks are, the labor attorney and employment attorneys have very similar responsibilities since they’re working in the same field. They can act as:

  • Spokespeople (during the collective bargaining process and other negotiations along with meetings with the EEOC, human rights agencies that include unfair labor practice proceedings and other events)
  • Assistants (by reviewing the client-employee relationship in handbooks and other documents along with wage claims)
