Employment Law Attorneys in Vallejo and Fairfield
What is employment law?
At the law firm of Favaro, Lavezzo, Gill, Caretti & Heppell, PC, our lawyers represent employers, employees, unions and other entities in a wide range of issues relating to employment and workers’ rights. Employment laws— sometimes known as labor laws— exist to offer workers certain protections from exploitation. Employment law issues typically arise when workers feel unprotected or exploited and are concerned about dangerous or unhealthy workplace conditions, unreasonable hours or responsibilities, their treatment by coworkers or injuries they suffer while on-the-job. Our attorneys work with clients, helping them take appropriate legal action to address their issues through litigation, communication facilitation and other mechanisms.
