Employment Lawyers in Chicago Assert Workers’ Rights
Chicago employment law for employees
In today’s ultra-competitive job market, the pressure is on employees to accept employment agreements which may impose unreasonable obligations, overly broad covenants not to compete that severely restrict their ability to work for other employers when your employment ends, or accept violations of their legal rights in the workplace. The experienced attorneys at Goldman & Ehrlich can relieve that pressure with dependable legal advice and make sure you understand the obligations your employer is imposing on you. For more than 25 years, our Chicago employment lawyers have negotiated employment contracts and advised employees about their employment contract rights and options.
To have Goldman & Ehrlich on your side contact us today online or at 312.332.6733 and let us get started on your case right away.
Enhancing executive bargaining power
If you have received a tentative job offer, you may have questions about the fairness of the package the company is floating. An experienced employment attorney with current knowledge of industry standards can be a major asset. Goldman & Ehrlich regularly negotiates executive compensation packages from both sides, employee and employer, so we have up-to-date knowledge of trends in hiring. We know how to negotiate firmly and realistically to achieve your best results. We also manage exit negotiations for severance packages that reflect your positive contributions to company performance, uphold your contractual rights and preserve your good name in your industry.
Upholding workers’ state and federal rights
Under Illinois and United States law, workers enjoy protections from discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation. Though many Chicago employment law firms assist in these areas, the difference with Goldman & Ehrlich is our commitment to personal service from seasoned partner attorneys. We stay away from class actions where your case is subordinated to a larger group and named plaintiffs. We want the unique facts of your particular case to be aired and for you to receive a remedy that is appropriate for you as an individual.
Personal assistance from experienced partner attorneys
Whether we are negotiating terms of your employment or litigating workplace violations, Goldman & Ehrlich provides you with close, personal counsel from knowledgeable partner attorneys with more than 45 years of combined employment law experience. You have direct access to us; your case is never delegated to a lower associate. We stay with you from your initial interview through the successful resolution of your legal issues.
