Employment dispute lawyer

Employment disputes are such disputes that usually arise between the employer and the employee when performing labor functions by the latter. From a legal standpoint, employment dispute is an unresolved disagreement between the employer and the employee on the application of labor legislation and other legal acts containing labor law norms.

Grounds and causes of labor disputes may be the following:

  • employment and dismissal; 
  • working conditions and labor protection; 
  • professional development;
  • relations of the team with the management; 
  • social guarantees.

No matter what the situation is, when facing an employment dispute, a legal adviser who will give clear advice on the best route to a solution is necessary. A lawyer will always help to settle an employment dispute with the least risks and ensure compliance with all legal requirements in a particular issue.

It should be mentioned that Russian laws allow any party to the employment dispute to resolve it by filing a claim to the court, thus initiating the court proceedings or by applying to the labor disputes commission. The most effective and successful protection of the rights and interests in court or out of court is impossible without a lawyer whose specialization is precisely labor law.

Besides, it should be mentioned that Russian legislation does not provide for the mandatory pre-trial procedure of settling a labor dispute. That is, a person who considers himself a victim can apply to the labor disputes commission as well as to the court immediately.
