York Gaskill attorneys have significant experience in representing both individuals and companies in regard to what we believe is one of the most important present day concerns of all: the law of the workplace. As the filing of employment related lawsuits continues to escalate and state and federal law become more and more complicated, the need for outstanding legal representation cannot be overstated.
We also represent individuals whose employment-related rights under State or Federal law have been violated. Individuals who may fall in this category should understand, however, that while there are many wrongs that occur in the workplace or on the job, many are still not actionable under state law, since the bulk of employees are hired “at will.”
For that reason, and because of the large number of inquiries by individuals who believe they have been wronged, and because employment cases are generally more complicated than others and require more screening than usual, we generally charge a minimal consultation fee to determine whether an individual case is actionable (sexual harassment cases, however, do not require a consultation fee). While we bill companies and businesses on an hourly basis, individual cases may or may not be taken on a contingency basis, depending on the particular circumstances.
