My employer had owed me 4 hours pay for 6 weeks and wouldn't return my calls. I contacted LegalShield, they sent a letter to employer and I received payment the next week.

End Workplace Harassment and Discrimination

If you have been the victim of discrimination or are currently experiencing any form of harassment at your place of work, you should contact an employment attorney. You don’t deserve and don’t have to put up with that type of treatment.

At the very least, a provider attorney can provide legal guidance you can use to properly document abuse, file complaints correctly and receive immediate relief. Should circumstances require a higher level of support, LegalShield's provider attorneys can review relevant documents, make a phone call or even write a letter on your behalf.

A LegalShield membership provides affordable access to provider attorneys who can help solve difficult employment problems.

Get the Money and Benefits You’re Entitled To

Have you been denied unemployment or workers compensation benefits? Has your employer failed to follow the Family Medical Leave Act? Did your boss violate your employment contract by failing to approve vacation or overtime benefits to which you are entitled?

Resolving disputes with an employer can be tricky. You don’t want to put yourself in jeopardy of being fired, but you want to receive what you're entitled to. By working with an employment attorney, you can have a trusted third party that understands the law and can handle the situation for you if needed.

Getting a provider attorney can reduce your stress and help you seek a favorable outcome. With a LegalShield personal legal plan, your provider attorney can not only provide advice, they can also review employment contracts, write letters and make phone calls to help ensure you get everything you were promised.

Have an Attorney Help You Win Employment Law Cases

Don’t go into battle unprepared or out outgunned. Employers have attorneys, you should too.

Whether related to discrimination, harassment, or financial compensation, many employment disputes end up in court or at a special hearing to be decided by arbitrators. Should this happen to you, you need competent legal representation to defend your rights and make sound legal arguments to win your case.

If you’re income has been negatively impacted, it may seem like a stretch to hire a private attorney to help you. With LegalShield, you can put your financial concerns aside. For a small monthly fee, you’ll have access to experienced employment lawyers that can make sure you get justice.

[My Provider Attorney] was super-prompt in replying to my request for help with a hearing. The topic involved workplace harassment. Not only did she return my first call in a half hour, but she allowed me to call contact her the day before an important hearing. [My attorney] reviewed a statement I was to submit and did major editing which strengthened my position. [His] knowledge of Title IX issues was a total asset in this matter and helped me effectively present my position in a way that was finally taken seriously.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long after I join can I use the plan?

You can use your plan as soon as your membership application is reviewed and your account is set up. The review process takes 12 - 24 hours (or less) from the moment you purchase your plan (on regular business days). Once accepted, you can be in contact with an attorney in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

Is hiring an attorney going to get me fired?

Even when you know you’re in the right, it can be frightening to think about having an attorney get involved with your employer. Will your boss get angry and terminate you? Will you get demoted or passed over for a promotion? While these are all legitimate concerns, if you’re having a problem with your employer or a co-worker, the first step is to get good legal advice. Speaking with an attorney is never going to cause a problem with your employer because it’s a private conversation and you are in control. 

If you and your attorney decide it would be best for you to handle the situation on your own, they can guide your actions. Should things spiral out of control, you’ll rest easy knowing you have an attorney who can fight back. Join LegalShield today and you can get advice from an employment attorney in four hours or less.

My union provides an labor attorney. Why do I need LegalShield?

If you have legal representation from a union or other organization that is not your own, personal representative, you should still consider having a private attorney on your team. While union provided labor lawyers may be able to help you resolve a situation, they are not your personal attorney and your access to them may be limited. Also, labor attorneys may have mandates from the union they represent and may not be solely focused on your personal rights and needs. A private attorney, like those from LegalShield, are 100% on your side and available to help with any aspect of your employment law issue for a small monthly fee.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average attorney in the US charges between $150 - $400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring an attorney directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having an attorney on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the attorneys in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages or avoid thousands of dollars in fees over what they would have experienced had they tried to resolve the legal issue themselves. Obviously every member and usage situation is different, but when used correctly, your membership can easily save significant amounts of money. Not to mention savings from our member perks.

Who is covered under the Personal Plan?

Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.
