How to find a employment lawyer in China

Workplace discrimination, wage and hour disputes and other employment issues can sometimes escalate into legal disputes. Hiring an employment lawyer to protect your interests can take some homework. Here are some tips to help you choose a China employment lawyer who will meet your needs.
When legal issues arise at work, it can be difficult to know what to do and where to turn for advice and assistance. A competent employment attorney will help you know how to proceed with your legal issue and protect your rights in court. Finding the right attorney in your community is the first step to resolving your employment issue.
Step 1:
Identify your specific work related legal issue. This will help you find an attorney who specializes in the specific employment field you require. If you are facing discrimination in the workplace, you should retain a civil rights attorney. If you are having trouble with your union, or your employer is violating your union contract, you will need a labor attorney. An injured worker will need to find a good worker's compensation attorney. An attorney who characterizes their practice as "employment law" should be able to help you with any work related legal issue, or refer you to a more specialized attorney.
Step 2:
Ask those lawyers you meet with about their employment law experience, specifically in the area that is of interest to you. See if they'll give you names of previous clients you could contact for additional information. Ask about their involvement in employment law activities, such as legal seminars and professional organizations.
Step 3:
Determine costs. Hiring an employment lawyer can be expensive. Make sure you question the employment lawyers you meet with regarding their hourly rates or whether they ever take cases on a contingency basis. Request an estimate of the fees and costs.
Step 4:
Trust your instincts. Your employment lawyer should listen to your issues carefully, be knowledgeable and compassionate and put you at ease. The more comfortable you feel with your employment lawyer, the more likely you are to establish a productive working relationship.
Of course, as an experience employment law attorney, I am confident to become your attorney and assist you to solve the legal issues you are facing.
