Do I need an employment law attorney? While you can file many employment law claims with administrative agencies such as the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the Department of Industrial Relations and the EEOC, your claim may take many months to resolve and your recovery is likely to be small without an attorney's help. More likely, you will not be able to obtain a favorable resolution and your case will be so old by the time it is out of the administrative agency, no attorney will touch it.
