Occasionally, health care professionals wish to hire an employment law lawyer who also works on licensure issues, but this would require an unusual combination of practice areas, and it may be difficult to find an employment law lawyer who also works on licensure issues.
An employment law lawyer will handle, for example, discrimination and wrongful discharge cases, including cases involving race discrimination, disability discrimination, sex discrimination, national origin discrimination, age discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, and religious discrimination. An employment law lawyer will also handle retaliation claims ‚Äî for example, when an employer retaliates because the employee filed a civil rights claim, or a workers’ compensation claim, or the employee complained about unsafe working conditions, or applied for family medical leave, or opposed unlawful conduct such as a civil rights violation, sexual harassment, racial harassment, and other unlawful activities. It would be unusual for an employment law lawyer to also work on licensure issues before the Board of Nursing, Board of Pharmacy, or Board of Medicine.
