Workplace Union Formation

This power is often used to win better pay and benefits for workers, such as health insurance and retirement benefits. Unions also work to protect workers’ rights by fighting for policies that ensure all employees are treated fairly.

Unions give workers the collective power to negotiate better wages and working conditions. This power is often used to win better pay and benefits for workers, such as health insurance and retirement benefits. Unions also work to protect workers’ rights by fighting for policies that ensure all employees are treated fairly. In addition, unions often provide training and education opportunities for their members. This helps employees understand their rights and how to advocate for themselves in the workplace.
If you don’t have legal representation where you work, you aren’t being paid as much as you can from your job. Lawyers never guarantee anything, but I can almost guarantee that if you work in a company and you are not represented by a labor union, then your employer is not paying you as much as possible. Jordan El-Hag, Esq. has helped thousands of employees go through the process of forming a union where they work. Over the past 16 years, after personally managing over 100 union organizing campaigns, there has never been a situation where employees have not improved their working conditions after securing legal representation in their workplace.
If there is one piece of legal advice, I could get my clients to take, it would be to form a union where you work. Unfortunately, this is the most underutilized law and one of the least understood by employment attorneys.

Why clients prefer El-Hag Law
Millions in unpaid wages on behalf of individual clients
Although we have litigated class action lawsuits, nothing makes us happier than handing an individual a check for tens of thousands of dollars. It’s a life-changing experience for most of our clients. That is why we focus on helping the most underserved people and take on the most challenging to win cases. We know how to win these cases and are not afraid to fight on our clients' behalf.
Experience representing employees on an individual or class action basis
Did you know that you could end up receiving less as being part of a class-action lawsuit instead of litigating your case individually? We have handled numerous cases where there are multiple clients, and we know when it would benefit our clients to be part of a class action or not. Generally, class actions benefit the lawyers more than the clients, and we will never put our interest before yours. We always keep our current clients' interests at the forefront of our decisions. Because we have experience handling class action lawsuits and individual lawsuits, we can help you make the right decision for your case.
Will take your case to trial if necessary
The truth is that most lawsuits settle. Many attorneys have no experience going to trial. However, we will. And because we will bring it to trial, we can get better settlements for our clients because other firms know we will go the distance.
Your case is handled by the same person from start to finish
How would you like it if the person who handles your trial is not the person who had all the experience of putting your case together from the beginning? Some law firms will have different people working on different parts of the case to make the firm more efficient. However, in the process, things can fall through the cracks. Not with us. One person handles your case from start to finish, so the representative is personally familiar with all people and facts.
There is an art to winning a lawsuit. How can a person know how a witness will behave at trial if they had no interaction with the witness before the trial date? It's impossible to be effective. These are the kinds of things most people do not know to ask when they are evaluating lawyers. But because we need to win your case to get paid, we make sure that your case does not fall through the cracks.
We care about you and your case
We don't nickel and dime clients for 1-minute phone calls. We put in the time to build relationships and educate our clients. We know this is a scary process for most people. Every client who has walked through our door has never been in a lawsuit before. We want to make sure you are comfortable and educated on what is going on with your case. We provide you with the right information to make educated decisions about your case. It takes time to build strong relationships, and we are happy to put in the time for you.
