Madison Labor & Employment Attorney

Attorney Hayley Archer’s passion in life and in her practice is the right for all people to have safe and dignified work. She takes the time to help her clients understand their legal rights, so that they can make educated legal choices.

Attorney Archer stands tenaciously alongside employees who face:

  • discrimination based on race, gender, age, national origin, ability, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity
  • wrongful termination
  • hostile work environment
  • sexual harassment
  • retaliation
  • claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act
  • wrongful denial of unemployment insurance benefits
  • mediation

Not every employment matter involves a dispute. Attorney Archer also represents clients in severance negotiations.  She analyzes each client’s distinct situation, works with clients to identify unique objectives, and employs creative solutions to get her clients the best possible outcome.

For adults with medical conditions that make it impossible to work, or for children with disabilities, receiving monthly disability benefits can provide significant relief. Attorney Archer takes the time to thoroughly understand each claimant’s distinctive situation and carefully apply the law accordingly. With compassion and diligence, she helps claimants through the legal process, from application to administrative hearing.

Passion & Pragmatism

Attorney Archer represents every case with passion and pragmatism. Before law school, she worked in a range of jobs, from commercial insurance to waiting tables. This breadth of experience developed the knowledge, insight, and sensitivity behind her client-centered approach. She brings her enthusiasm for worker’s rights into the community, and she has spoken on panels on a range of issues including LGBTQ workplace rights and public interest law.

If you want an attorney who authentically cares about you and your case and treats you like a human being rather than just a number, I highly recommend Attorney Archer for your legal needs. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and gifted in human relations. I’m so thankful to have had her represent me, and would choose her again and again.
