The firm represents management in all phases of employer/employee relations, including administrative hearings and litigation. Our attorneys defend employers against lawsuits filed in state and federal courts by employees for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, discrimination, breach of employment contracts, wage and hour violations and other employment-related claims. We also defends employers who have been charged by state or federal government agencies for possible violations of labor and employment laws, such as wage and hour laws and employment discrimination laws.
The risk of costly litigation can be substantially reduced when employers think before they act; therefore, our attorneys focus on counseling employers in the following areas:
- Harassment and discrimination
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Compensation and strategic planning
- Occupational safety and health
- Recruitment and hiring
- Discipline and termination
- Wage and hour laws
- Workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance statutes
We also work with employers to draft and implement employment documentation, employee handbooks, supervisor manuals, confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, and severance agreements; to set up and maintain evaluation, discipline and termination procedures and documentation; and develop and maintain personnel files.
