We represent management in all facets of the employer-employee relationship. Our employment lawyers counsel, train, and litigate all aspects of employment law. We assist clients to avoid litigation by counseling employers in advance of significant employment decisions, and we help our clients design programs and policies to foster positive employee relations.
Our experience includes advice and litigation in employment discrimination cases before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), state and local human rights commissions, and the courts. Our team’s experience includes arbitration of union grievances; job safety cases before OSHA; minimum wage and overtime audits by the Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division and litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act; cases under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act; and litigation of claims including wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation and violations of whistleblower laws. Our team litigates disputes covered by Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) and has experience as EPL panel counsel to various insurers.
We defend age, race, sex, national origin, disability discrimination and harassment claims. We defend claims under the state and federal wage and hour laws. We have obtained numerous defense verdicts and decisions. We do not get cold feet on the courthouse steps.
