Employers are faced with more and more challenges in running their businesses due to the vast number of laws and regulations governing the workplace. An incorrect decision today may cost an employer a tremendous amount of time and money in the future. Our Employment & Labor Practice spans our six offices to provide a team approach to advising and defending employers on the most areas affecting employment, such as disciplinary actions, terminations, reductions-in-force, wage and hour issues, restrictive covenants, employment agreements, and various leave issues.
Our attorneys defend employers in state and federal court and before administrative agencies with respect to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, The Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the WARN Act, and other employment laws. We handle all aspects of your case including investigation, witness preparation, administrative agency proceedings, pre-trial, trial, and appellate work.
Training and educating supervisory staff on employment related issues will assist employers in reducing costs by preventing actions that invite claims by employees. We often prepare and review employment policies and procedures as well as provide training to management personnel.
