Employers today face expanding and complex employment legislation as well as a growing body of regulatory requirements that govern the employment relationship. Lawsuits brought by employees also are steadily rising, as are enforcement actions and audits by government agencies responsible for enforcing employment laws, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs.
In this environment, employers need experienced legal counsel capable of providing sound advice and strategies for avoiding liability. The attorneys in our Employment Law Practice Group have experience across the range of employment laws and routinely advise a diverse group of employers ranging from sole proprietors to multistate corporations across a wide range of industries. These industries include financial services, construction, mining, food service, hospitality, transportation, software, healthcare, pharmaceutical, and many others. Our attorneys believe that it is important to gain a thorough understanding of the client’s industry and individual business operations so they can provide advice that is not only legally sound, but also operationally and practically sound. We value close relationships with our clients and foster regular meaningful communication on employment law matters, because the best defense to a legal claim and its related costs is to avoid the claim in the first place.
