The firm's Labor and Employment practice includes the representation of employers in a broad spectrum of employment litigation, in addition to providing pre-suit investigative, evaluative and counseling services for clients. We take pride in working efficiently and effectively as an aggressive advocate and counselor with clients to resolve employment disputes by settlement or trial. Our firm also advises clients on the creation and implementation of personnel policies and practices, as well as negotiates and constructs employment agreements and separation agreements.
Typical employment disputes that our firm handles involve allegations of wrongful termination, sexual harassment, defamation, discrimination and retaliation, non-compete covenants, commissions, bonuses and overtime pay. Our employment cases may arise out of alleged violations of various statutes, including claims for violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which includes child labor laws, unpaid overtime, wage and hour claims; Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), comprised of retaliation for taking pregnancy leave, paternity leave, maternity leave, medical leave, or leave to care for a sick relative; Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA); and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), which includes race discrimination, gender discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, sexual harassment, racial harassment, national origin discrimination, religious discrimination, retaliation, and failure to provide a religious accommodation.
