Employment & Labor
Employment law encompasses the manner in which employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants. Consistency and fairness are key.
Because the requirements in this area are complex with many grey areas, and publicly available resources are few and vague, our attorneys have developed an extensive practice of advising and problem solving for employers.
If you are in need of qualified employment attorneys to provide helpful guidance, good ideas, and skills to free your business from complicated employee situations, our effective lawyers have impressive experience meeting the legal needs of any size organization from single employee businesses to Fortune 100 companies.
When it comes to employees, from your very first hire through extreme growth, we are distinguished in handling issues throughout the employment cycle:
- Hiring & Termination Processes
- Employee Policies and Manuals
- Non-Compete and other Employment Agreements
- Equal Employment/Affirmative Action Agreements-Employee Rights
- Family and Medical Leave and other Disability Related Issues
- Collective Bargaining and Arbitration
We counsel businesses on their rights and choices under employment laws in order to guide them in avoiding future legal entanglements. And we teach clients about various employment documents from performance warnings and non-competition agreements, to benefits and stock option contracts.
Our goal is to resolve situations outside of court whenever possible—to this end we have many attorneys who have represented clients before mediators and arbitrators. In addition, several of our attorneys are well-trained in ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) and are retained routinely as mediators. More often than not, these techniques facilitate achieving the most beneficial result.
But when strength in court is what you need, we are ready and able to pursue your goals.
