Our clients face employment, labor and employment-related issues daily. Our employment law section provides support for our clients, whether available to answer a specific question or defend the employer before local, state or federal agencies or in state or federal court.
The scope of our representation of clients covers a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, termination, discrimination and harassment, family leave and return-to-work matters,wage and hour issues and general labor issues. We also have attorneys in our section who arewell-versed in employee benefits litigation (ERISA), expertise not found in many regional firms.
Because of our employment practice scope, we are involved with all stages of employment-related representation, from drafting the employee handbook to counseling employers on developing and implementing employment practices, including conducting harassment investigations.
We are also called on to present to employer groups on relevant employment issues.
