Smith Mills Law daily assists clients with employment, labor, and employment-related issues. In our employment law practice, we support our clients, whether answering a specific question or defending the employer before local, state, or federal agencies.
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. Our section also has attorneys well-versed in employee benefits litigation (ERISA), with expertise found only in some 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.
