Employment Law

Employment law includes a complex network of statutes and policy that govern how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. We have significant experience interpreting and applying state and federal statutes and case law in areas involving:

Employment discrimination
Affirmative action
Sexual harassment
Employee benefits
Whistleblower cases
Wrongful/retaliatory termination
Drug testing
Employee privacy
Employment contracts
Workplace violence and safety
Breach of non-compete and confidentiality agreements
Wage and hour law violations
Labor law
Education law

Our cases involve application of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), administrative claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and special laws governing municipal employment. We encourage the use of, and have successfully utilized, facilitative mediation and arbitration to minimize the time and expense related to resolving employment disputes.
