Employment Law

Employment law involves employment discrimination litigation, including claims of race, sex, age, and disability discrimination. In my practice, I defend employers in litigation before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and in state and federal court proceedings. Other types of employment litigation include wage and hour cases, cases involving misappropriation of trade secrets, and suits to enforce Non-Competition Agreements (non-compete).

Another large component of an employment law practice includes counseling employers in all aspects of the employment relationship, from hiring through termination. In that respect, we advise employers on the following issues:

  • Workplace harassment

  • Disability Accommodation

  • Family & Medical Leave Act Compliance

  • Employee Handbooks

  • Human Resource Policies and Practices

  • Wage and Hour Issues

  • Drug and Alcohol Testing

  • Disciplinary Action and Termination

  • Reductions in Force

  • Employment At-Will/Wrongful Discharge

  • Employment Agreements

  • Restrictive Covenants and Confidentiality Agreements

  • Severance Agreements

  • Waivers and Releases
  • Unemployment Compensation Claims
