Employment

Our Employment Group represents employers and individual executives in a broad spectrum of employment related transactional and litigation matters.

We advise large corporations and small businesses on compliance with applicable local, state and federal employment, labor and wage-hour laws, drafting employment policies and personnel manuals, employment applications, individual employment agreements, plant closing notices and agreements, termination notices, separation agreements and investigating claims of discrimination. Executives are assisted in negotiating all aspects of their employment contracts, compensation packages, as well as separation terms.

Our litigators handle both individual and class action employment cases. We have litigated cases successfully involving allegations of wrongful discharge, breach of employment contract, misclassification of individuals as independent contractors, trade secrets, confidentiality and non-compete agreements, negligent hiring and retention, breach of wage and hour laws and discrimination on the basis of age, sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability/handicap, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, compensation and benefits and virtually any other matter relating to the relationship between employers and their applicants, employees and former employees. These include cases brought under:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Civil Rights Act of 1866 (Section 1981)
  • The Equal Pay Act
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
