Business People Applauding
EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR

It is important as an employer to have the right tools, policies and compliance strategies in place. We guide employers through the maze of increasingly complex employment regulations and issues and help them avoid lawsuits.

We develop long-lasting relationships with our clients and help them sustain and grow their businesses by providing support with human resources issues in both the operational and legal contexts. We help our clients keep their employment policies up to date while cultivating a healthy and productive workplace. We negotiate, prepare and review employment-related documents such as employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, and non-compete agreements. We also negotiate and review these documents on behalf of employees.

 

When issues arise, we help address them before things escalate. Unfortunately, some employment disputes can only be resolved through litigation or arbitration. We have extensive experience handling cases involving alleged breach of contract, unlawful discrimination, sexual and other harassment, wrongful termination, and breach of non-compete provisions.
