Employment

Employment issues are critical to morale and productivity. We have counseled clients in matters involving allegations of discrimination, wrongful termination, failure to accommodate disabilities, wage and hour complaints and investigations, and sexual harassment, and have vigorously defended these claims when pursued. In this litigious business climate, it is imperative for an employer to be well-advised on the state and federal laws that impact the hiring, supervision, and firing of its employees. From a litigation perspective, our lawyers can provide insight on how to draft employment contracts that will prevent or minimize the impact of future employment claims, and protect the company's interests in maintaining its trade secrets, client lists, and employees through covenants not to compete and anti-piracy agreements.
