Litigation threats are not just external. Employers must be vigilant and follow a complex set of employment laws to ensure compliance and avoid common lawsuits for overtime violations, discrimination, and/or harassment.
Employment litigation often involves a myriad of state and federal regulations designed to govern the employer-employee relationship. Typical employment claims involve breaches of employment agreements, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and fair wage issues.
We have successfully represented both employers and employees in litigating a wide variety of employment claims. This often involves navigating obscure laws and overburdened government agencies, and clients need experienced counsel to guide them through the process. Employment claims typically involve sensitive / uncomfortable subjects, but we strain to make the process as painless as possible for our clients while simultaneously fighting for their interests.
