Labor & Employment

Employment Law & Human Resources Advice

Our lawyers partner with employers to navigate the ever-growing and changing set of employment laws and regulations applicable to businesses. We have broad expertise with the ADEA, ADA, FMLA, Title VII, WARN and the other employment laws that impact the business environment. We advise employers on compliance and how to handle individual situations in a manner that minimizes risk and maximizes the employers’ workforce utilization.

Our experienced labor and employment attorneys provide a number of cost-effective legal services to help organizations minimize the likelihood of potentially damaging disputes and lawsuits.

We regularly provide day-to-day counseling to our clients on such matters as discipline and termination, job elimination and layoffs, including WARN Act compliance, leaves of absence and FMLA issues, accommodations under the ADA, background checks and FCRA compliance, religious accommodations under Title VII, drug and alcohol testing, hiring processes, performance improvement and retention, and affirmative action.

We have extensive experience developing employment, retention, non-compete, severance and termination agreements that are legally defensible and protect employers from future litigation. We also assist our clients with drafting independent contractor agreements and affirmative action related documents.

Our attorneys help clients develop and implement legally compliant employee handbooks, policies covering areas such as anti-harassment, the FMLA, electronic communications, social media, the FLSA safe harbors, drug and alcohol use, conflicts of interest, and mandatory arbitration. We regularly work with clients to ensure that their practices and employee handbooks minimize the prospects for employee legal actions and union activity. In addition, our attorneys review job descriptions for compliance with disability and wage and hour laws and review employment applications, offer letters and evaluation forms used by clients to help them minimize claims. We also audit client practices concerning wage and hour laws, personnel file maintenance, I-9 maintenance, records retention, and payroll practices.
