Employment Discrimination & Other Employment Related Issues

We represent both employees and employers in work related matters. Employment law is a growing area and many federal, state and local laws and rules affect the employment relationship. We represent both individuals and businesses in litigation. In addition, we advise employers on good business practices to prevent employee dissatisfaction and expense of litigation. We have handled a variety of employment and labor law matters including the following:

  • Drafting, negotiation and review of employment contracts
  • Preparation of employee handbooks and personnel policies
  • Handling of difficult employees, termination
  • Discrimination cases, including but not limited to sex, race, and age discrimination claims
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful termination and discharge
  • Wage and hour claims
  • Contract disputes

Employment litigation can be especially hard on small businesses because of the disruption and cost. We run a small law office, and are sensitive to small business concerns. We work hard to assist small business owners through the litigation process and to counsel the small business owner on good practices.

Our office has experience in trial and appellate courts and in alternative dispute resolution settings. Many employment law cases involve administrative agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and its local counterpart. We understand administrative law and have appeared in administrative tribunals on behalf of both employees and employers
