Employment and labor laws affect every aspect of employers' relationships with their employees from the initial hiring interview through the exit interview. A company's human resources are one of the most important assets of every business. We help employers manage the legal issues they encounter in their day-to-day interactions with their employees.
Our attorneys are always available to advise and counsel your executive officers and human resources departments on critical employment policies and issues such as sexual harassment policies, independent contractors, employee discipline, and termination.
Counseling includes advising employers on covenants not to compete, drafting employment contracts, employee handbooks, sexual harassment prevention, confidentiality, privacy, termination, wage and hour, and immigration. We work closely with our clients on regulatory compliance issues and preventive measures designed to reduce liabilities and avoid troublesome situations. We also have attorneys who specialize in employee benefit plans such as 401k and stock option plans.
We focus on advising clients to implement policies and procedures to prevent employment problems before they occur. However, when problems cannot be resolved informally, our litigation attorneys are prepared to aggressively represent our clients’ interests. We have successfully litigated employment issues, including wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, wage and hour claims, and trade secret misappropriation claims before arbitrators, before regulatory boards, and in state and federal courts.
