Employment law is an integral part of virtually every business organization. Our employment attorneys offer advice and counsel concerning personnel, employment and labor concerns as well as guidance recommendations with respect to employment manuals and procedures, unemployment and worker's compensation questions, wage and hour considerations, pay and benefit issues and hiring and discharge procedures. Services within this area of law include:
- Preparing independent contractor agreements, employment agreements and noncompetition agreements
- Advising clients on compensation arrangements
- Counseling clients on proper employment policies, practices and procedures
- Reviewing and advising clients on employment manuals
Our employment attorneys also have substantial experience litigating claims for wrongful discharge, discrimination on the basis of disability, age, sex and race, civil rights violations and violations of the Wage Claim Act. They are also accomplished in handling claims involving OSHA, ERISA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and understand their impacts on the employment relationship and working conditions.
