Across the nation, employers face an increase in employment discrimination and other workplace related litigation. Regardless of the size of the workforce or the nature of their business, employers may be the subject of lawsuits. They must grapple with complex and often overlapping statutes that may contain pitfalls, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Our attorneys guide employers as they meet these statutory and regulatory challenges, assisting management in virtually every aspect of the employment relationship -- from reviewing application forms to negotiating and drafting separation agreements. We also offer assistance in union issues, drug and alcohol testing and affirmative action plans.
Preventing harassment and discrimination is more important than ever. To that end, we provide seminars and training that can be tailored to each client's workplace and we conduct audits to determine compliance with employment laws. While we emphasize counseling and preventive approaches, we also aggressively litigate employment matters in federal and state courts and defend employers in EEOC and other administrative proceedings.
