Employment Litigation And Counseling

Our employment practice involves representation and advice on human resources and employment matters of all kinds. We principally represent management and businesses in the following areas: wrongful discharge, breach of employment agreement, discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation, compensation, ERISA and COBRA, covenants not to compete and solicit, whistleblower, and wage and hour. In addition to appearing in court, we routinely represent clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, in state and local administrative agencies, and in arbitrations. Regardless of the forum, we aggressively pursue our clients' cases, asserting their positions and protecting their interests.

At the same time, we understand that workplace disputes may be damaging to employee relations, and therefore consider, when appropriate, dispute prevention and alternative resolutions. We are well-acquainted with the most current techniques, and frequently make use of formal and informal mediation.

We regularly conduct internal investigations of sexual harassment, discrimination, and other misconduct. In sensitive situations, we carefully investigate allegations, interview witnesses, and prepare reports. Our clients rely on us to handle their cases with skill and discretion.

Outside of the litigation context, we provide strategic planning, training, and preventative counseling. In addition, we prepare employee handbooks, draft agreements, conduct work-place and sensitivity training, and consult on the implementation of employment programs and policies, human resources systems, hiring and termination procedures, and personnel management. We routinely counsel business entities on their employment-related agreements, severance agreements, and non-competition and confidentiality provisions.

From time to time, we also represent senior executives in connection with their hiring and separation, and other matters concerning the terms and conditions of their employment.
