Firm's Employment and Labor Practice has two
principal components – counseling and litigation. Our
attorneys work with management, and human resources and
personnel professionals in connection with various employment
decisions, such as terminations and discipline, reductions
in force and restructuring, acquisitions and divestitures,
restrictive covenants, wage and hour laws and compliance
issues and preparation of policies, employee handbooks,
and employment contracts. We conduct audits of employment
practices and policies, and provide employer-sponsored
training concerning equal employment opportunity obligations.
the litigation side, our attorneys regularly handle employment
disputes in federal and state courts and before administrative
agencies for matters relating to employment discrimination
and harassment, wrongful discharge, wage and hour, restrictive
covenants, unfair competition, theft of trade secret, breach
of contracts and whistleblower claims.
We also represent clients involved with government contracts in connection with prevailing wage investigations and compliance issues.
Our attorneys also
handle traditional labor matters such as defense of unfair
labor practice claims before the National Labor Relations
Board, grievance arbitrations under collective bargaining
agreements, and collective bargaining.
The Firm also represents
