Labor and Employment Law


Federal and state employment laws impose legal obligations on every employer.

We represent employers and Labor & Employment Lawemployees in state and federal court with employment-related problems arising from sexual harassment, discrimination (age, race, sex, pregnancy, religion, national origin and disability), retaliation, whistle blower claims, EEOC mediations and disputes, wage and hour, overtime, back-pay and commission issues, Family Medical Leave Act disputes, and unemployment benefits. We can assist you in reviewing and negotiating employment, severance and non-compete agreements.

If you are an employer, we can provide counseling to assist your business with understanding state and federal laws that govern how prospective, current and former employees must be treated. Our goal is to spot and resolve issues before they develop into disputes. We can assist you in devising strategies and developing employment policies to reduce and avoid costly litigation. If a dispute has arisen, we can provide you competent legal representation in state or federal court.

If you are an employee and you feel you have been subjected to unfair employment practices, we can assist you in resolving the dispute. Whether you feel you have been discriminated or retaliated against, or you have been presented with an agreement that your employer wishes you to sign and would like to have it reviewed by an attorney, we can assist you.
