We approach employment relations proactively, helping clients to set up and maintain effective employment relations programs designed to minimize the risk of litigation in areas of:

  • Designing, documenting, and implementing workplace policies
  • Drafting employee handbooks
  • HIPAA Compliance
  • Plant closing and WARN Act counseling
  • Employment contract negotiation and preparation
  • Termination counseling
  • Harassment and discrimination training
  • Workplace violence prevention
  • Internal investigations
  • Wage and Hour, unemployment, and workers’ compensation counseling
  • Employee benefit and executive compensation plans

Even the best employment counseling cannot prevent all disputes from occurring, however. We practice and counsel before EEOC and state and local human rights departments in areas of discrimination based upon race, sex, age, disability, and non-compliance with family and medical leave laws.

We have successfully defended state law contract claims related to employee handbooks and claims for wrongful termination, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress alleged to have arisen out of employment termination.
