Employment & Labor Matters
We work with employers on a full spectrum of employment and labor matters, which include negotiating and preparing employment agreements, the drafting of employee handbooks and manuals, consulting on personnel policies, independent contractor arrangements, severance packages and the protection of proprietary information. We counsel and educate our clients on “at-will” employment issues, new employment laws, required documentation and recordkeeping policies. We also explain the necessary procedures to utilize in employee counseling and termination, maintain employee diversity policies, sexual harassment training and other employment-related issues. If litigation or alternative dispute resolution become necessary, we will defend our clients from employment and other discrimination and sexual harassment claims, wages and hourly disputes, wrongful termination disputes and other employment and labor-related lawsuits before local, state and federal agencies or defend them in court, if necessary.
