Employment issues represent some of the most complex and difficult situations facing business owners today. Even the most careful and dedicated employers can find themselves overwhelmed by compliance requirements or blindsided by a lawsuit claiming wrongful termination, work place harassment or violations under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

Our attorneys understand the legal minefield facing businesses, the complexity of the employer-employee relationship and the laws and regulations affecting that relationship. We have decades of experience counseling for-profit and nonprofit businesses of all sizes in employment matters. Additionally, we have successfully defended businesses that have been sued by a disgruntled employee or audited by the U.S. Department of Labor.

Whether your business needs include drafting or evaluating your employee handbook, drafting or enforcing non-compete/non-disclosure agreements, remaining compliant with state and federal regulations, developing an employment practices plan, negotiating a settlement with a former employee, or litigation defense, our experienced attorneys will work with you and for you to provide the best solutions for your fact-specific situation.

If you have any employment concerns regarding your business, don’t wait until it’s too late. Contact one of our attorneys today. The planning you do today can prevent current concerns from becoming future problems.
