Workers’ Compensation and Employment Law Issues
Employment law covers a complex network of laws that control how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. It provides rights and obligations for both employers and employees.
Our Employment Law Practice Group has significant experience in interpreting and construing state and federal statutes and case law in areas such as employment discrimination, affirmative action, sexual harassment, employee benefits, whistleblower litigation, wrongful discharge, employment contracts, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and special laws governing municipal employment.
Our attorneys advise and represent clients based on the merit of the case before us. We identify liability on the part of employers and employees in employment contracts, non-compete agreements, discrimination and harassment suits, and workers’ compensation matters. We defend our client’s rights while making sure the law works for them instead of against them.
