Employment law embraces all aspects of the relationships between employers and employees, including hiring and promotion, compensation and benefits, discipline and termination. Employment relationships are subject to a variety of laws and regulations, including workplace safety, wage and hour requirements, prohibitions of discrimination and harassment, accommodations of disabilities, and collective bargaining. Common issues involve post-employment competition and disclosures, and rights to inventions.
Our lawyers advise employers and employees on their rights and responsibilities. We have prosecuted and defended claims involving covenants against competition, disclosures of trade secrets, wrongful terminations, discrimination, wage and hour violations, and other employment issues. We offer assistance to employers in auditing employment practices, correcting deficiencies, and developing manuals and policies. We have represented both employers and labor organizations in contract negotiation and grievance processing.
