Our employment law attorneys strive to provide a personal and comprehensive approach to employment law issues for our clients. Since employment laws can be implicated in many day-to-day decisions in the workplace, proper training of supervisors and decision-makers is critical and our attorneys are available to provide the necessary guidance and/or training as appropriate to our clients' businesses. Whether a client needs general advice and counsel, assistance with workplace investigations, or help responding to internal complaints, administrative claims or litigation, our goal is to meet those needs in the most effective and efficient manner.

A non-compete agreement provides that one party agrees to not compete with another party for a period of time. Such agreements may be entered into at the end of employment or may be a pre-condition to a new position or the start of a business relationship. Much like other contracts that deal with aspects of employment law, our attorneys are experienced in negotiating, drafting, interpreting, and securing enforcement of non-compete agreements.
WAGE & HOUR COMPLIANCE
Due to the increase in wage and hour litigation, payroll accuracy should be a top priority of employers in order to ensure compliance with the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) as well as applicable state law. Our attorneys regularly counsel companies regarding wage and hour compliance.
Our employment attorneys assist business clients with meeting proper notification requirements in situations involving workforce reductions or restructures.
