Our practice also takes a proactive approach, seeking to create programs and policies through employee handbooks and training on sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation, and to ensure compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations. The wide patchwork of requirements under anti-discrimination laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, Sarbanes-Oxley whistleblower protection, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, COBRA and other similar laws require careful guarding of an employer's and an employee's rights.
Of course, the most successful resolution of a client matter seeks to avoid the need for otherwise unnecessary court or administrative proceedings, which are both costly and time consuming. Our practice seeks to benefit from wisely avoiding those situations, if possible.
Our significant experience provides counsel to employers and employees that allows them to best seek the appropriate course for their needs. This method often works well for employment contracts and severance negotiations. Where matters are not resolved, we are prepared to step in and represent the client with mediation, arbitration or litigation.
