Our Employment and Labor Law practice group is a full-service group of leading employment attorneys that counsel and train both public and private employers on day-to-day employment issues such as discrimination in employment, termination and layoffs, wage and hour disputes, individual disciplinary problems and benefit-related matters.

We also conduct independent investigations into workplace complaints including, but not limited to, complaints of sexual harassment, retaliation and discrimination complaints.

Because not all employment problems can be anticipated or resolved prior to litigation, we also defend employers in front of a variety of local agencies, and federal and state courts. Where appropriate, we represent employers in alternative dispute resolution forums, including mediation and arbitration.
