“Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing.

The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Employment and Labor

We represent employees and employers in a wide array of labor and employment matters.  In the last 30 years, we have seen an explosion in the number of employment issues involving federal and state laws, including wage and hour regulations; race, age and sex discrimination; pension, health and disability benefits; and family medical leave, to name a few.  At the same time, private employment contracts, restrictive covenants, and collective bargaining agreements have become more complex and contentious.

 

We have represented clients in all of these matters, and have a broad understanding of the rights and obligations of employment relationships, and the ways to protect employers and employees in courts, arbitrations and administrative agencies.  We also advise employers and employees how to protect their rights before a dispute arises, and how to avoid disputes altogether.  The productivity of your work force, the means of making a living for your family, are too important to leave to chance:  You need a lawyer to guide you through this complex and difficult region.
