Sophisticated Approach to Employment Litigation
As an employer, there are many steps you can take to minimize the possibility of an employee lawsuit. Unfortunately, there is no fail-proof way to avoid them. If a current or former employee has lodged a complaint with management or your HR department, initiated a complaint with an administrative agency, or has filed a lawsuit in court, it is important to seek legal representation immediately.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing employers in various employment related disputes, including:
- Employment discrimination and civil rights
- Sexual and other unlawful harassment
- Family and medical leave
- Wage and hour issues
- Employment contracts, including actions seeking enforcement of restrictive covenants and protection of trade secret information
- Unemployment compensation
- Wrongful discharge
We have successfully litigated cases in federal and state courts through summary judgment, trial verdicts, and appeals. We routinely represent employers in arbitrations and administrative hearings before federal and state agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, PA Human Relations Commission, PA Labor Relations Board, and the PA Department of Labor & Industry.
