Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Expertise
The Family and Medical Leave Act guarantees qualifying employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave for the birth and care of a newborn or the adoption of a child, in the case of a serious health condition, or to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition. We have been successful advising individuals about their rights regarding the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and can help you resolve disputes between your family and your employer.
Experienced, Powerful Knowledge on Your Side
When prosecuting a wrongful termination, sexual harassment claim, or another employment claim, our attorneys will undertake a thorough investigation to determine all of the facts and compile the full measure of our client’s damages. While many employment disputes are ultimately resolved through a settlement, our team of litigators brings experience and substantial resources to every case. We will leverage our experience in both settlement negotiations as well as the courtroom when necessary.
Outside Legal Counsel and Representation for Employers
Our lawyers take a proactive stance when representing employers. With every employment decision you make, you put yourself at risk of litigation. Our experienced employment and labor law attorneys will help you minimize and avoid your exposure to liability. We help employers negotiate and draft the terms of employment agreements, employee handbooks, and collective bargaining agreements.
When representing employers in employment disputes, we seek to resolve disputes through the most cost-efficient method possible. Although litigation is often unavoidable, our lawyers will seek creative and innovative solutions whenever possible.
