Our employment lawyers effectively assist clients to navigate the increasingly complex web of federal, state, and local laws that cover the employment relationship and to establish policies and preventative measures that foster a positive workplace environment. Our clients are in many businesses and industries, from start-ups to large corporations to not-for-profit organizations; from contractors to manufacturers, professional corporations, brokerage firms and pharmaceutical companies. They share a need for sound and practical advice that we provide on employment practices and issues.
For issues that arise throughout the employment lifecycle, we have the resources to advise our clients in making thoughtful and informed decisions that minimize the risk of subsequent litigation or government investigation. We provide both strategic and day-to-day counsel to our clients on employment matters including:
- Employee hiring, discipline and discharge;
- Harassment and discrimination complaints and investigations;
- Employment agreements, severance agreements and agreements for departing executives;
- Non-competes, non-solicitations and confidentiality agreements in order to protect trade secrets and proprietary company information;
- Creating and refining employee policies, handbooks, and manuals;
- Developing and conducting employee training programs;
- Medical leave requests and disability accommodations; and
- Wage-and-hour practices and audits.
Should a government investigation or legal dispute arise, our highly skilled and experienced team will work closely with you to formulate and implement an effective strategy with the goal of securing a favorable result, either through early resolution and pre-lawsuit negotiations or through forceful and effective representation during the litigation process. Robinson Brog attorneys have significant experience representing clients in federal, state, and agency forums, as well as mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
