Labor and Employment Law
In addition, we routinely defend both private and public sector clients against individual and class actions brought in federal and state courts involving many different aspects of employment law. Examples of issues arising in recent cases include a Title VII Class Action alleging a discriminatory maternity leave policy, the dismissal of employees for cause, disability discrimination, civil rights and the First Amendment, cases involving dismissal of employees covered by policy manuals, appropriateness of a bargaining unit, allegations of unfair labor practices, wrongful discharge, the Fair Labor Standards Act, breach of contract and a covenant not to compete. Other issues that routinely arise are charges of employment discrimination, American with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, HIPAA and matters related to employee discipline.
