Litigation, Advice and Training

In addition to litigation services, we provide training services and general advice. As an employer, it is important to have clear and concise contracts, postings, policies and handbooks. It is critical for managers and supervisors to be well informed about federal and state laws that prohibit harassment and discrimination.

In most interactions with employees, simple goodwill and basic consideration will suffice. However, there are complexities in employment law that require the attention of employers and supervisors. Many state and federal laws provide for the provision of treble damages and/or attorneys fees for prevailing plaintiffs in employment litigation, so one wrong step can be very costly.

Sexual Harassment

One area of employment law that has been the source of significant lawsuits (and plaintiff's awards) is sexual harassment claims under Title VII. It is important for employers to have a carefully planned and executed policy for handling sexual harassment complaints. Our firm assists employers in the drafting of company sexual harassment policies, workplace investigations and litigation.
