The old adage about “an ounce of prevention” being worth “a pound of cure” is perhaps nowhere truer than in the realm of employment law. Our experience shows that employment law and regulation can be one of the areas of greatest risk for businesses of all sizes—particularly in rapidly evolving, emerging industries. Our employment group helps clients avoid litigation by crafting company policies and practices that reduce risk. We advise clients as to their hiring practices and their policies concerning benefits, compensation, hours, leave, terminations and non-competition agreements. We assist with the preparation of all manner of employment documents, from employee handbooks to executive compensation agreements.
Our attorneys are experienced with litigating employment-related cases involving claims of discrimination, wage and hour violations, and breaches of non-competition agreements, as well as appearing for clients at administrative hearings related to unemployment benefits and compliance with other laws and regulations. In particular, we have considerable experience advising clients in highly regulated industries such as hemp, cannabis, food and beverage and e-commerce.
Contact us as soon as you think you may have an employment law issue on your hands. Waiting or acting without legal counsel can easily create more problems than it solves.
