Employment law issues impact the hiring and firing of employees, as well as the day-to-day interactions between employers and employees. Many state and federal laws regulate this relationship.

Our employment practice focuses on issues related to the following:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Human resources assistance
  • Hiring and firing decisions
  • Immigration issues
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employment discrimination
  • Severance agreements
  • Employment contracts
  • Unemployment compensation
  • Covenants not to compete

Disability-Related Employment Issues

Much of our practice centers on representing employees with disabilities and their employers. A variety of state and federal laws regulate the rights and obligations of employers and employees with disabilities, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

HIV/AIDS and LGBT Employment-Related Issues

Another important area of our practice is representing members of the LGBT and HIV communities and their employers.
