There is no substitute for our experience in advising and defending clients on hot-button, high-risk labor and employment law issues involving sexual harassment, discrimination, immigration, social media, investigations, agreements, classifications, reductions in force, wage and hour, whistleblowers, government audits, retaliation claims, and violations involving the ADA, FMLA, and OSHA and other state or federal statutes.
