The firm’s Labor and Employment practice provides counsel and representation for employers in all facets of labor law. Our attorneys defend claims involving alleged violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Equal Pay Act and FMLA, as well as wrongful discharge, workers’ compensation retaliation, negligent hiring or retention, implied contract claims, enforcement of non-compete agreements and breach of employment contract claims. Other claims incidental to employment, such as fraud, defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress are also central to the firm’s practice. Matters before regulatory and enforcement agencies, such as Workforce Commission hearings and EEOC or TCHR investigations, are vigorously defended to resolve matters prior to suit.
The firm’s Labor and Employment group also provides representation in labor relations matters, including union organization campaigns, labor contract negotiations, unfair labor practice claims, matters before the NLRB and labor arbitration involving disputes under a collective bargaining agreement.
