Employment Law

One of the most rapidly evolving areas of the law involves human resources in the workplace. Employers are continually faced with new demands and challenges as local and state agencies and the federal government implement new or modified rules affecting employer-employee relationships. We keep abreast of these changes and provide counsel to help employers navigate their challenges efficiently and effectively. We have special experience with discrimination complaints, employee handbooks, employment-related contracts, compensation issues, and compliance with federal, state, and local regulatory requirements.
