Employment Law And Litigation

Employment law deals with the legal relationship between employers and employees, and claims that arise out of that relationship, such as wage and hour matters, wrongful discharge, and employment discrimination. For those employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, typically "labor law" applies.

Worden Thane P.C. has a rich history of advising employers in all aspects of the employment relationship, including drafting and reviewing personnel manuals and employee handbooks, and advising employers on discipline and discharge matters. Our attorneys also prepare employment agreements including confidentiality policies, non-compete and non-solicitations covenants, and separation agreements and releases. We have significant experience in helping employers chart the often confusing waters of individual employee rights. We help employers understand issues relating to employee privacy, including email, voice mail, telephone, internet use monitoring, drug and alcohol testing, threats of violence in the workplace, and lawful off-duty conduct.

We try to help our clients avoid lawsuits, but when necessary, we have defended employers in various litigation and alternative dispute resolution matters. We work aggressively to resolve the dispute successfully and efficiently.

Employers require certainty in staffing and employment decisions. We educate our clients on the rights and duties imposed by state and federal law, and the costs of litigating employment disputes. We understand that our client's purpose is to transact business, not engage in lawsuits.
