For all businesses, small and large, employment law is essential to the successful management and operation.  Yet the ever-changing landscape of employment law places an overwhelming burden on employers.  Failing to adapt, however, often results in dire consequences and costly litigation. 

At Erlingson Banks, we have experience in drafting employment manuals, human resource policies, and employment contracts.  In addition, we represent various businesses in employment disputes that arise including wage payment disputes, wrongful termination, and discrimination claims.

Our employment attorneys are not only knowledgeable about current employment laws, but they also monitor pending state and federal legislation to stay abreast of potential issues facing our clients.  For example, we are familiar with and monitor Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.  In addition, our attorneys monitor judicial decisions that affect our clients.  By doing so, we are better able to represent and advise our clients.  We focus on providing efficient and creative solutions to enable our clients to avoid litigation.  In doing so, we craft personal, effective legal solutions for the specific needs of each client.
