Labor and Employment
Sound labor and employment policies are essential to the successful management and operation of any business. Yet the ever-changing landscape of labor employment law places an overwhelming burden on employers. Failing to adapt, however, often results in dire consequences and costly litigation.
Our firm routinely provides assistance to clients on a wide range of labor and employment matters. Our employment attorneys advise and consult with clients on policies to prevent potential claims. We assist in non-litigation matters by drafting and reviewing employment manuals, human resource policies, hiring and termination policies, non-compete agreements, and employment contracts.
In addition, we have litigated employment disputes in State, Federal, and administrative courts including:
– Wage payment disputes and FLSA claims.
– Wrongful termination
-Discrimination claims including ERISA, EEOC, FMLA, Title 7, ADA, ADEA and LEDL
-Confidentiality agreements and non-competes
-Louisiana Civil Service disputes
Our employment attorneys are not only knowledgeable about current employment laws, 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 craft personal, effective legal solutions for the specific needs of each client.
