Employment & Labor: Employment Litigation

Best & Flanagan’s Employment & Labor team consistently delivers tangible legal advice and concise personnel guidance required to avert and overcome employment disputes on a day-to-day basis. Disputes do not occur in vacuum, and our ongoing advice both solves the problem at hand and affirms our client’s defense should a claim ensue.

  • Discrimination and retaliation concerns
  • Workplace harassment, including sexual, racial and religious harassment
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
  • Trade secret and confidentiality disputes
  • Unfair competition claims
  • Wage and hour cases
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complaints
  • Wrongful discharge claims, including breach of contract
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) claims
  • Employee safety and health concerns

In addition to courtroom work, we regularly represent clients in mediation, arbitration, agency actions and other dispute resolution forums. If our clients are drawn into litigation, we continue our customized and practical approach to aggressively advocate their position and provide creative solutions that achieve effective outcomes.
