Protecting The Interests Of Employers Caught In Employment Law Disputes

At Robinson & Clapham, our team has years of experience helping companies and small business owners address and resolve employee disputes. By representing both employers and employees, we can see the both sides of an employment dispute and help reach an effective and efficient resolution.

The Best Time To Contact A Lawyer Is Before A Dispute Happens

Our attorneys can best help you and your business avoid disputes and claims with employees before trouble starts. We will assist with preparing employment contracts as well as reviewing your company's policies regarding wages, hours, anti-discrimination, etc. We understand federal and state employment laws and how they relate to your business. Our attorneys can help you draft contracts and policies that are up to date with the law and good business practices. By taking the time to draft sound employee documents, we can help minimize the effects of any potential disputes.

In addition to taking preventative action, we also assist clients facing wrongful termination, discrimination and sexual harassment cases. Some specific types of accusations we commonly see include:

  • Racial discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Discrimination based on sex or gender
  • Disability discrimination
  • Wrongful termination based on discrimination
  • Denial of unemployment insurance
  • FMLA violations
  • Sexual harassment

We understand the delicate nature of these cases and the impact a discrimination or harassment case can have on the environment of your workplace. By working closely with you, we can reduce exposure and achieve a timely solution.

We Want To Help Protect The Integrity Of Your Business

If you suspect an issue with one of your employees, especially if it involves a claim of discrimination or a wage and hour claim, it is important to contact an experienced attorney. We will review the circumstances and advise you on how best to proceed.

Employers that try to manage these situations on their own without legal counsel can often unwittingly make matters worse. Our team of attorneys can review your policy and help you understand your rights and obligations where your employees are concerned.
