EMPLOYER REPRESENTATION IN EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION
Our experienced trial lawyers have defended employers in a wide range of disputes:
- Sexual harassment
- Discrimination (age, race, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation)
- Wrongful termination
- Americans with Disabilities Act (failure to accommodate)
- Enforcement of noncompete and confidentiality agreements
- Wage and hour claims
- Unemployment compensation
- Family and Medical Leave Act
In investigating to determine your potential liability and response to the complaint, we will examine compliance with in-house policies, conduct of managers or employees named in the dispute, contract language and other relevant facts. We can then negotiate a discreet out-of-court resolution or prepare to fight the accusations at trial.
PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF EMPLOYEES
If you believe your employer has limited or violated your rights, our lawyers will sit down with you to assess your claim and possible remedies. We have represented employees in every type of claim and civil rights lawsuit, including workplace harassment, discrimination in hiring, wrongful discharge or constructive discharge, and retaliation for filing claims. We have also litigated claims for unpaid overtime or withheld commissions, overly restrictive employee agreements, and other issues regarding compensation, benefits or post-employment rights.
If you are suing for harassment or discrimination, we can advise on how to document the abuse and file a claim with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Once you have a right-to-sue letter, we can approach the employer to discuss a solution or take them to court to seek monetary damages for your economic losses and emotional distress.
