Employment Attorneys

The experienced attorneys within our Employment and Human Resources Law practice understand that employment law issues often arise unexpectedly and require immediate attention. We are committed to responding quickly and efficiently. 

Our employment attorneys work with businesses of all sizes and stages of development to help them understand and comply with state and federal laws that impact employers. Our experience covers a broad range of services, from helping new businesses develop policies and handbooks, to helping well-established businesses with downsizing. 

In addition to working with businesses, we regularly represent individuals in employment matters such as review of employment contracts, non-competition agreements, and severance agreements. 

Our experienced employment lawyers provide training, policy development, and assistance with investigations involving, for example:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (including employee classification and Wage and Hour issues)
  • NC Wage and Hour regulations
  • FMLA
  • ADA
  • ADEA
  • Title VII Discrimination and Harassment
  • Employee discipline and termination
  • Employee handbooks and policies
  • Employment Agreements
  • Non-competition and Non-solicitation Agreements
  • Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Separation Agreements

Although the goal of much of our work is to promote compliance and prevent disputes, we also represent employers in litigation when it becomes necessary. Our litigation experience includes matters in state and federal courts and before state and federal agencies, including: 

  • Wage and Hour
  • EEOC
  • Discrimination
  • Wrongful Discharge
  • Unemployment
  • Breach of contract
  • Non-competition
  • Unemployment
  • WARN act
  • OSHA
  • Workers’ compensation
