Our Labor and Employment Law attorneys expertly assist employers with all aspects of the employment relationship.
Our services include: drafting and consulting on the application process and offer letters; drafting and revising handbooks and policies; data privacy compliance; personnel file management; drafting non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements; advising on wage and hour issues; conducting internal investigations; advising on discipline and termination decisions; navigating reasonable accommodation, FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act), Workers' Compensation, leave requests and related issues; conducting workplace training for managers and employees; and negotiating severance agreements. We also counsel and represent employers undergoing wage and hour or other employment audits by the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office or the U.S. Department of Labor.
In the unfortunate circumstance that litigation results from the employment relationship, we vigorously defend employers against all employment-related claims at both state and federal agencies, such as the EEOC and MCAD, as well as in all Massachusetts state and federal courts.
For the unionized workplace, our attorneys are also experienced in labor relations matters, including negotiation of collective bargaining agreements; impact bargaining; interpretation and compliance with contract obligations; interpretation and compliance with the National Labor Relations Act; and prosecution and defense of interest and discipline arbitrations.
Occasionally, our attorneys represent select high-level professionals in connection with: offers of employment/employment agreements; negotiation and advice on non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants; representation before licensing boards; and negotiation of severance agreements. We will also prosecute meritorious individual discrimination claims on a contingency fee basis.
