Employment Litigation

When litigation in an employment-related dispute is unavoidable, we bring the collective and extensive experience of our Employment and Labor team to defend against a vast range of individual or collective-action claims. We see our role as a partnership with clients, so we always focus on achieving their desired results in a cost-effective and strategic manner.

We work with companies in a variety of industries, as well as employment practices liability (EPL) insurance carriers, to handle cases involving cutting-edge concerns and the toughest issues employers face.

We frequently represent employers in state and federal court through various avenues of ADR, and before federal agencies such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration — as well as local and state agencies that address harassment, discrimination, retaliation, family medical leave, sick pay, and unemployment.

Our successful dispute resolution record spans the full range of statutes invoked during employment litigation, including:

  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (including Title III)
  • Civil rights laws, including § 1981 and § 1983
  • Equal Pay Act
  • Fair Labor Standards Act and state wage hour laws
  • False Claims Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act and state counterparts
  • National Labor Relations Act and state counterparts, such as New York’s Taylor Law
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act
  • Older Workers Benefits Protection Act
  • Title VII, state, and city anti-discrimination laws
  • WARN Act and state counterparts
