Representing Employers In Labor And Employment Disputes

As an employer, you are bound to encounter legal disputes with employees. Defending against legal claims is a virtually unavoidable part of having employees. Regardless of your advanced preparation and attempts to comply with the relevant laws, employees may nonetheless bring claims alleging unlawful discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, unemployment, breach of contract, violations of federal or state labor laws or other theories of liability. These claims may threaten to undermine the stability and success of your business.

An experienced attorney can step in to protect your interests through a strong and strategic defense. At the law office of Stephen Kaplan, P.C., we defend employers throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

How We Can Protect Your Interests As An Employer

Our legal team has extensive experience representing employers before administrative agencies such as the Texas Workforce Commission and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We can also represent you in judicial proceedings or alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation and arbitration. We will thoroughly investigate the alleged legal violations to build a strong position. For example:

  • If your company has engaged in unlawful behaviors, we will work to mitigate the consequences of the legal action. We will advocate on your behalf to minimize the penalties, and we will help you adjust your employment policies to prevent future lawsuits.
  • If there is no legitimate basis for the allegations of unlawful conduct, we will aggressively defend your rights and protect your interests. However, we will always be mindful of the costs of defending these actions. We create legal solutions that are also effective business solutions.

Whether you need a lawyer to handle your employment discrimination defense, challenge a wrongful termination claim or help you enforce a noncompete agreement, we can effectively represent you.
