Employment Discrimination Defense
A focus of our practice is defending employers against claims of age, race, sex, national origin, disability or other forms of discrimination or harassment. We have extensive experience handling discrimination defense and appeals in all types of employee harassment claims.
State and federal laws and local ordinances regarding discrimination are constantly evolving. These changes place more obligations and regulations on employers regarding the hiring, promoting, disciplining and firing of employees in protected classes. Lawyer Stephen Kaplan has a thorough understanding of these changes and what they mean to our business clients. We will advise you on your obligations and legal rights as an employer, and help protect your interests in discrimination-related disputes.
Other Dispute Services
Other employment services include handling disputes that involve:
- Breach of contract
- Covenants not to compete
- Wrongful discharge
- Unemployment matters
- ADA, ADEA, EEOC, FLSA, FMLA and ERISA actions
Our thorough preparation for trial is a great asset and yields results for our clients. We do not represent a client in a business dispute assuming it will settle. Rather, we take dispute cases with litigation in mind, knowing that being prepared shows the other party that we are serious about obtaining a favorable resolution for our clients. That said, we recognize the benefits of alternative dispute resolution methods; we will resolve discrimination or other employment disputes through mediation or arbitration when it is in our clients’ best interest to do so.
