Virtually every employer is subject to various federal and state employment laws. Our employment lawyers are there to guide business owners through the laws applicable to their business operations and their relationships with their employees with knowledgeable and practical advice. Our clients, both employers and employees, routinely call on us for guidance in connection with various types of employment related issues, including negotiating and drafting:

  • Employment agreements
  • Confidentiality, trade secret, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements
  • Employee manuals
  • Severance agreements
  • Independent contractor and consulting agreements

In addition, our attorneys are experienced in resolving employment related disputes through mediation, arbitration and litigation in federal, Connecticut and New York courts. We also represent clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Connecticut Human Rights and Opportunities Commission (CHRO) and the New York Division of Human Rights. We have litigated or arbitrated matters on behalf of both employers and employees covering issues involving breach of employment agreements, violation of non-competition agreements, discrimination claims, retaliatory dismissal, wage and hour claims and violation of whistleblower laws.
