Representation in Employment Cases
Unfortunately, it is no longer a simple matter to discipline or terminate a problematic employee without running the risk of having to respond to an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint or lawsuit alleging violations of any number of federal and state laws. Title VII, ADEA, ADA, FMLA, FLSA and ERISA are all part of the federal alphabet soup of employment-related laws which can ensnare an unsuspecting employer simply trying to do the right thing for his or her business.
Baldwin Haspel Burke & Mayer attorneys strongly counsel our clients to take steps well in advance of any actions in the form of policies and procedures as well as awareness to minimize these often costly mistakes. A brief pre-action consultation may save the employer years of litigation and associated costs. Trying to sort through related laws such as family medical leave and disability leave can confuse even the most experienced employers. BHBM is here to help solve these puzzles before they become problems.
If you are already faced with a problem, BHBM also defends employers and assists them throughout the litigation process.
