Employment law covers every aspect of the employer-employee relationship, including applications, hiring, training, working conditions, wages, promotion, benefits, discipline, and termination. Federal law, state law, and agreements between the parties define the rights and obligations of the employer and employee. We help employers by protecting trade secrets and intellectual property, drafting employment manuals and policies, and distinguishing independent contractors from employees. We also represent employees in resolving wage and discrimination disputes with employers.
We draft and negotiate a variety of employment-related agreements, including:
- Offers of employment, employment agreements, and independent contractor agreements;
- Non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements, and invention assignment agreements; and
- Separation and Release Agreements
We also offer employment mediation.
