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 have helped many employers protect their trade secrets and intellectual property, drafted employment manuals and policies, and distinguishing independent contractors from employees. We have also represented many employees in resolving wage, discrimination, retaliation, and sexual harrasment claims against 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
- Severance and Release Agreements
We also offer employment mediation.
