Bianchi Brandt & Hale's employment law practice includes counseling clients on employment issues that occur in their day-to-day business operations, as well as prosecuting and defending employment related claims. Our attorneys assist clients with drafting and enforcing employment contracts, employee handbooks and manuals, restrictive covenant agreements, and trade secret policies.
Employment law disputes concern a wide range of issues, including: discrimination claims, sexual harassment, wage and hour claims, workplace safety, defamation, invasion of privacy, fraud, negligent hiring and supervision, and retaliation claims. There is a bevy of federal rules, including the Fair Labor Standard Act, the Employee Retirement Income and Security Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, as well as state specific rules and laws, which parties must navigate when forming, continuing, and terminating the employer and employee relationship.
BBH helps clients comply with these various rules and laws, and can assist with litigation that may arise between employees and employers or when governmental agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, investigates or prosecutes alleged infractions.
