Employment Law

Business owners are faced with a dizzying array of state, federal and local employment laws and regulations. When you hire employees, you are entrusting them with your confidential information and trade secrets, so you need to take measures to protect yourself and your business. Our firm will help you by:

  • Creating enforceable non-compete and non-disclosure agreements
  • Identifying methods for protecting your confidential information and trade secrets
  • Creating a custom report outlining how your organization can reduce litigation exposure.

We also assist companies with difficult employment-related decisions and defend employers in actions involving:

  • Discrimination and retaliation under the Civil Rights Act and Title VII
  • ADA – The Americans with Disabilities Act
  • ADEA – The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • ERISA – Employment Retirement Income Securities Act
  • FCRA – The Fair Credit Reporting Act
  • FLSA – The Fair Labor Standards Act
  • FMLA – The Family and Medical Leave Act
  • WARN – The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act
  • The Texas Labor Code
  • Workers’ Compensation plans and Non-Subscriber Compliance

We ensure that your employment policies not only comply with the law, but also provide practical solutions that meet your business requirements.
