Senior management and Human Resource professionals today are confronted by a dizzying array of laws and regulations governing the relationship between employers and employees in the workplace. Lewis Johs’ Employment Law Group works closely with management to confront the challenges posed by these laws and regulations. We counsel our clients with respect to all types of matters, whether arising under Title VII, based upon a claim of discrimination in the workplace, wage, hour and retaliation claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and its State law counterparts, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), based upon an alleged failure to provide a reasonable accommodation to an employee. Mindful of the old adage that, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” our attorneys work hand in hand with employers and management to formulate preventive strategies to reduce the risk of potential claims for discrimination, sexual harassment, age and disability discrimination, and to educate employers and their employees, through hands on training, to follow the “rules of the road” in this complex area.
We have successfully represented clients in court litigation, arbitration and administrative proceedings in various federal and state courts and agencies. We have also represented parties to employment contracts, restrictive covenant agreements covering non-competition and non-solicitation and routinely prepare agreements to protect the legitimate business interests of employers in protecting confidential information and guarding against unfair competition.
Our client base is a diverse one, including large corporations, small and middle market businesses, construction companies, schools and municipalities. We have also represented individual clients in connection with employment-related issues. We provide sound, practical advice, focusing on how our clients can accomplish their objectives while minimizing costs and the risks associated with potential litigation.
