Complying with constantly-evolving employment laws can be challenging – especially when new and complex legal issues continue to emerge.
Employment law is changing rapidly in all areas of the employer-employee relationship, including employee leave laws, wage and hour compliance, employee privacy and background checks, immigration, LGBT rights, labor relations, employee safety, and medical marijuana, just to name a few. Additionally, government enforcement agencies have been more active than ever, creating stringent new obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”), and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (“OSHA”). Our lawyers are experts in their field, dedicated to keeping clients informed about critical legal developments in these areas.
Our highly-regarded attorneys routinely offer advice about how state and federal laws affect the employment relationship.
