Employment Law

Employment disputes can be time consuming and costly. At Weiss Berzowski LLP, our employment law practice focuses on dispute prevention. We assist clients with such things as the hiring process, employee handbooks, personnel policies, employee evaluation procedures, employee discipline and employment termination issues, including separation agreements — all with the objective of preventing or minimizing the risk of disputes.

We counsel our clients on compliance with local, state and federal employment laws governing

  • recordkeeping
  • discrimination
  • individuals with disabilities
  • sexual harassment
  • wage and hour standards
  • family and medical leave
  • employee medical examinations
  • drug testing
  • layoffs and plant closings

When our clients are concerned about unfair competition from their departing employees, we advise them on ways to minimize that risk, including the use and enforcement of non-compete agreements, confidentiality agreements and trade secret policies. Even with the best preventive measures in place, disputes cannot always be avoided. We handle the full range of employment-related disputes before administrative agencies and courts at both the state and federal levels. We also represent municipalities and public sector clients in all phases of employment law, including discrimination claims, constitutional claims and grievance arbitrations.
