Employment lawsuits present an obstacle to businesses trying to make prudent personnel decisions in this challenging economic climate. Regardless of preventative steps that many companies take, litigation is often unavoidable because of former employees’ refusal to accept the reality of their terminations. Hamilton Weber understands the obstacles employers face in this evolving industry and helps represent and advise employers in all matters arising from employee claims.
Our attorneys are particularly experienced in defending businesses at administrative hearings, during pre-trial investigations, and assisting employers charged by state or federal government agencies with alleged violations of labor and employment laws, such as wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination and wage and hour violations. We also defend employers for claims made by employees for alleged breach of employment contracts, misappropriation of trade secrets, interference, defamation, invasion of privacy and infliction of emotional distress. The attorneys at Hamilton Weber are experienced in assisting business owners with drafting confidentiality agreements, employee handbooks, applications for employment, management training materials, non-solicitation agreements, policies, procedures and guidelines, and severance agreements in an effort to avoid future claims.
