Employment and Civil Rights
Employment law involves a complex web of statutes, regulations and case law that control the relationship between employer and employee.
Many aspects of the employment relationship are governed by civil rights laws that prohibit an employer from making decisions regarding compensation, promotion, discipline or leave based upon factors like race, sex, age, gender, disability, religion, national origin, and in some jurisdictions, sexual orientation. Employment law also encompasses matters such as covenants not to compete, the Family and Medical Leave Act, an employees fiduciary duty and duty of loyalty, wage and hour laws and whistleblowing.
Employment law and civil rights are a significant component of the Firms practice.
