We all know that even the best-prepared employer may occasionally face an employment-related claim or lawsuit. We provide aggressive, yet cost-effective, defense against employment-related claims in both state and federal courts. We also have extensive experience representing employers in investigations and administrative proceedings before state and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the EEOC, the Texas Commission on Human Rights and the Texas Workforce Commission.

We regularly represent clients in investigations and litigation over employment, non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality, severance agreements, and theft of trade secrets, including the time-sensitive injunctions and restraining orders that often are important parts of these disputes. We defend the interests of employers on either side of a controversy — seeking enjoining former employees from doing harm or freeing new employees from unreasonable restraint.

The many types of employment-related matters we handle include the following:

  • Employment discrimination
  • Harassment and retaliation
  • Retaliation and wrongful discharge
  • Title VII, ADA and FMLA compliance
  • Severance arrangements and employment contracts
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
  • Plant closings and mass layoffs
  • Wage and hour issues
  • Workplace privacy (including drug, alcohol and disease testing)
