Labor and Employment Litigation

The array of laws concerning the treatment of employees, former employees, and applicants for employment is vast and complex, and the experience required to master them extensive. The employment attorneys at Krebs Farley are highly knowledgeable and skilled in navigating that complex network, and in aggressively litigating all types of employment-based disputes.

These include matters involving wrongful termination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, whistle blower retaliation, wage-per-hour claims, defamation, and employment agreements, including non-compete covenants.

We have litigated cases arising under bodies of law such as the Family Medical Leave Act, Age Discrimination and Employment Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, and Fair Labor Standards Act.

Our attorneys represent clients in both state and federal court, as well as in collective bargaining arenas, grievance arbitration, and before administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

We counsel our clients regularly with the goal of preventing employee-related litigation; we provide advice on compliance, employee training, the drafting of employee manuals, the preparation of employee contracts and the negotiation of separation or termination agreements. However, even with the most meticulous planning, matters arise that must be resolved in court. When this occurs, we bring the full measure of our trial skills and knowledge to bear in order to achieve a favorable outcome.
