Your business or career is often your most valuable asset. Workplace disputes can be a serious threat to your livelihood, business or career and are often complex. Conflicts at work disrupt operations and cause divisiveness, financial harm and hinder career paths. In such times, it is important for you or your business to understand your rights and responsibilities under the law.
Our attorneys have been advising and representing both businesses and employees involved in employment disputes for almost 25 years.We routinely advise and represent businesses in matters involving Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act and other significant employment laws. Our work with clients involves front end advice regarding day to day matters and HR issues; policies, procedures and compliance; internal investigations, EEOC audits and investigations; and extends to the litigation arena where we handle complex jury trials, appeals, arbitrations, mediations, and administrative hearings. In addition, we customarily advise and assist businesses with respect to the protection of their business interests through the implementation and enforcement of noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements. Moorman Pieschel regularly represents companies whose success and goodwill have been threatened by employees who refuse to honor their obligations under noncompetition or nonsolicitation agreements, who misappropriate trade secrets belonging to the business, or who breach their fiduciary duties to the business.
We also advise and represent employees with respect to their rights and obligations. Negotiating employment contracts, noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements, severance agreements; and advising highly compensated executives are mainstays of our practice. Employees frequently seek out our counsel regarding their post-separation plans and we advise and represent commissioned salespeople in disputes over commissions earned but not paid. Our work also regularly involves advocacy for employees whose rights under Title VII, the ADEA, the ADA, the FMLA, or the FLSA have been violated by their employers.
