Employment Law and Litigation
We at H&L believe that the key to effectively representing our employer-clients is proactive approach, centered around liability-reducing measures. We represent companies in numerous industries, whether public or private, non-profit or for-profit, small or large. The first step in any representation is to assess our client's potential liability exposure from typical employment claims such as:
- Wrongful termination;
- Unfair labor practices;
- Wage and hour violations;
- FMLA, ADA, ADEA, ELCRA, FLSA, CRA 1964, and PDCRA violations;
- Hostile work environment;
- Discrimination, including gender and sexual; and
To that end, we will conduct a comprehensive audit of your company's human resource policies and procedures to determine potential exposure. Once we have completed your audit, we will recommend liability-reducing measures to lessen the likelihood and amount of any exposure. We, at H&L, also believe that educating our managers and employees as to the law is a great way to prevent inadvertent legal issues. We offer training seminars on various employment law topics. To schedule a seminar, contact us today!
At H&L, we also recognize that proper drafting of business documents can play a large role in reducing liability. Our attorneys will work with you to develop legally-sound confidentiality and non-compete agreements; RFQs and RFPs; social media, internet, email, and computer-usage policies; employment handbooks; vendor contracts; and licensing agreements.
If litigation occurs, the skilled attorneys at H&L will provide you the best representation available, protecting your company from potentially ruinous awards and sanctions. We represent clients throughout the state of Michigan in both federal and state courts, as well as, administrative agencies.
