Litigation and Administrative Hearings
“The best-laid schemes of mice and men / often go awry.”
– Robert Burns
Despite the best training and intentions, few preventive measures are 100% effective. Employers must be prepared in the event proceedings are initiated by administrative agencies or former employees; these must be handled correctly. That preparation can be as simple as knowing who to call. Whether it is a federal or state agency investigating pursuant to an employee complaint, or a formal proceeding that requires utmost attention to detail, FKW is there for you.
• Employment Contracts Disputes – violation of separation agreements, covenants not to compete, non-solicitation agreements, etc.
• Wrongful termination
• Discrimination,, Harassment and Retaliation claims – under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and other federal and state laws
• Wage and hour claims
• Workers’ compensation claims
• Unemployment claims
Many of these claims can be resolved without the expense (and time commitment) of going to trial. Settlement and mediation are frequently options. But when disputes can’t be resolved, FKW will aggressively defend your interests so you can continue what interests overseeing your business.
