Michel & Associates’ lawyers are fierce labor and employement law litigators. Our labor and employment law team prosecutes claims against former employees and competing businesses for theft of trade secrets and confidential information. We also represent employers who have been sued by employees or charged by state or federal government agencies for alleged violations of labor and employment laws. We assist our clients in defending against all manner of employee claims, including claims of unpaid wages and benefits, wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, harassment and workplace violence.
Whether brought by a government agency, an individual, or through an attempted class action, we provide our clients with aggressive and effective representation before courts, administrative agencies, arbitrators, and mediators.
We also offer comprehensive counsel on employment relationships to employers of all sizes across a wide business and industry spectrum. We advise our clients on all aspects of the creation, managment, and termination of the employment relationship including recruitment and hiring, employee discipline, and severance procedures. We help employers comply with and enforce federal and state wage and hour laws, handle unemployment and disability claims, maintain appropriate employment insurance coverage, understand and comply with state and federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) regulations, implement drug testing programs when appropriate, comply with employee privacy protections, and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Our attorneys help prevent problems by helping clients establish appropriate policies and procedures, design training programs, and conduct follow-up audits to ensure continuing regulatory compliance. We can educate and guide you through the maze of federal and state regulatory employment and labor laws, and provide you with aggressive and effective representation when you need it.
