Experienced Employment Law Attorneys
There are many issues that can lead to disputes between employers and employees. When these disputes rise to the level of possible litigation, it’s important to hire an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable in the area of employment law. At the Law Office of Alan Lowenthal, we have over 40 years of combined experience handling employment law matters. Our firm assists both employers and employees in dispute resolution and litigation.
High-Quality Legal Counsel in Various Employment Law Matters
There are numerous laws governing the responsibilities of employers and the rights of employees. Also, employers often require employees to sign legal documents describing compensation, benefits, rights of the company regarding termination of employment, prohibitions on where the employee can work after leaving the company, and general rules of conduct. When these employment laws or contracts are breached, it can result in expensive and time-consuming lawsuits. Our firm is experienced in handling employment law matters including:
- Workplace discrimination;
- Sexual harassment;
- Wage, commission and benefit disputes;
- Severance disputes;
- Breach of contract;
- Confidentiality issues;
- Workplace health and safety issues;
- Wrongful terminations; and
- Family and medical leave issues.
We represent employers and employees. We carefully assess the merits of each claim and guide our clients towards the best possible outcome. In some cases, that may lead towards a negotiated settlement. Other cases may have to be litigated in court.
Employment laws change often, so it is important to choose an attorney who is not only experienced but also knowledgeable and up-to-date on new changes in the law. Our attorneys stay current on state and federal labor laws and regulations. We vigorously represent our clients’ interests both in and out of court.
