    Defending Businesses Facing Employment Law Claims

    In today’s challenging economic climate, workplace disputes and lawsuits are often unpredictable, unavoidable and highly troublesome. Whether the claim involves allegations of harassment, wrongful termination, or another employment law matters, these cases place employers in the tenuous position of having to defend their actions while considering the practicalities and economics of reasonable resolutions.

    The attorneys at Mintzer Sarowitz Zeris Ledva & Meyers LLP understand the difficult challenges employers contend with on a day-to-day basis. We represent employers operating across a wide variety of industries in administrative hearings, mediations, arbitrations and court proceedings involving a broad range of employment matters, including:

    • Wage and hour claims
    • Workplace safety
    • Workers’ Compensation
    • Discrimination
    • Employee discipline and discharge
    • Sexual harassment
    • Employment litigation
    • Employee benefits
    • Due Diligence investigations

    Resolving Workplace Disputes Quickly and Discreetly

    Employment law claims can be highly problematic because they often spread rapidly, leading to allegations from other employees. When a problem surfaces, our legal team works to get in front of the issue quickly, resolving it discreetly before it has the chance to escalate. We also launch an aggressive investigation of the claim to establish that the company is carefully examining the matter and taking all appropriate action.

    In every employment law matter that we handle, our attorneys work closely with the client to develop a plan of action that best serves their individual business needs. We carefully assess the strength of the case and outline all options that may be available to resolve the matter. In many cases, we are able to help clients reach a fair settlement of the claim without the high costs and publicity typically associated with litigation. However, if a settlement is unattainable, our attorneys vigorously defend clients against the employment claim in state and federal court.

    To further protect our clients against claims and lawsuits, we proactively examine their workplace practices, advising on best practices and addressing potential problems and concerns. We also present employment law seminars and assist clients in the development of compliance programs, employee handbooks and other workplace policies designed to prevent employment law claims altogether.
