Steering You Through the Workplace.

The modern workplace presents many challenges for both employers and employees.  As you strive to grow and develop your business or nonprofit, or work hard to succeed as an employee, it can be difficult to keep up with the numerous legal duties, rights and resources applicable to you.

Whether you are an employer seeking legally-compliant policies and procedures, a business or nonprofit in need of experienced and dependable counsel on stand-by to assist when sensitive personnel issues arise, or an individual seeking to assert your rights in the areas of hiring, termination or discrimination, the Employment Law group at Peacock Keller is ready to assist.
 

Compliance & Policy Review

Our Employment Law group counsels our corporate and non-profit clients regarding compliance with the myriad laws affecting employers, including the Family and Medical Leave Act, COBRA, and federal and state anti-discrimination laws.  Our counsel often takes the form of drafting and revising employer policy manuals to ensure that all practices are legally sound and protect the employer's interests. We direct our efforts toward minimizing liability and ensuring that our clients have policies and practices that are well-suited to withstand legal challenge.

Contracts & Agreements

We work with both employers and employees to draft, review and amend a wide variety of agreements, including employment contracts, severance, independent contractor, confidentiality, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements.  The attorneys within our Business group are available as an additional resource for our clients in these and other employment matters.

Hiring, Firing & Litigation

Employee hiring, discipline and termination each present unique legal challenges.  Our Employment Law attorneys are experienced in guiding both employers and employees through these processes. For employers, we work in conjunction with executives and human resource departments to minimize potential legal liability throughout these sensitive procedures.  Through collaboration with our Litigation Group as appropriate, we also assist employers and employees in enforcing their rights when legal disputes arise involving these and other personnel matters.

Our Employment Law and Litigation groups bring to bear their combined experience in numerous areas of employment litigation, including Title VII discrimination and harassment actions, claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and Americans With Disabilities Act, retaliation and wrongful discharge claims, and unemployment compensation appeals.

Legal issues in the workplace are complicated and sensitive for both employers and employees. Peacock Keller's Employment Law group provides sound, experienced and responsive legal counsel to assist our clients in navigating the workplace landscape.
