Providing efficient and effective counsel in all aspects of the employer-employee relationship.
An employer’s best defense against employment-related litigation is the preparedness and foresight of its employment counsel. As such, FTLF proactively works with its clients to ensure they have the policies and practices in place in order to comply with federal and state employment laws.
Through candid advice, email alerts on important legal developments in employment law, and training, FTLF helps organizations mitigate the risk of employment-related disputes.
FTLF’s employment practice handles the full gamut of legal issues arising from the employer-employee relationship. Whether serving in an advisory capacity or as litigation counsel, we leverage our legal expertise and experience to help organizations overcome their everyday workplace challenges.
Tailor-Made Employment Solutions
FTLF understands that every client is different. As such, we place great emphasis on getting to know the specific business needs of each of our clients. We do not provide “cookie cutter” employment advice or adopt a “one size fits all” approach to working with our clients on employment matters. Instead, we formulate strategies that are tailor-made to each of our client’s specific business objectives and priorities.
Skilled Employment Litigators
If an employment dispute does arise, FTLF’s attorneys have substantial litigation experience before both federal and state courts, as well as administrative agencies. We represent clients through all phases of litigation on matters including employment discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, misappropriation of confidential information, wage and hour disputes, restrictive covenants (e.g., non-competition and non-solicitation clauses), and a myriad of other employment-related torts.
We are attuned to the fact that protracted litigation is costly. With this reality in mind, our employment attorneys balance assertiveness with economic pragmatism. As we recognize that a “win” can come in the courtroom or through an amicable resolution, we never lose sight of the big picture — efficient and effective representation.
Federal Employment Law Advisors
FTLF is well-versed in the federal and state laws that govern the employer-employee relationship. As employment laws continually evolve, we keep abreast of recent developments and inform clients on how laws ultimately affect their business practices. We ensure that our clients’ employment policies are compliant with federal regulations such as Title VII, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as state laws on sexual harassment, discrimination in the workplace, and wage and hour regulations.
