Employment Litigation and Counseling

Kim Vaughan Lerner LLP has the depth of experience to address virtually any employment issue that may arise in the workplace. We routinely handle employment disputes before administrative agencies like the EEOC, in state court, in federal court, or in arbitration. Having litigated employment disputes all the way through a trial or final arbitration hearing, we have the ability to assess a potential claim and implement a plan of action to achieve the desired results, whether that result comes from settlement or trial.

Our broad-based employment litigation experiences include handling EEOC charges of discrimination and lawsuits alleging discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, sex, age, disability, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and pregnancy. We also have handled collective and class actions alleging wage and overtime violations, and claims involving violations of leave laws such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Moreover, we have litigated all types of contractual disputes from breaches of employment and severance agreements to enforcement of non-compete agreements and non-solicitation agreements, as well as breaches of confidentiality and theft of trade secrets.

In addition to our extensive litigation experience, we provide counseling and advice on day-to-day workplace issues. Our counseling services include consulting on employment discipline and termination decisions, providing diversity training or management skills training, drafting or reviewing employment contracts and personnel policies, conducting internal investigations, and auditing employment practices.
