Jaffe & Berlin’s labor and employment practice counsels clients in every area of labor and employment law. Whether you are an employee or employer, at some point you will need an experienced lawyer who can guide you through the maze of labor law that affects today’s workplace.
In addition to traditional labor work, we have extensive experience in all aspects of employment litigation, including trial work, in cases arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act and other federal and state laws regulating the workplace. We also defend clients large and small against breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge claims, and the growing list of employment tort claims.
Our labor and employment practice also includes preventive counseling. We conduct comprehensive employment audits to expose problem areas before they become legal issues. Our management training seminars equip supervisors to handle difficult workplace issues. Often, our attorneys are called upon to prepare and review employment policies and procedures manuals to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. This combination of educating supervisors on employment issues and giving employees notice of company expectations results in very real cost savings, as well as intangible personnel benefits.
