Employment and Labor Law
The Labor and Employment Law team at KPM believes that an organization’s most valuable resource is its people. We vigorously defend management’s employment decisions both in and out of the courtroom without compromising the organization’s brand or relationship with its workforce. Our team is responsive and efficient in resolving your labor and employment disputes.
We regularly represent employers in sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation litigation brought pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We also defend discrimination and retaliation litigation filed pursuant to the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. We defend management’s decisions at EEOC charge proceedings as well as various state level administrative proceedings including unemployment commission hearings and Department of Labor complaints. We also regularly defend employers in the ever evolving area of state common law actions for wrongful termination, defamation and other intentional torts. KPM can also help you reduce your exposure to employment litigation by negotiating and preparing effective employee separation agreements and covenants not to compete.
