Skilled Civil Rights and Employer Lawsuit Defense Attorneys
Issues involving employment litigation are often complex and involve a strong understanding of federal and state laws. Today’s employer is expected to comply with federal, state and local laws governing the workplace and the employer/employee relationship. The federal “alphabet” laws such as the ADA, the ADEA, the PDA and OSHA and their interrelation to Title VII places obligations on employers which are certainly confusing and often conflict with each other.
The expanded Civil Rights Act of 1964 has created a new area of legal practice, often referred to among attorneys as Employer Liability. Litigation can arise from a variety of areas within this area, including defending employers in claims such as:
- Wrongful discharge
- Improper drug testing
- Criminal conduct
- Sexual preference issues
- Religious issues
