Employment and Labor Law

Employment and Labor Law Attorneys at Lasater & Martin have extensive experience in all areas of employment and labor law, including negotiating EEOC claims, drafting and editing employee manuals, and litigating discrimination cases. We provide employment law advice to guide employers, help them avoid pitfalls, and protect employers who are targeted for litigation. Even very careful and conscientious employers can get caught up in some aspect of employment litigation.

When litigation is involved, our attorneys are experienced in defending employment-related lawsuits of all types, including discrimination and harassment, wrongful termination, wage and hour, breach of contract, violation of privacy, and defamation claims. Our lawyers have extensive litigation experience in state and federal court, as well as in private arbitration and mediation proceedings.

Wherever possible, our employment lawyers prefer to work with our clients to take a proactive, preventative approach to designing and implementing employment policies that fit our client’s unique workplace requirements and minimize disputes that may later require litigation.

We stay apprised of new and ever-changing laws affecting the employment relationship, including marijuana and business immigration laws. Our lawyers also work with insurance carriers who issue Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) and are familiar with industry standards that govern such policies.
