Practice Areas

Employment and Labor

The firm counsels, advises, and assists both businesses and individuals with a wide range of employment-related issues. This includes drafting and reviewing employee handbooks and policies, business contracts and employment agreements, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, and release and separation agreements. Our familiarity with litigating both the employer and employee sides of these issues means that we have the experience to help achieve constructive solutions to our clients' needs, regardless of the perspective from which they approach the problem or the ends they seek to serve.

In addition, our attorneys help businesses comply with federal and state laws relating to employment, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the National Labor Relations Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act. Additionally, we represent both businesses and individuals in administrative proceedings, such as Equal Employment Opportunity Commission proceedings, alternative dispute resolution, and litigation related to all aspects of employment and labor disputes.

In this practice area, the firm's attorneys have successfully defended companies in discrimination, sexual harassment, and Americans with Disabilities Act claims, assisted individuals claiming employment discrimination, litigated and mediated employee claims of compensation due under employment contracts, and litigated the enforceability of restrictive covenants and similar agreements.

This practice area is led by Lynn C. Stewart. For any questions or additional information about our employment and labor practice, please contact Lynn at 404-681-3450 or
