Employers rely on our employment law attorneys to protect them from liability and advance their business interests.  As counselors, we advise our employer clients on a variety of issues surrounding the employment relationship, including hiring practices, employment contracts, non-compete agreements, compensation, medical leave, investigation, discipline, and termination.  We provide tailored employee training, develop employment policies and procedures, and offer guidance in enforcing those policies and procedures, with the aim of avoiding litigation.  
 
As litigators, we have experience with highly contentious non-compete litigation and we defend employers against a variety of employment law claims, including claims under the Minnesota Whistleblower Act, the Minnesota Human Rights Act, Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Federal Railroad Safety Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.  Businesses large and small rely on our litigation experience to protect and defend their rights at administrative proceedings and trial.
 
Our employment attorneys know the importance of understanding the unique business needs of each client. We offer personalized legal services designed to meet those needs, with the goal of helping to make each client’s business thrive.
