Employment Counseling

The attorneys at Clark Hill possess the skills and expertise necessary to provide accurate and efficient counseling to our clients. We deftly counsel clients on any employment-related matter that may arise in the workplace, including day-to-day employee discipline and long-term structuring of employment policies. Our goal is to not only provide our clients with counseling that can effectively resolve the issue at hand, but to provide our clients with knowledge so that they become more effective at spotting issues and properly addressing them before they develop into disputes. Our overall goal when counseling clients is to help them avoid litigation by providing workable solutions that foster a productive and harmonious work environment. Among the issues we regularly address are:

  • State and federal discrimination, harassment and retaliation law compliance
  • Disability law compliance and requests for accommodations
  • Compliance with state and federal whistleblower acts
  • Family and Medical Leave Act compliance
  • Workplace privacy, electronic monitoring and drug and alcohol testing
  • Mandatory arbitration in the workplace
  • Employee evaluation, discipline and discharge
  • Preparation of employee handbooks and policy manuals, employment agreements, separation agreements, employment applications and related forms
  • Protection of employers' trade secrets and confidential information
  • Union elections, collective bargaining and related issues
  • State and federal wage and hour law compliance
  • Enforcement of non-compete, confidentiality and trade secret agreements
