Employment Agreements, Policies, and Procedures

Navigating this complicated and constantly evolving landscape, our team will draft all necessary documents, ensure compliance, participate in mediation, prepare for governmental audits, and litigate for clients in bringing or defending a suit.

Regulatory Compliance

We are equipped to advise clients on a wide array of relevant federal, state and local employment-based statutes, regulations and ordinances, including the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Older Workers Benefits Protection Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Uniform Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Employee Discipline & Termination

Our attorneys are experienced in advising and representing clients in all employee disciplinary action and termination matters.

Leaves of Absence

The Employment/Labor Group counsels clients regarding employee leaves of absence, including compliance with the FMLA, the ADA, the Illinois VESSA, and the Workers Compensation Act.

Discrimination Charge

We offer expertise in representing clients facing charges of discrimination filed with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, and other applicable federal and state agencies, including drafting position statements and participating in mediation and fact-finding conferences.

Payroll & Compensation

Our lawyers assist clients in complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act, and other applicable federal and state statutes.

Employee Handbooks

Drafting a well-defined employee handbook is a crucial step in establishing clear expectations and fostering a positive workplace culture. Our experienced team specializes in developing comprehensive employee handbooks tailored to your organization’s specific needs.

Restrictive Covenants

We routinely counsel our clients regarding drafting and litigating the enforceability of restrictive covenant, confidentiality, and non-solicitation agreements. Over the last 40 years, members of the firm have achieved important results in the courtroom, both enforcing and defending against the enforcement of post-employment restrictions.
