Employment lawsuits in the Houston area have hit all-time highs, primarily due to massive layoffs and job reductions in the local petrochemical industry. Employment litigation arising from employment disputes is difficult, emotional and costly. Our firm has broad experience in cases involving:
Claims of discrimination/wrongful termination under the expansive federal and state regulatory system established by laws such as Title VII, ADEA, FMLA, ADA, FLSA, and the Texas Labor Code.
Issues arising under individual employment contracts, severance agreements, and non-competition agreements.
In addition, we advise our clients on how to reduce the risks of litigation through the development and modification of employment policies, by providing training programs on legal trends and judicial developments, and by giving practical advice on contemplated employment actions such has hiring, firing, or other employee discipline.
