Stein Sperling’s employment law team works closely with the litigation department to aggressively defend claims against our clients brought by former, current and prospective employees. These include wage-hour, harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination and other matters. We also handle litigation claims alleging violations of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the FLSA, the FMLA, the ADA, and OSHA, among others.
Our attorneys regularly enforce and defend breach of contract claims arising from alleged violations of non-competition, non-solicitation, restrictive covenants, confidentiality agreements and other employment agreements. When necessary, we pursue emergency injunctive relief to prevent irreparable harm to our clients’ businesses. We are well versed in employment claims brought before federal, state and local administrative bodies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Maryland Department of Labor and county-level human rights commissions.
For each of these matters, our team of litigators works closely with our employment law attorneys to devise strategies to protect our clients’ rights and achieve their goals. Before forming a case strategy for any employment dispute, it is imperative to learn about our clients’ organizations, their culture and how their employees, managers and owners interact and we spend a great deal of time doing so. Armed with this knowledge, we work side-by-side with clients to set manageable expectations for the achievement of their goals, whether through litigation or mediation and arbitration.
