The firm’s Employment Law Department focuses on servicing clients in both the private and public sectors with sophisticated and cost-effective representation in employment law counseling, compliance issues, and related disputes and litigation, with a primary focus on management. 

Our employment attorneys provide representation in state and federal courts, before administrative agencies including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR), and in arbitration proceedings. The firm’s employment litigation experience encompasses the defense of a wide variety of claims, including those related to discrimination, sexual and other types of harassment, unlawful retaliation, whistleblower, wrongful discharge, contract issues, workplace torts, and wage and hour disputes. Our attorneys also handle disputes involving issues under employment and employment-related agreements, including the enforceability of restrictive covenants, non-compete and non-solicitation provisions.

A significant part of the firm's employment practice involves counseling with regard to employment practices, compliance issues and risk management. Day-to-day work on behalf of clients encompasses advising on employment policies including hiring and discharge, issues in the workplace and worker classification matters. Our attorneys assist with the negotiation and drafting of employment contracts, employee handbooks, restrictive covenants, and non-compete, severance and other agreements. 

In addition, members of the group conduct human resources audits, perform investigations, and develop management and employee training programs covering all aspects of employment-related issues, including anti-harassment policies and the use of social media and other electronic communications.

The practice also encompasses comprehensive representation in matters related to employee benefits and executive compensation, including the drafting, negotiation and implementation of employment and separation agreements, equity and equity-based compensation arrangements, and all types of incentive and deferred compensation arrangements.
