Labor & Employment

Sirote & Permutt’s Labor & Employment practice group has successfully represented clients before administrative agencies, in arbitration and mediation proceedings and in employment litigation, including discrimination claims under state and federal laws and other wrongful discharge claims. Additionally, we work with clients on compliance issues, workers’ compensation, employee handbooks and many other legal matters that arise related to labor and employment.
Our Labor & Employment attorneys work to keep you out of the courtroom through preventative counsel, and advise you on the best course of action when it comes to issues that arise with your business.

However, should your legal matters require litigation, we will aggressively represent you in a way that limits exposure. At the onset of the litigation, we make an early determination of its merits. We interview all potential witnesses and review appropriate documents in an effort to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case.
Afterward, we provide you with not only our assessment of the case, but also a litigation plan that includes a proposed course of action. If the initial investigation reveals the opponent's case has merit, we advise you of the best means to resolve the matter and minimize exposure. Alternatively, if the initial investigation reveals the case is frivolous or defensible, we work zealously to ensure you are ably and successfully defended. Our goal is to obtain dismissal of the litigation as early as possible.
If the case is not resolved prior to trial, we have a very diverse and experienced team of litigators available to try the case.
