Employment and Labor Law

Our employment and labor law attorneys represent companies and individuals in connection with employment and workplace issues, including claims under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), Title VII (age, race, national origin, sex and religion), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Texas Labor Code, the Texas Workers' Compensation Act, and other federal and state labor and employment laws.

Our attorneys also handle administrative complaints filed with and/or investigations initiated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Texas Workforce Commission (TWC), Department of Labor, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Additionally, we handle state and federal trials and appeals resulting from these complaints and from wrongful termination and other employment related lawsuits initiated by or on behalf of employees, including class actions and collective wage and hour actions.

We advise our clients on workplace personnel matters every day, including issues such as negotiating settlement packages, preparing employee manuals, pay and worker classification issues, legal and regulatory compliance, and recordkeeping matters. Additionally, our lawyers provide advice to our clients in connection with governmental audits and inquiries, including by the Department of Labor and other state and federal agencies.
