Employment

Our attorneys represent employees in all types of employer disputes. From negotiating employment agreements and filing lawsuits, to making complaints regarding overtime pay, sexual harassment, family leave or wrongful termination, we are committed to providing quality work and efficient service to all our clients.

We handle a full range of employment issues, including:

Employment Agreements

Our firm assists with negotiating and reviewing covenants not to compete, trade secret agreements, severance packages, and all other types of employment agreements.

Discrimination and Harassment Issues

We provide advice regarding discrimination or harassment on the basis of gender, race, age, disability, sexual orientation, or any other protected status.

Overtime Issues

Our attorneys help employees recover compensation for overtime or other hours worked.

Leave Issues

We are experienced in the intricacies of state and federal laws regarding family, medical, parental, and military leave.

Workers’ Compensation

Our firm assists clients who have been injured on the job and need to make a workers’ compensation claim, or a claim against someone other than the employer.

Disability Issues

We advise clients who are disabled and may need reasonable accommodations from their employers.

Wrongful Termination

Our attorneys represent clients who have been wrongfully fired by their employers for any reason.

Employment Litigation

Whatever the issue, we can help clients make a complaint to their employer or to an administrative agency — such as the Vermont Attorney General’s office, the Vermont Human Rights Commission, the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, or the Department of Labor — and negotiate a resolution of the dispute. When necessary and appropriate, we can represent clients in a lawsuit before all state and federal courts in Vermont. Whether resolving a dispute or litigating it, we use a common-sense approach to solve problems, remain cost-effective, and work as a team with our colleagues and our clients.
