Employment & Workplace Law
The Van Winkle Law Firm works extensively with owners of small, local businesses
as well as executives with multi-national Fortune 500 companies to understand
and comply with applicable federal and state employment laws.
Our proactive approach to workplace matters assures clients receive effective
counsel in every aspect of the employer/employee relationship, from the
onset, to minimize risks and liabilities in the future. Through seminars,
on-site training and personal counsel, we assist clients in the development
and implementation of preventive procedures and best practices designed
to avoid disputes in matters that can include wage and hour issues; occupational
safety (OSHA), restrictive covenants and trade secrets; management of
employer sponsored benefit plans; and Americans with Disabilities (ADA),
Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Age (ADEA) and Title VII discrimination.
When lawsuits arise, we guide clients to take appropriate measures, assess
applicable employment laws and analyze legislative histories to develop
a vigorous and responsive defense.
