The secret to success is to plan for it, and that is no truer than in the workplace. Gesmer’s attorneys are adroit at identifying workplace risk and working with you to avoid problems rather than simply help you to manage them. We see our role as prudens consiliums - wise counsel - as our first and most important obligation. Gesmer attorneys regularly advise clients on hiring and termination, compensation packages, Wage Act and regulatory compliance, independent contractor and consulting arrangements, family, medical, and disability leaves, and anti-discrimination and anti-harassment training.
Our Employment attorneys work closely with our Corporate, Business Formation, Consortium, and Trade Association Practices to ensure effective employment and executive structures for all types of corporate entities, including LLC, partnership, alliance, joint venture, and collaborative consortia arrangements.
When a problem cannot be avoided, it is best addressed promptly and directly. Gesmer employment attorneys have the experience, aptitude, and commitment to negotiate an often-nuanced resolution and to litigate zealously and efficiently when required. Our employment attorneys regularly advise on all issues relating to discrimination and harassment claims, wage and hour violations, wrongful discharge claims, privacy, emotional distress and defamation claims, enforcement of non-competition and nondisclosure agreements, trade secret misappropriation, and myriad other workplace disputes.
Gesmer Updegrove LLP helps clients face the difficult employment law issues that are present in the high technology industry, including representing our clients in resolving employment law-related disputes before state and federal courts, administrative and civil rights agencies, and in mediation or arbitration.
