Employment Related Disputes
Employment disputes can occur both in regards to key employees and wage based laborers.
Disputes with key employees often concern matters arising from an employment agreement, such as non-compete or confidentiality clauses. Other times a breach of fiduciary duties such as the duty of loyalty may be at play.
Employment of wage based employees is regulated both on the state and federal level. Governmental investigations concerning misclassification of wage based employees as independent contractors, minimum wage and overtime compensation issues can often lead to a defensible dispute when there are facts and factors the government has ignored during their investigation. Even if the business decides to comply with the conclusions of an investigation, the government’s initial allegation of sums owed can be lowered by significant sums through careful analysis and argument.
