Labor and Employment

Employment law is one of the fastest changing and most complex areas of the law affecting private and public entities today. Our attorneys have extensive experience in employment law, having represented employers and employees in both the public and private sectors. This representation includes litigation in state and federal courts, as well as before administrative agencies such as the Arizona Civil Rights Division, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Division of Labor.

The Firm represents employers of all sizes on a broad range of employment and labor law issues. Although we have extensive experience in litigating employment matters, we emphasize the prevention and early resolution of disputes. Our employment lawyers routinely provide advice on personnel policies; procedures for hiring and firing; drug and polygraph testing; covenants not to compete; confidentiality agreements; wage and hour issues; and compliance with federal and state statutes, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family Medical Leave Act.  Our attorneys are also available to provide seminars and training on employment issues for you, your management team, or your entire staff.
