The labor and employment group represents employers both in federal and state courts, as well as before federal and state administrative agencies. Our experience covers matters involving allegations of employment discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, civil rights violations, contract disputes, and workers’ compensation disputes. We have handled matters based on a variety of state and federal statutes, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Louisiana Employment Discrimination Law. Our attorneys strive to preempt litigation when possible by advising clients on issues such as discharging employees, enforcement of non-competition agreements, and claims brought under state or federal whistleblower laws. Our experience and success in this field have earned us the representation of both private school systems and public school districts throughout Louisiana.
