Employment Litigation

In most areas of our law practice, we serve employers who own small to medium-sized businesses. They most often come to us looking for legal protection through proactive counsel and representation. They rely on us to advise them and help them avoid legal problems related to employee relations, in interactions with government agencies and in connection with union activity.

Preventing litigation is the best course of action whenever possible. Many of our employer clients employ us on a monthly retainer basis for that very purpose, and they have expressed great satisfaction with our ability to help them prevent lawsuits and respond appropriately to complaints and challenges.

Litigation cannot always be avoided, however. Some conflicts do develop into court cases. Key Harrington Barnes PC represents clients acting as plaintiffs or defendants in conflicts involving:

Often, our clients are on the defense as employees file claims against them or as government agencies conduct investigations into their internal operations. For example, employers may be named in discrimination claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or may be accused of wage and hour law transgressions in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Key Harrington Barnes PC often succeeds in heading off lawsuits. We will also aggressively defend our clients in an administrative hearing or at trial when that becomes necessary.

Sometimes the employer is the one bringing a complaint in a legal dispute over a noncompete agreement. We represent employers acting as plaintiffs as well as employers who are targeted in sexual harassment or disability lawsuits. Our experience and track record of successful outcomes on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants speaks for itself.
