Carr Allison is dedicated to representing employers in today’s complex and contentious business environment. Because federal and state employment laws and regulations are ever-changing, the attorneys in Carr Allison’s Labor & Employment Group stay abreast of the latest developments, nuances and changes in the law so they can competently advise clients on labor and employment issues, as well as efficiently represent clients in employment-related litigation. Timing is everything when workplace issues crop up. Our attorneys understand this and quickly respond to minimize their impact to achieve the best possible result. Our attorneys also provide strategic support and guidance in developing employment policies and practices designed to prevent litigation, including drafting employment policies and procedures for clients, drafting and updating employee handbooks, providing training to executive level management and counseling clients concerning a myriad of employment issues. Our attorneys routinely and effectively represent clients when dealing with the EEOC, U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA and other state and federal regulatory agencies.

Although our goal is to aid clients in avoiding and reducing the risks of litigation, if litigation does ensue, our attorneys have the knowledge, experience, and ability to quickly evaluate potential exposure, minimize risks through strategic litigation, and vigorously represent clients in state or federal court to achieve favorable results. Not only have our attorneys successfully represented clients against numerous employment-related tort actions (including claims for defamation, retaliation, invasion of privacy, wrongful discharge, assault and battery, outrage and negligent hiring, supervision and retention) our attorneys have also successfully represented clients in a wide range of employment related issues, including:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended
  • 42 U.S.C. § 1981
  • 42 U.S.C. § 1983
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

  • Family Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
