At PLDR, our attorneys serve the diverse labor and employment needs of our business clients, providing both counseling and litigation services. Our representation of management includes litigation in state and federal courts, as well as handling employment claims with administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Virginia Employment Commission, and the Department of Labor. The labor and employment issues handled by PLDR’s attorneys include discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, noncompetition disputes, wage and hour claims, breach of contract, employee benefits, and other matters. In addition to management representation in employment disputes, PLDR’s attorneys assist employers with the preparation and revision of employee handbooks, employment contracts, severance agreements, noncompete agreements, and other forms of planning designed to avoid employment disputes. We pride ourselves on giving realistic assessments of labor and employment problems to our clients.
As a way of keeping clients informed, PLDR also provides periodic notices concerning recent developments in employment law to our business clients for whom we provide employment law services. A sample of past notices can be found on this website’s Employment Law Group Updates blog.
