Our Employment Litigation Practice

We represent employers as plaintiffs or defendants in all types of disputes arising in the workplace, including:

  • discrimination claims. We defend against all types of discrimination claims, such as violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Equal Pay Act and Title VII. These claims include allegations of discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion or national origin, as well as pregnancy or genetic information. We will also appear on your behalf in EEOC proceedings.
  • wage and hour claims. We defend companies charged with violations of wage and hour laws, including claims alleging failure to pay overtime or to otherwise properly compensate employees for time worked. We also represent employers in employee actions to recover unemployment compensation.
  • breach of contract. We defend businesses being sued by former employees for breach of an employment contract, as well as over severance package disputes.
  • wrongful discharge. Though employment in Texas is at will, individuals nonetheless file lawsuits alleging termination in violation of law or public policy. We aggressively defend against these types of claims.
