Labor and Employment Law Cases We Handle

Every business that has employees must be attentive to the management of workplace conflict and the avoidance of labor disputes. Designed to protect the interests of both parties, federal and state laws carry significant penalties for failure to adhere to applicable regulations. Employees perform at their optimum when employers actively comply with the numerous state and federal laws that regulate the employee-employer relationship. A New Orleans employment law attorney at our firm can help if an employee has taken legal against you for any of the matters listed below:

  • Family and medical leave
  • Discrimination based on age, race, sex, national origin, religion and disability
  • Wrongful termination
  • Improper classification of workers as independent contractors or as exempt employees
  • Overtime and minimum wage violations
  • Workers compensation
  • Unemployment compensation
