Ellis & Winters attorneys have successfully defended employers against the full range of claims brought by employees and former employees. Federal and state statutes often provide the framework for claims of discrimination or retaliation based on race, age, gender, or disability, but these claims are frequently supplemented by common law claims that may add distinct liability or damages issues to the case. Our experience with these laws and familiarity with employers' practices enhances the likelihood of a successful result at the earliest possible stage in the litigation. In addition, our attorneys have substantial experience in cases involving restrictions arising from a former employment relationship, including non-competition and confidentiality agreements.
