Employment Practice

Our Employment Law attorneys represent employers and senior executives in a wide range of employment counseling and litigation matters.

  • Americans With Disabilities Act
  • California Fair Employment and Housing Act
  • COBRA
  • Collective bargaining agreements and union-management relations
  • Employee defamation
  • Employee privacy and drug testing
  • ERISA
  • Fair Credit Reporting Act
  • Family Medical Leave Act
  • Sexual harassment
  • Theft of trade secrets and employee dishonesty or disloyalty
  • Title VII and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Wage/hour matters
  • Whistle-blowers
  • Wrongful termination

Our Employment Law attorneys also provide litigation avoidance services. We work with our clients to develop effective personnel policies and practices, and we draft and negotiate employment agreements and separation agreements.  We also provide preventative counseling and education for employers and managers on a wide range of matters including terms of employment, independent contractors, trade secrets, ERISA and employee benefits, discipline, searches, drug testing, termination, severance, and equal employment opportunity.

Dillingham & Murphy attorneys regularly provide their clients with the policies, training and advice needed to minimize, or to avoid altogether, the costs of defending employment cases -- both financial and human.

Our Employment Practice attorneys also works closely with other Dillingham & Murphy lawyers in other practice areas to provide support and assistance on employment issues, such as mergers and acquisitions, insurance coverage and intellectual property.
