Employment Litigation

The most common types of litigation businesses might find themselves involved in relate to employment disputes. Employment disputes can take place at the state or federal level depending on the type of claim being made. The federal circuit to which North Carolina belongs is one of the most conservative in the nation. In this environment, successful employment law claims are quite challenging.

Some types of employment law disputes that may bring companies and employees to court include these:

  • Gender Discrimination and Equal Pay Issues
  • Age Discrimination
  • Discrimination Against Race, National Origin & Religion
  • Failure to Comply With the Americans With Disabilities Act or the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Wage and Hour Disputes
  • Employment Agreements | Disputes and Negotiations
  • Severance Pay
  • Whistleblower Litigation & Retaliation Claims
