Employment Litigation

Overview

Anderson Kill provides cost-effective, aggressive, and result-oriented representation backed by a wealth of experience. Our attorneys have significant experience in the entire range of employment and labor litigation matters including substantial jury trial backgrounds. Some of our more frequent representations involve the defense of individual employment discrimination suits arising under federal, state, and local discrimination laws including claims based on disability, race, religion, age, national origin, retaliation, sex, sexual harassment, and sexual preference. Anderson Kill’s attorneys are experienced in major class actions arising under various employment discrimination laws, including all aspects of complex discovery proceedings, the use of statistical proof, and the retention, preparation, and cross-examination of statisticians, labor economists, and other experts.

Anderson Kill also represents employers in issues with former employees related to confidentiality and agreements not to compete, the whole range of employment-at-will issues, as well as employment-related tort claims including defamation and invasion-of-privacy claims that may grow out of drug-testing programs or investigations of employee misconduct. The firm’s attorneys are also well versed in the intricacies of the Fair Labor Standards Act and parallel state statutory wage and hour laws. Our firm has negotiated settlements of alleged minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labor violations, and when favorable settlements have not been forthcoming have gone on to litigate such disputes in federal and state courts. We have also represented employers in arbitration, mediation, and other forms of alternate dispute resolution.

Finally, Anderson Kill attorneys have represented management before the National Labor Relations Board in union election proceedings and unfair labor practice cases, as well as in a substantial number of grievance and labor arbitration proceedings relating to alleged violations of collective bargaining agreements.
