Our firm represents clients in a variety of civil rights and employment litigation. Our defense of employers begins at the investigative phases by various administrative bodies and continues through any potential litigation to the resolution of the claim. Our cases have included single and multiple claimant litigation involving individual civil rights claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Family Medical Leave Act. Additionally, our practice has often focused on defending claims alleging violations of more specific federal regulations including the Davis Bacon Act, the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act, the Walsh-Healey Public Contracts Act, and also individual states’ regulations regarding civil rights and wage payment.
Our experienced civil rights and employment attorneys offer seminars on a multitude of civil rights and employment topics, including sexual harassment in the workplace, employees’ rights in the workplace, preventing and defending employment litigation, effective human resources policies, record keeping, and document retention, labor and wage issues, and more. Harris & Hayden is pleased to offer these informative presentations to clients and their employees in order to keep our clients well apprised of the most up-to-date civil rights and employment laws, issues, and changes. Our attorneys find that keeping clients well informed and advised with regard to their internal policies has served the clients well in preventing and defending their business against employment liability.
