Lurie Friedman LLP



| Employment Litigation & Counseling

Lurie Friedman has many years of experience representing businesses and individuals in negotiating, mediating, arbitrating and litigating a wide variety of employment disputes. Because we work for both employers and employees, we have substantial insight into the interests of both sides and how their disputes may be resolved reasonably, quickly and inexpensively. We also regularly represent clients on these matters in state and federal courts and agencies.

We have expertise handling matters involving, among other things, breach of employment contracts, severance disputes, non-compete and non-solicit clauses, misuse of trade secrets and confidential information, misappropriation of corporate opportunities, embezzlement, stock options, bonuses and commissions, wage and hour claims, terminations, constructive discharge, and 409A and 280G issues. We also handle discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation and whistle-blower claims.

We have significant experience with employment issues in close corporations, including “freeze-out” claims and fiduciary duties owed by directors, officers and stockholders. We also conduct internal investigations for our clients regarding allegations of employee and institutional misconduct, and deal with federal, state and local authorities regarding these matters. We draft executive employment agreements for both employers and employees and regularly advise clients regarding general employment practices and policies as well as specific hiring, firing, promotion, leave of absence and other workplace issues.
