Employment Law

Employment and Labor Law disputes and litigation handled by an Employment Lawyer encompasses a variety of case types. These disputes may involve an employer or an employee.  The need may arise at the start of employment, such as at the contract stage involving terms, conditions, confidentiality and non-compete matters.  As well, issues can arise during the employment stage, and even thereafter.  For example, non compete and confidentiality clauses often require assistance from an employment attorney either at the drafting stage, or when there is the possibility of litigation to enforce or contest the validity of the non compete agreement.
