Employment Law Attorneys
Most of our clients are technical experts in their areas of business. Like them, we are technical experts in our area of business—advising and protecting business clients from federal and state laws that affect their employment practices. The employment law team at DKB advises business clients on everything from FMLA and ADA compliance to the drafting and enforcement of restrictive covenants and separation agreements. Additionally, the attorneys at DKB are well-equipped to represent employers on EEOC and ERD employment discrimination claims, should those arise.
Depending on the needs to the company, DKB also drafts individualized employee handbooks and offers in person training of employees on sensitive legal issues like harassment and discipline and discharge. It is important to our employment law team that we understand the needs of the business and offer the proper depth of service to promote growth and development.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Our employment law practice provides both but, at its core, centers around creating preventative solutions for our clients that save them time, money, and the hassle of litigation. Prevention starts with the creation of sound employment practices, employee handbooks, covenants not to compete, confidentiality agreements, and employee review and disciplinary forms. With the proper policies in place, we will work with you to design internal procedures to implement and document your employment practices.
Even with the best preventative measures, it is impossible to avoid all conflict in employment law. However, managing and documenting that conflict is critical to achieving the desired outcome. Our employment law team at DKB will work closely with you to address the tough issues, leaving the company in a strong position. If termination of an employee is necessary for the overall wellbeing of the company, we will work with you to prepare and deliver termination paperwork and, if necessary, defend against the unemployment insurance request and any subsequent discrimination claims.
In the event that litigation cannot be avoided, our employment law team brings experience and expertise to represent your interests to the full extent of the law. We have successfully represented employers in state administrative and circuit court cases, along with hearings in front of the EEOC and federal court.
