Success depends on relationships that work.
Whether you’re an employer or an employee, work is sometimes just that --- work. At Hiatt & Hoke, we’re here to help both sides work better together so you can get your real work done. We represent employers and employees in all aspects of your relationship, including pre-employment matters, such as negotiating contracts terms and non-competition agreements, severance negotiations, and pre-litigation and litigation related matters.
When litigation is necessary, we have the experience you want and need handling contested employment matters from the initial stage through final appeal involving claims of:
- breaches of employment contracts
- violations of non-compete agreements
- sexual harassment
- hostile work environment
- race, gender, age, national origin, disability and sexual orientation discrimination
To employers we offer counseling to ensure compliance with employment laws and guidance and advice to minimize the effects of litigation. We work with human resource departments to review and draft employee policy manuals. To assist our clients in implementing these policies, we develop and conduct training presentations regarding sexual harassment and workplace discrimination. We counsel clients regarding compliance with State and Federal employment laws and offer guidance and advice on performance evaluations and the employee review process, as well as on conducting internal investigations. In addition, we have staff qualified to conduct independent investigations of internal claims should a client deem it necessary to retain an outside investigator.
Let the attorneys at Hiatt & Hoke take the work out of your work relationships.
At Hiatt & Hoke, we make business personal.
