Manier & Herod’s attorneys assist employers in defending against claims of violations of federal laws, including claims of discrimination arising under anti-discrimination statutes, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, and Civil Rights Act of 1964. Further, we represent clients in matters involving ERISA, OSHA, the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act. In addition to federal litigation matters, we routinely defend clients faced with state law claims of defamation, tortuous interference with contractual relations, breach of contract, wrongful discharge, and workers’ compensation claims.
Manier & Herod’s representation is not limited to employment and human resource related litigation, but also includes matters such as planning for employee terminations, structuring progressive discipline plans, and drafting employee handbooks and affirmative action plans. The firm conducts seminars specifically tailored to the needs of our clients on a variety of employment and labor related topics. Our attorneys frequently speak at seminars for lawyers, accountants, and human resource professionals on issues of current importance in the human resources area.
