Employment Law

The strength of any organization lies in its workforce. We know this, federal and state laws acknowledge it, and we believe you do, too. Employment laws are critical because they deal with your company’s relationship with ‘people’ who work with you. 

This relationship can spring several woes and pitfalls if you don’t take proactive steps to avoid them. Some of the challenges you can face include:

  • Wrongful termination claims
  • Discrimination and harassment claims
  • Wage and hour termination
  • Employee classification issues
  • Inadequate workplace policies
  • Union and labor relations issues
  • Data privacy and security
  • And many more.

With our over 100 years of combined business law experience at Calkins Law Firm, we’ve come to understand that each employment relationship is unique, and the challenges employers face are diverse. 

That’s why our dedicated team of employment law attorneys stands ready to partner with your company, providing comprehensive legal solutions tailored to safeguard your interests, mitigate risks, and foster a workplace environment that is both legally sound and conducive to success.
