The attorneys at Waldron & Schneider handle complex labor and employment matters facing business and management teams across the country. We are uniquely attuned to our clients’ business issues, understanding the ever-present need to balance legal options against company strategy.
Members of our Labor and Employment Section routinely advise and train executives and managers on significant labor and employment issues, enabling the firm to provide aggressive, yet cost-effective strategies to strengthen our clients’ businesses and defend against employment-related claims in both State and Federal court. We routinely represent businesses in matters before state and federal agencies such as the US Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Texas Workforce Commission, and the Texas Commission on Human Rights. The attorneys in our Labor and Employment Section assist clients in preparing, reviewing, and revising employment policies, handbooks, and procedures. We also help clients manage and effectively implement employment policies so they become routine business practices.
We regularly advise and represent clients on matters including the following:
- Employment Contracts
- Severance Agreements
- Non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality agreements
- Theft of trade secrets, including seeking and defending time-sensitive injunctions or restraining orders
- Employment discrimination
- Harassment and retaliation
- Retaliation and wrongful discharge
- Title VII, ADA and FMLA compliance
- Wage and hour issues
- Workplace privacy (including drug, alcohol and disease testing)
We represent both domestic and international businesses, spanning a variety of industries, including energy, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, and construction. We defend the interests of employers on either side of a controversy, whether we are seeking to enjoin former employees from doing harm or working to free a prospective employee from unreasonable restraint. Our clients benefit from the efficiency of our highly trained attorneys and, when necessary, the ability to draw upon the resources of other practices areas within the firm.
