RPSA’s Employment Practice can serve as an extension of a company’s human resources department, providing advice on all legal aspects of employment relations. Experience gained from working with clients ranging from small, family-owned businesses to large corporations affords us the ability to understand the diverse culture of each business and to tailor our employment services to meet the particular needs of each. We also have extensive experience defending employers in labor and employment disputes in federal and state courts, as well as related administrative agencies.
Areas in which our expertise has been utilized include:
- Allegations of race, sex, national origin, age, religious and disability discrimination arising under federal and state law
- Wage payment claims, including those arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act and the Texas Payday Law
- Wrongful discharge, harassment, whistleblower and retaliation claims
- Prosecution and defense of non-competition and trade secret agreements
Since many claims may be avoided or more readily defended if clients understand their legal responsibilities, our lawyers take a proactive approach to solving employment disputes. We consult with clients on a regular basis on matters related to employment contracts, non-competition and trade secret agreements, policy manuals, EEO and harassment-free work environments, drug testing, privacy, workplace investigations, extended absences from work, discipline and discharge.
