Employment Law

One of the most challenging aspects of owning a business is dealing with employees. Employment laws are complex, ever-changing, and difficult for employers to keep up with on their own. At Kadish & Anthony Law Group, we have years of experience in employment law, providing help to business owners and human resource managers in all aspects of the employment relationship. Some examples of the areas where we can help include:

Employment agreements: Our experienced attorneys handle employment agreements for employers, including noncompete, nondisclosure, trade secret protection, and non-solicitation agreements.

Employee handbooks: We can design a handbook that will address issues unique to your business and comply with federal, state and local legal requirements, including, for example, drug testing, medical marijuana, social media use, workplace privacy, use of company vehicles, family and medical leave, etc.

Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Arizona’s wage statutes: We can review pay practices to assure compliance with federal and state laws pertaining to worker classifications, overtime eligibility, minimum wage, mandatory paid sick-time under Arizona law, and other wage and hour issues.

Workplace investigations: When an employee complains of discrimination or other aspects of the work relationship, we can step it to investigate the matter, prepare findings and recommend a course of action.

EEOC, the Arizona Civil Rights Division, Department of Labor, or the NLRB Proceedings: On those occasions when an employee’s complaint cannot be resolved internally, we defend employers in proceedings before governmental agencies in matters arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, National Labor Relations Act, the Arizona Employment Protection Act, and other laws that govern the employment relationship.

Separation agreements: When an employment relationship ends, we can prepare the separation agreement to address issues like severance, continuation of benefits, non-disparagement, and release of claims.
