Barney McKenna & Olmstead, P.C. offers a full range of employment and labor law services. We offer legal counsel on employment relationships to employers of all sizes and across a wide range of industries.
Our attorneys apply proven experience and employment-law skills to prevent employment and labor problems by establishing policies and procedures that keep our clients in compliance with the law. We educate and guide our clients through the complex set of federal and state regulatory employment and labor laws and provide our clients with aggressive representation if litigation is necessary.
We believe that the best approach to employment law problems is to minimize and eliminate the causes of employee dissatisfaction, regulatory action, and ensuing litigation. We work together with our clients’ human resources staff to create personnel practices and policies that minimize exposure to employee complaints, governmental agency actions and other related problems, and inform employees about their workplace and procedures. We can review, draft and negotiate employment contracts as well as non-compete and confidentiality agreements. We advise our clients on what the law requires on issues like wage claims, discrimination, harassment, disability and family leave. We can review and determine our client’s compliance with its legal obligations related to labor and employment law issues.
