With deep roots in employment law, Elarbee Thompson devotes a large part of our practice to the representation of management in a wide range of employment matters. Our Employment Law Group spans the entire field of employee relations, including civil rights and equal opportunity, wage and hour compliance, benefits, occupational safety and health, environmental protection and unfair competition.
We partner with in-house counsel, senior management and human resources professionals to assess workplace concerns and develop practical solutions enabling our clients to focus on their business operations and goals. Our attorneys provide creative solutions and excellent service to companies ranging from large multinational corporations to small business owners in such industries as manufacturing, restaurant, healthcare, retail, professional services, finance and the public sector.
We advise on day-to-day employment matters involving all aspects of federal, state and local law and assist clients on the proactive implementation and administration of best practices, such as drug testing, internal wage and hour audits, harassment training, workplace investigations and arbitration agreements.
Elarbee Thompson renders sound advice to avoid legal issues when possible, but we also provide effective and efficient legal representation in litigation and administrative matters when the need arises. We assist clients in administrative proceedings ranging from audits conducted by the Department of Labor and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs to the investigation of charges of discrimination and retaliation filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other related state agencies.
Increasingly, employee legal actions have taken the form of individualized lawsuits and class actions and our attorneys have represented management in such actions in federal, state and local courts nationwide. Elarbee Thompson is a founding member of the Worklaw® Network, a national consortium of independent law firms specializing in labor and employment law located in markets across the U.S. Participation in this network allows the firm to have a nationwide presence, while offering the cost savings and efficiencies of a local firm.
