Since 1920, our law firm has represented businesses and individuals in the New Hampshire seacoast area. If you have an employment law concern, we have the experience and legal knowledge to advise you.
Employment law compliance is good business.
Discrimination and harassment are against the law. If you are an employee who has faced discrimination at work or if you are an employer accused of discrimination, discuss the issue with a lawyer who can explain the law and your rights. Our attorneys have handled cases involving sexual harassment and cases involving discrimination based on age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, race and religious affiliation.
Mediation, arbitration and negotiation often solve the problem. Going to court takes time and money and causes emotional stress for everyone involved. Many labor disputes can be resolved in a less confrontational manner through good-faith negotiations or through mediation or arbitration. We have certified mediators at our law firm.
We represent employers and employees at agency hearings. Many employment law issues are heard before federal and state regulatory boards. Our lawyers understand the boards and their processes. We have represented clients before human rights commissions, labor boards, public employees labor boards and other commissions and boards concerned with employment law matters.
We provide training for businesses and employees. The best employment law disputes are the ones that never happened because employers and employees were well-informed about their rights and obligations. We write and prepare handbooks and policies that define those rights and obligations, we provide training, and we advise employers and employees on various issues such as computer use in an attempt to resolve disputed issues.
