In today’s climate, businesses face increasing compliance issues in every facet of employment relations. The most effective way to avoid litigation is to take preventative steps to minimize the risk. Neil Dymott provides consulting services and legal representation to employers to assist them in understanding and complying with relevant federal and state regulations, including requirements of employment-related statutes, Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, ERISA, and the Fair Labor Standards Act.
The attorneys at Neil Dymott are experienced litigators in employment-related issues, including contracts, wage and hour claims, discrimination, harassment, retaliation and wrongful termination. In the event employment conflicts go to trial, we work closely and effectively with our clients to develop and implement strategic, aggressive, and well-documented trial strategies that minimize risk and maximize outcome for the client. We are experienced not only in pursuing an aggressive, yet cost-effective defense, but also in taking the time to help our clients improve their policies, procedures and training to reduce the risk of future claims.
To ensure an employer’s practices are compliant with current law, we work with employers to draft and/or review employee handbooks, employment contracts, personnel policies, training manuals, disciplinary procedures, appropriate communications, and hiring and employment termination documentation. Proper compliance with internal procedures, applicable local, state and federal laws and regulations, careful documentation, training of employees, and early involvement of counsel can mitigate an employer's risk. With the proper strategies in place, employers can work from a position of knowledge and strength, rather than vulnerability.
Neil Dymott’s highly skilled trial attorneys are equally adept in handling administrative hearings as well as client education and consultation. Our attorneys have litigated cases in both state and federal courts for clients across the country and have assisted in cases involving employers outside the U.S. We represent employers and employees in a wide variety of matters from the preparation of employee handbooks to class action representation. Our clients recognize that not only can we advise them regarding employment law, but also that we are uniquely qualified to counsel them on how employment issues will be resolved in the courtroom.
