Baltimore, MD Employment Defense Litigation Attorney
Ken C. GauveyPersonal Injury Attorney
Employers are often concerned about litigation and lawsuits because it disrupts the work environment, damages commercial reputations, and puts the entire company at risk. Employment litigation is in many ways different from other types of commercial litigation because a lawsuit often centers on your company’s overall culture and management. Employers all across the country have become more aware and sensitive to employee morale and many have actively sought to keep litigation to a minimum through hiring human resource departments and developing training for employees and management.
However, even despite these efforts by employers, employment litigation lawsuits have seen a significant rise over the last few decades. In addition to individual private plaintiffs who are filing more complaints in state and federal court, the Federal government has taken a more active role in filing employment actions. While many suits are settled out of court, plaintiff and government attorneys have brought many notable cases to trial resulting in devastating rulings against employers who approach litigation haphazardly.
Our employment litigation defense practice represents employers in all aspects of employment law. Our experience extends to state and federal courts as well as government agencies. As a valued business partner, we recognize that early resolution and proactive measures is often the best course of action. Our practice recognizes that by finding solutions to issues and complaints in the workplace, it is possible to help employers avoid going to court altogether.
