Employment Law

At Margrave Celmins, our attorneys advise and represent our clients on the full gamut of employment law questions from hiring to firing, not to mention the regulatory and compliance issues that can come up in between. To learn how you can manage litigation risk and avoid liability on employment law matters, contact a lawyer at our AV-rated* law firm in Scottsdale.

Our attorneys can guide you through the complex network of state and federal laws that govern how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. We can advise you and represent your interests in such employment law problems as the following:

  • Employment discrimination or affirmative action issues
  • Sexual harassment
  • Employer retaliation claims and whistleblower litigation
  • Wrongful discharge complaints
  • Enforcement or termination of professional or executive employment contracts, including severance negotiations
  • Advise and counsel with respect to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARNA), Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and Arizona laws relating to municipal employment

We regularly act as counsel for the employer in litigation alleging age, race, sex or handicap-access discrimination. Our firm has the experience and logistical capacity to handle class actions and document-intensive litigation matters.

Our ongoing employment law advice can help you avoid litigation by:

  • Insuring your personnel policies are current, compliant and applied fairly and consistently.
  • Assisting in drafting your employee handbook or training manual and effective compliance procedures.

The best way to manage employment litigation risk and avoid liability is to make sure that your personnel policies are current, compliant and applied fairly and consistently. Our attorneys can review your HR and employee management practices to help identify and resolve problem areas.

We can draft your employee handbook or training manual, develop effective complaint investigation procedures, and work with your supervisory personnel to make sure they keep up with the latest developments in state and federal employment law.

Sometimes employment law and business management issues can overlap

In smaller or newer businesses where a partner or major shareholder also performs daily management functions, performance problems or changes in the ownership structure can require attention to both the employment law and partnership or corporate aspects of the situation. Our experience with the resolution of both executive employment and business management or governance problems can lead to an efficient and satisfactory resolution of the situation.
