We advise clients on matters involving federal, state, and local employment laws that impact their workplaces daily, including the following federal laws (and their state-law equivalents):

    • Title VII
    • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
    • The Americans with Disabilities Act
    • The Older Workers’ Benefit Protection Act

    We help employers navigate all aspects of managing their employees, including helping them develop and maintain strategies and decisions that minimize their workplace risks and liability, related to:
    • Hiring, termination and employee discipline
    • Wage and hour issues
    • Negotiation and drafting of employment contracts, severance/separation agreements and independent contractor agreements
    • Development of, and training on, workplace policies and practices
    • Employee disabilities and reasonable accommodation-related issues
    • Workplace diversity, equity and inclusion
    • Discrimination, harassment and retaliation complaints and investigations

    Employment Litigation

    When litigation is necessary because amicable resolution is not possible, we defend our clients in state and federal court and before applicable administrative agencies.

    Workplace Investigations

    When employee complaints in the workplace arise, it is often advisable for employers to use outside counsel to conduct an independent investigation. Dailey LLP attorneys have extensive experience in conducting such investigations. You can trust that our attorneys will handle these matters discreetly and efficiently, serving as a valuable, behind-the-scenes resource.

    Compliance Audits

    Dailey LLP conducts comprehensive and targeted workplace audits to help our clients proactively identify and address compliance weakness areas. Dailey LLP also assists our clients in preparing for, responding to, and complying with regulatory audits conducted in their workplaces.

    Counsel For Employees

    Dailey LLP has extensive experience counseling and representing employees in a broad spectrum of employment law matters. We advise employees on their legal rights in the workplace and, when necessary, advocate on their behalf to protect those rights through negotiation, alternative dispute resolution and litigation.

    We also counsel executives and professionals through all phases of their employment relationship and draft, review and negotiate employment contracts, severance/separation agreements and restrictive covenants, including noncompetition and nonsolicitation agreements.
