About Employment Law

Employment law encompasses everything from preventative business organization to avoid employment disputes, to litigation services when a compromise cannot be reached.

Over the years, we have represented both businesses and employees in employment-related disputes. As a result, we have a broad range of experience from which to draw when anticipating and assessing potential employment-law issues. Our firm has represented clients in forums ranging from the United States District Court, to Vermont state courts at the trial and appellate level, to the Vermont Human Rights Commission. Other disputes have been resolved without court intervention.

Employment disputes can often be avoided through proactive business planning. Our team can prepare and review express contracts of employment, including non-competition agreements, non-raid agreements, and confidentiality agreements. We can also draft and review documents designed to clearly communicate the terms of employment, such as personnel manuals or employee handbooks. Should a dispute arise, we’re prepared to advise you on manners related to severance pay, releases of claims, reference letters, and the enforceability of agreements such as non-competition contracts.
