The attorneys in Messerli Kramer’s Employment Law & Counseling group represent employers of all sizes in a variety of areas, including creating and advising on employment policies and employee handbooks; discrimination and harassment; executive compensation; hiring and firing; performance management; leaves of absence; FMLA and ADA compliance; wage and hour law; non-compete and non-solicitation agreements; and general employment practices audits.

Our attorneys also represent key executives in transitioning employment, focusing on negotiating and advising on non-compete restrictions, equity buy-outs and separation compensation.

We also represent clients in responding to inquiries from the EEOC, Department of Labor, National Labor Relations Board, State Departments of Human Rights and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
