In the case of disputes, our attorneys can help with years of experience and effective solutions. LKC’s primary objective is to provide practical employment advice to prevent workplace disputes from escalating into formal legal proceedings.
When disputes cannot be resolved informally, our attorneys are prepared to litigate. Our trusted Labor & Employment attorneys regularly represent management in state and federal courts throughout the country, as well as before federal, state, and local administrative agencies. From high stakes multi-plaintiff litigation to single plaintiff discrimination cases, our litigators have the substantive expertise necessary to assist our clients to position themselves in the best possible way.
At LKC, clients can expect top-notch legal representation during all facets of their military and civilian careers. Our attorneys understand the unique circumstances facing federal employees and government contractors, and can offer specialized, nation-wide assistance in the following legal issues and matters:
Disciplinary or Adverse Actions: When employees have been proposed for disciplinary and/or adverse actions, it is important to retain knowledgeable counsel to timely and robustly respond to these allegations. Employees should, if possible, respond in writing and verbally to dispute, explain, and mitigate the stated charges. They should similarly guard against letters of reprimand, counseling statements, suspensions, demotions, and removals on their records.
Discrimination and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Claims: Many employees are protected against discrimination, harassment, and hostile work environments. LKC can assist employers and employees throughout the administrative and, if necessary judicial processes.
Reasonable Accommodations and Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA): In the event an employee suffers from a serious medical condition, a discussion about potential reasonable accommodations may be initiated. Medical conditions can sometimes negatively impact work performance and/or attendance, and by working with the client and treating physicians, LKC attorneys can pinpoint accommodations that could alleviate these issues. Our firm’s attorneys can assist clients and their medical professionals to properly address these circumstances.
