Labor and Employment

Our lawyers understand the pressures that today’s companies, boards of directors, compensation committees, management teams and individual executives face. We will help guide you through the myriad of challenges. Often the main challenge is complying with rapidly changing legal requirements that vary widely from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Our clients come to us for strategic, board-level advice on crucial employment, compensation and benefits-related issues, as well as day-to-day support on complex issues.

When crises do occur, managing employee discrimination claims can be one of the most legally complex and challenging events for any business. Waltz|Reeves offers the skills, experience and resources to help any client, large or small, meet such a challenge. We work closely with our clients’ managers and managers to meet the specific needs of each client and successfully represent employers in employment litigation before federal and state courts, agencies, and arbitration panels. This includes representing employers in employment tort, employee discharge, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, ADEA, and other discrimination, OSHA, ERISA, labor, and other employment matters.

Waltz|Reeves recognizes that wage and hour claims are on the rise. More and more businesses have been sued by employees claiming they were misclassified as independent contractors, or otherwise denied minimum wage and overtime pay. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a complex law with a detailed set of regulations that are often misunderstood. The risk of a mistake in this area is great, given the potential for a collective action, which multiplies liability, and the availability of liquidated (i.e., double) damages and attorneys’ fees to the successful plaintiff. Our lawyers have extensive experience with FLSA compliance and can help your business avoid these risks. If your business has been hit with a wage/hour or FLSA lawsuit, we will defend you in the most cost-efficient and effective manner.
