Employment law requires an awareness of fast-breaking legal developments and complex regulatory changes. Our experienced Wichita employment attorneys continually monitor these developments to counsel clients to minimize the risk of litigation. For example, many employment disputes can be avoided by careful review of company policies to ensure they are up-to-date with current state and federal law.
Concerning workers' compensation, we keep our clients informed of statutory changes and provide proactive counsel by explaining their rights and duties to ensure compliance with statutory law.
Our employment lawyers can work with company leadership and HR departments on a range of employment-related matters, including regulatory compliance, safety policies, workers' compensation, preparation of workplace policies and employee handbooks, and advising on employment contracts and agreements.
Should disputes arise, our employment lawyers are experienced in the representation of clients both in court and before government agencies. Our employment litigation attorneys have successfully defended numerous discrimination and wrongful termination claims, as well as suits based on alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and National Labor Relations Act.
We also are active in proceedings based on the Kansas employment security law, including unemployment compensation matters and employee status determinations.
Our workers' compensation litigation team prevails by focusing on legal analysis, and our lawyers are often consulted by other Kansas counsel about the possibility of overlooked defenses. We pursue extensive investigation into statements that include the location of the accident, the circumstances of an alleged job-related injury, and that proper and timely notice was given and all deadlines were met.
In addition, we recommend preventative measures to help clients avoid future workers' compensation claims. Find out more about this practice area on our Workers' Compensation page.
