If your organization is sued for discrimination or harassment, wage payment issues, biometric privacy violations, or wrongful termination, Much’s labor and employment attorneys will devise strategies suited to your business needs and objectives. Some employers want to vigorously fight to discourage copycat lawsuits. Others prefer to focus on a prompt resolution. We help you evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your case and recommend available solutions with an eye toward the potential short-term and long-term impacts on your business.

There also are times when you need to take the offensive. After an executive or other valued employee resigns, you may discover that they are now working for a competitor and have misappropriated your confidential information or trade secrets to compete with you or to solicit your customers. It may be necessary to seek injunctive relief against your former employee and their new employer to protect your critical business interests. Much attorneys can recommend efficient and cost-effective ways to enforce your restrictive covenant agreements and use federal and state trade secrets laws for the benefit of your organization.

Regardless of the nature of the employment-based claims that you may face, our attorneys try cases in federal and state courts across the country. We also defend claims and charges filed with administrative agencies at the federal, state, and local level. Chances are Much has litigated a case similar to the one you need to defend or prosecute:
