Company Legal Counsel and Employment Litigation Defense
Our employment attorneys regularly advise business owners and employers on Minnesota and federal employment law to ensure legal compliance and handle difficult employees. We draft employee handbooks, HR policies, and defend businesses against improper employee claims.
C Level & Company Executives
Employment law affords special protection to employees because there is a concern that the company has leverage because of its size and sophistication. Employees rely on their jobs to live. Thus, the law gives employees special rights. Executives who have been treated unfairly or illegally should contact a Minnesota employment attorney for case analysis and evaluation of their legal rights and options.
Our employment attorneys regularly represent companies and executives in claims and litigation involving
- unpaid wages
- wrongful termination
- severe harassment in the workplace
- workers compensation
- unemployment appeals
- breach of employment agreement
These claims may arise in federal court, state court, and state agencies.

Small Businesses are Not Entirely Exempt from Employment Laws
Small business owners with employees are still subject to a large number of employment legal requirements. Small business owners are excluded from some employment law mandates for large companies, but a substantial portion of employment laws apply equally to small businesses. A Minnesota employment lawyer can provide counsel to small business owners, helping them avoid legal trouble or deal with claims by an employee or ex-employee.
