Colorado Employment Lawyers
Employment law is a broad and complex area of practice that requires the advice of skilled legal counsel. The firm of Lapin | Lapin, P.C. assists both employees and employers in these matters. We are available for representation and advice on employment law issues including:
Lapin | Lapin, P.C. provides advice and counsel to its employer clients on how to design and implement fair and nondiscriminatory policies in hiring, supervising, and terminating employees. We can assist in the protection of proprietary information and trade secrets. We are efficient and cost-effective in drafting employment contracts and separation agreements, from the simple to the complex.
Wrongful termination and discrimination claims may arise when an employer fails to follow its own policies or violates the law by treating people differently based on such things as race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, veteran status, age, or disability. Discriminatory practices may occur in hiring, firing, job assignment, compensation, and benefits. We advise our employer or employee clients of their rights and remedies when issues of inequitable compensation, illegal harassment, discrimination, or retaliation arise.
We have represented employer and employee clients in many types of employment disputes, involving claims such as unpaid wages, wrongful discharge, sexual harassment and other types of illegal discrimination, breach of contract, and the enforceability of covenants not to compete.
We believe our experience in representing both employers and employees gives us a unique and well-informed perspective. We help our employer clients to implement policies and practices that fit their business needs and are fair to their employees, thereby protecting them from potential claims. When an employee client comes to Lapin | Lapin with a claim of wrongful discharge, discrimination, retaliation, or unpaid wages, among others, we are well prepared to provide effective representation to reach a resolution.
When disputes arise, we explore alternative methods of resolution so that our clients can have as much control as possible over the outcome, and when adversary proceedings are inevitable, we are prepared to represent our clients zealously before administrative agencies, in arbitrations, in court or jury trials, and throughout the appellate process.
