    The relationship between employers and employees is highly regulated and is becoming more so with the enactment of complex laws and the issuance of various court decisions. Both public and private organizations must operate under an unprecedented level of scrutiny. Noncompliance carries the risk of government investigation, administrative penalties and costly litigation.

    Locke Lord's labor & employment lawyers are recognized as seasoned counselors in the details of the federal and state employment statutes and common law, including statutes such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and similar state and local laws. Locke Lord's employment lawyers also routinely represent employers before the agencies and courts that enforce those laws. We routinely advise clients on all matters affecting the employment relationship, including recruitment, hiring, management, retention, discipline and termination.
