Employment Litigation

Cummins & White’s professional and dynamic Labor and Employment Practice Group takes pride in our ability to guide clients in minimizing their risk of employment litigation. However, we can defend you vigorously in the courts and before government agencies when that is the right thing to do. We provide employment litigation to defend employers of all sizes against all forms of employee claims from the time an allegation is first made to resolution at trial.

We defend our clients in employee claims pertaining to:

  • Sex, race, age, and disability discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Breach of contract
  • Discrimination claims relating to hiring, firing, promotion, and compensation
  • Wrongful termination

In addition, we represent our clients in disputes involving:

  • Defamation
  • Non-competition
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Trade secrets

We also defend our clients in all forms of wage and hour claims, including:

  • Wage and hour violations
  • Failure to pay prevailing wage
  • Family and Medical Leave Act violations

Cummins & White attorneys also are adept at resolving problems through alternative dispute resolution at the administrative level (arbitration and mediation). We strive to keep our clients fully informed throughout the litigation process to allow our clients to make informed and cost-conscious decisions regarding settlement, alternative dispute resolution, and trial.
