Employment Litigation
Since the adoption of the National Labor Relations Act, both the federal and state governments, as well as the courts, have significantly expanded opportunities for employees to sue employers for work-related conditions.

Statutes such as the ADA, ADEA, FMLA, and Civil Rights Act of 1964 are consistently evolving, while newly enacted statutes such as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act ("GINA") are expanding the scope of liability to which employers are exposed.

Dell, Moser, Lane and Loughney, LLC advises clients on the multiplicity of employment laws that affect employment decisions that must be made regarding an individual's recruitment for, retention in, and, if warranted, separation from employment. This advice gives employers confidence in making the tough decisions they are faced with, and assists in the crafting of policies and procedures that insulate employers from potential liability.

Our experienced staff of employment litigation attorneys have successfully handled cases arising under each theory of liability. When litigation is inevitable, we stand by our client's side and aggressively defend the case. We have the knowledge and skill to immediately pinpoint and expose flaws in a case, and to identify areas of the law that preclude the theories of liability being presented. This often results in the dismissal of groundless cases in the earlier stages of litigation, thus avoiding the time and expense of a trial. We also have a number of attorneys who focus their practice in workers' compensation, which allows us to draw from their wealth of experience in claims made under the ADA and FMLA. We work hand in hand with our clients' human resource departments to ensure an aggressive and thorough defense of these cases.
