Council Baradel’s employment attorneys are widely respected for their knowledge and experience in the complex and constantly evolving area of employment law. They closely follow the rapidly changing developments in laws and technologies affecting the workplace in order to provide our clients appropriate and up-to-date advice.

Our attorneys routinely handle employment matters involving:  harassment, discrimination and retaliation; wage and hour matters; non-compete agreements; employment agreements; hiring and firing; employment contracts; disability and leave matters arising out of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act; National Labor Relations Act matters, and compliance with other federal, state and local employment laws.

Firm attorneys litigate employment matters in federal and state courts and before government agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the Department of Labor, the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights, and other agencies.

Our attorneys work with clients to prepare employment documents and best practices to develop best practices and reduce risk to the client.  Well-drafted contracts, non-compete agreements, commission policies, and related documents help companies to establish a solid foundation for their relationships with their employees.  The Firm’s attorneys also counsel clients and their Human Resources departments on issues arising out of hiring, disciplining, and terminating employees, as well as navigating the difficult and expanding web of laws governing employee leave.

The Firm’s employment attorneys are frequently asked to present seminars and training sessions to clients, business groups, and even other lawyers on a variety of employment-related matters.  Follow our employment law attorneys on LinkedIn and Twitter for insight into the latest issues in employment law.

Council Baradel primarily represents companies and their management but also represents employees in certain matters such as wage and hour claims, contract review, negotiation and disputes, non-compete disputes, and severance agreements, to name a few.
