Protecting your business.

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

  • Harassment, discrimination and retaliation
  • Wage and hour matters
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Hiring and firing
  • Confidentiality and trade secrets
  • 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.

Our practice is based on four pillars essential to representing businesses in all aspects of employment law. The first pillar is the most imperative, providing our clients with a solid foundation to support their thriving work environment with documents and best practices to reduce risk. The second is offering on-demand advice, delivering answers regarding various employment law issues as they arise. The third is a strong defense, where we passionately advocate for our clients in negotiation and litigation, when the disputes cannot be avoided. The fourth pillar encompasses workplace investigations, which we conduct thoroughly when the employer needs to dig deeper. We take great pride in offering these pillars to our clients, and we believe they are imperative to their stability and prosperity.
