For Executives and Managers

Though many people mistakenly think traditional Labor Law protects only non-management workers, there are federal and state employment laws which also protect Directors and other Executives and Management Employees.  We have substantial experience representing highly compensated, corporate Executives including Directors and other Managers with their employment issues such as severance, non-renewal or breach of employment contract, termination, layoff, retaliation, whistle blowing, age discrimination, sex discrimination, and other forms of employment discrimination.  Below are a few of the cases we’ve handled successfully for Directors and other Executives and Managers.  If you are a Management employee with a similar employment problem, contact us today.
