Labor & Employment
The legal rights of employees are of great importance in the workplace. The Firm regularly represents both employers and employees in matters involving the employment relationship. From helping our clients avoid workplace issues to litigating such disputes when they arise, our attorneys are skilled and experienced at protecting both employers and employees.
When the workplace is running smoothly, we can help employers continue to avoid disputes by implementing and monitoring employment manuals, non-compete agreements, and policies involving discrimination, harassment, affirmative action, immigration, and drug and alcohol testing. The Firm can also assist employers with legal compliance when it comes time for workforce reductions or termination of the employer-employee relationship.
When disputes arise, we routinely represent employers and employees in front of the Kansas state and federal courts, Kansas Human Rights Commission, and the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, in matters involving:
- Title VII
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Workplace accidents
- Wrongful discharge
- Intellectual property, including confidentiality and secrets
At Kennedy Berkley Yarnevich & Williamson, Chartered, we provide cost-effective and proactive counseling to ensure unwanted employment disputes do not interfere with an employer's competitive stance in the markeplace. When employment and labor issues arise, our attorneys aggressively represent the interests of employers and employees in the appropriate forum.
