  • Common law and contractual law regarding the employment relationship

The attorneys of Vandeveer Garzia advise and represent clients in employment matters on a regular basis.  We represent clients involved in claims and law suits.  We advise and represent clients in employment matters at times when litigation is anticipated or threatened.  Those matters could involve disputes between employers and employees, discrimination matters, employee termination and harassment.  We also advise clients on the application and impact of insurance issues and insurance coverage related to employment claims.

Many claims and rights in the area of employment law involve very short deadlines, response times or time frames in which an employee or employer must act.  If an employment claim, matter or issue arises, or is anticipated, contact us as soon as possible.
