Labor and Employment

From advising employers on how to develop sound policies for workers to representing a business owner through a government investigation, our Labor and Employment team helps clients achieve their employment-related objectives. This skilled team helps business owners and employers on a host of labor and employment issues, including:

  • Management and prevention of risk before a dispute arises
  • Development of employee handbooks and policies
  • Contracts and non-compete agreements
  • Workplace violence
  • Employee privacy

We also provide legal counsel to employers on issues relating to hiring, compensation, discipline and termination, and we help clients respond to employees’ requests for leave and other accommodations and to complaints of harassment and retaliation.

Our firm has represented employers involved in investigations by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor and the Texas Workforce Commission. In addition, this practice team represents employers in employment litigation, defending them against claims under:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • The Fair Labor Standards Act
  • The Family & Medical Leave Act
  • Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code
  • Chapter 451 of the Texas Labor Code
  • Sabine Pilot
  • Texas tort law and contract law

The team is led by Clayton Hearn, who is board certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
