Employment Practices Liability
For more than 20 years, the Employment Practices Liability group at Collins Einhorn Farrell PC has helped employers navigate the ever-changing waters of employee litigation and workplace regulation. We have defended employers in both state and federal courts against claims of wrongful discharge, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
Our attorneys begin each case by thoroughly researching and analyzing the facts. With this background, we either identify legal defenses that lead to summary dismissal of the case, or determine factual defenses that limit the plaintiff’s chances of recovery and damages if the case proceeds to trial. We have an outstanding record of securing early dismissals.
The attorneys in the Employment Practices Liability group are experienced at defending employers against tort claims such as defamation, intentional interference with business relations, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Each attorney is also experienced in representing employers before agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Michigan Department of Civil Rights, the Michigan Unemployment Agency, and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth.
In addition to representing employers in court proceedings, our team is available to advise employers on disciplinary matters, termination decisions, medical leave, and wage and hour issues. We also draft or revise employee handbooks and provide equal employment training to staff.
If you have any questions regarding our Employment Practices Liability group or any of our practice areas, we invite you to call us at (248) 355-4141.
