Employment Litigation

Miller and Martin's Labor & Employment department attorneys have wide-ranging experience in numerous federal and state courts across the country. We have successfully defended our clients against the full spectrum of employment and civil rights claims, including those alleging harassment and/or discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, pregnancy, disability/handicap, and marital status; retaliation; wage and hour violations; defamation; negligence and breach of contract; breach of restrictive covenants; actions brought under other employment-related statutes, and related state statutes and causes of action.  These claims have been brought by individual plaintiffs as well as in the form of class and collective actions.

  • Obtained decertification of a class action in an employment discrimination case in which the plaintiffs were represented by Professor Arthur Miller (co-author of the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure governing class litigation) and Stanley Chesley.
