Lindquist and Vennum's labor and employment lawyers have devoted their careers to helping clients implement proficient risk management strategies, comply with complex employment laws and regulations, and resolve workplace problems and disputes. There is no substitute for our experience in defending and advising clients on hot-button, high-risk labor and employment law issues including background checks and testing, employee vs. independent contractor classifications, confidentiality agreements, non-compete agreements, social media, overtime, immigration, sexual harassment, affirmative action, reasonable accommodation, leaves of absences, whistleblower and retaliation claims.
Our client base is as diverse as the business community in which we work. We pride ourselves on understanding each client’s business and the industry in which they operate to provide day-to day legal advice, employment assessments, workplace investigations, managerial training, educational seminars, to develop proactive policies and procedures, and affirmative action programs. We also represent our clients in contract negotiations, charges of discrimination, government audits, lawsuits, administrative claims, and unemployment compensation appeals.
