Representing employers in the litigation, negotiation and arbitration/ADR of employment-related disputes is a longtime Day Pitney strength and a cornerstone practice of our firm. Our employment litigators not only have outstanding trial records but also have the proven ability to help clients solve problems in innovative, cost-effective ways before litigation becomes an option.
No matter what employment-related dispute confronts your company, it is likely that we have solved a similar problem. Our recent cases have included class actions alleging race and sex discrimination in hiring, job placement, promotion, discipline and working conditions, covenants not to compete and trade secret theft, whistleblowers of all stripes including those making claims under Sarbanes-Oxley, and wage and hour and ERISA individual and class-action claims. We also have addressed emerging issues such as image discrimination and employee privacy. With more than 50 employment litigators across the firm, we have the resources and depth to mount a rapid, effective response.
A principal area of practice is the defense of employment discrimination suits. We represent management in discrimination actions of all kinds, including claims alleging age, race, gender, national origin, religion and disability discrimination. In our clients' defense, we regularly appear before federal and state courts and administrative agencies. Day Pitney is a firm with the experience to prevail in these sensitive and often complicated cases. We have tried or otherwise resolved thousands of discrimination cases across the country for employers in various industries, from small, privately held companies to large, multinational public companies.
Our lawyers regularly handle non-competition agreement controversies, which frequently involve an immediate need for swift action either to prevent the breach of a non-competition agreement or to defend against allegations that our clients' actions violate such an agreement. Day Pitney's team is ready to devote immediate attention when this kind of dispute arises, and aggressively approaches the matter without losing sight of the premium that many clients place on finding a quick, practical solution.
