Employment Agreements

We frequently draft and review employment contracts and agreements and can advise employees on potential issues arising from various contract provisions, including restrictive covenants, e.g., covenants not to compete and not to steal customers, customer lists,  proprietary information or trade secrets.

  • Sexual harassment, hostile work environment, slander, defamation and constructive discharge

  • Unemployment benefits

  • Wrongful termination

We have represented current and former employees in administrative claims (e.g., discrimination or other regulatory issues) before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Civil Rights Division of the Arizona Attorney General's Office, the Pinal County Employee Merit Commission, and the Pinal County Law Enforcement Merit Commission.
