Labor & Employment

There are more than 6.8 million employer firms in the United States—and our client is the most important.  With experience in-house and as outside counsel, the attorneys at Swansburg & Smith, PLLC, have a long track record of success providing guidance to, and representing, employers across multiple venues.  Additionally, having worked as government regulators in the labor and employment sector, we have a unique perspective to bring value to their business.

In the area of labor and employment, our services include:

  • Employee discipline

  • Wage-and-hour claims and appeals

  • Occupational safety and health claims and appeals

  • Workers’ compensation compliance and appeals

  • Unemployment insurance claims and appeals

  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) advice and litigation

  • Unlawful discrimination (Title VII, Kentucky Civil Rights Act, ADEA, etc.)

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) advice and litigation

  • Employment contract drafting and review

  • Severance agreement drafting and review

  • Employee handbook / policies drafting and review

  • Restrictive covenants and non-compete clause advice and litigation

And because we have sat on the client’s side of the table, we understand that many of these services can, and should, be provided at a flat rate that clients know and agree to before we write the first word.  We want our clients to focus on the process of making their products or providing their services to consumers.  Our job is to help them deal with the “H” part of HR.
