Helping Our Clients Succeed

The relationship between employers and employees is fraught with legal pitfalls. Employers of all sizes and in every industry must remain compliant with the many federal and state regulations and statutes applicable to employee relations. Because employment and labor law is one of the most heavily litigated areas of practice, it is critical to retain counsel that understands every facet of employment law in order to aggressively defend the employer. McDonald Carano has represented businesses and other clients involved in all phases of the employment relationship. The results of our employment litigation are among the best in the state.

When addressing a labor-related matter, sitting back is simply not an option. We are dedicated to a client-focused approach, one that entails a high level of service and personal attention. We want to know you, your preferences, and your objectives. We are appreciated for our assertive yet pragmatic approach to litigation, mediation, arbitration, labor negotiations and representation before administrative agencies like the Nevada Equal Rights Commission, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the U.S. Department of Labor. At the outset of any matter, we uncover and leverage every relevant fact in order to best advise our client. If a complaint lacks merit, we advise defending the case, which often results in disposing of the groundless claims through summary judgment during litigation or at trial. Our employment and labor expertise is truly far-reaching:

• Wrongful termination and retaliation.
• Discrimination and harassment.
• Wage and hour law (exemptions, overtime, commissions, etc.).
• Employee privacy.
• Breach of confidentiality.
• Workers’ compensation.
• Unfair competition and trade secrets.
• Employee raiding, computer sabotage and client solicitation.
• Leave and other benefits.
• Employee health and safety.
• OSHA investigations and citations.
• Counseling and training employers and employees.
• Federal contractor compliance.
