Employment Law: Employment Law is a unique arena of law that governs the affiliations between employers and employees and comprises both federal statutes and company specific rules. There are many aspects of the employer/employee and employee/employee relationships and a multitude of legal issues that can arise in securing a new position or employee, maintaining a harmonious work environment, or terminating working relationship. See below for specific examples.
Discrimination: No one should be wrongly targeted in the workplace. Being the subject of or defending a claim of discrimination, whether it is based on sex, race, religion, or other reason that is unrelated to job performance can be stressful, and knowing what steps to take can be confusing. The attorneys at Gibbs & Mabe can assist in all steps of a discrimination action, from dealing with the incident in question, through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) investigation, to settlement negotiations, and throughout the litigation process.
Severance Packages: The best time to negotiate your severance package is before you accept a new job. However, if you find yourself without a job, and a severance offer in front of you, then you may be forced to negotiate from a more difficult position. Under such circumstances, success will depend on your legal and professional leverage, as perceived by your employer. Navigating these issues alone is daunting. The attorneys at Gibbs & Mabe can help you throughout each step in the process.
Education Law: Education law is an area of law that governs the relationships and interactions between students, teachers, and administrators. It includes federal and state statutes, as well as possible constitutional issues. The attorneys at Gibbs & Mabe have close to two decades of experience in the field of education and represent both public and private school students, teachers, and administrators.
