Employment Law

Harper Whitwell offers a broad range of services to individuals and employers alike. We advise and represent clients on employment issues ranging from wrongful termination, employment discrimination, retaliation, wage claims and sexual harassment to the interpretation and enforcement of employment contracts, post-employment restrictive covenants, change of control agreements, and ERISA benefit plans.

Our attorneys bring to this practice area extensive experience in litigation, representing both employers, employees and insurers.

At the same time, we emphasize risk aversion and lawsuit avoidance. We provide advice and training to businesses regarding their legal obligations and personnel practices; draft personnel policies and manuals; and negotiate employment and severance agreements for both individuals and companies.
