A legal dispute between an employer and employee differs from the traditional commercial dispute in that it may disrupt your work environment and potentially damage a business’ reputation. For the past three decades, Oppenheim Law has regularly defended companies in defending employment-related matters concerning unpaid hourly wages, unpaid overtime, workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, and family medical leave act.
The Firm has also successfully brought actions on behalf of our various corporate clients concerning violations of non-compete agreements, and the improper taking of trade secrets. Typically, these cases are brought on an extended basis through a temporary injunction that prohibits the employee from working for a competitor through the pendency of the matter. These injunction hearings are fast trials that frequently resolve the matter. We have had much success in this area of the law and are particularly well versed in the field. It is important that you understand the stages of litigation and the unique challenges that you may face at every turn. At Oppenheim Law, we will explore all avenues with you so that you may make the best decision for your business.
