Practice Areas Employment

Smart, Responsive, Focused.  These three words best describe the attorneys of Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s Employment Practices Group.  Our experienced team of employment attorneys offers cost-effective solutions to clients’ real-world, everyday challenges. Whether they are representing an employer or an individual, our attorneys commit themselves to achieving the client’s goals and understanding the risks the client faces in their industry.  

Our services help remedy issues after they arise, but they also prevent them from happening in the first instance. The best way to avoid legal issues from occurring is to have well-negotiated contracts in place so that the employer and employee both understand their rights and obligations. For employers, we also provide workplace compliance training and employee handbook drafting to prevent problems before they can emerge.

When disputes do arise, we help clients resolve them quickly and favorably.  With decades of experience, we help our clients across multiple industries – media, manufacturing, professional and financial services, franchise and hospitality, energy and utilities, and transportation and logistics. 

Our attorneys routinely handle cases before state, federal and appellate courts as well as state and federal administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Department of Labor and state and local human relations commissions. We routinely litigate cases involving wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, civil rights claims, Title VII, the federal law governing employment discrimination as well as cases involving the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in addition to those involving state and federal wage laws. 

Our attorneys have extensive experience defending clients against workers’ compensation claims. They understand the complex interplay between workers’ compensation and employment law. They never lose sight of their clients’ interests when litigating and resolving disputes. In addition, our team litigates the spectrum of claims under the Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Disease Acts.
