Employment Law

KRZ provides expert legal advice and representation to employers and individuals in all areas of employment law. Employment law cases, including discrimination, harassment, and wrongful termination suits, are one of the fastest growing areas of litigation. The firm counsels clients on minimizing disputes and misunderstandings, as well as on avoiding costly litigation.

KRZ also assists clients in drafting employment policies, employment contracts and severance agreements. In addition, KRZ advises a broad range of clients on a daily basis in such areas as harassment training and investigation, discipline and termination decisions, medical leave issues, reasonable accommodation issues, employee benefits, and wage and hour questions. We help clients comply with increasingly complex state and federal laws and regulations and minimize their exposure to situations likely to lead to costly litigation.

If litigation becomes inevitable, the firm's trial attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in disputes involving employment discrimination, including sexual harassment and disability discrimination, wrongful termination, breach of contract, noncompetition covenants, family medical leave, ERISA, COBRA, employee benefits, and wage and hour disputes, before federal and state courts, the Maine Human Rights Commission, EEOC, OSNA, and arbitration panels.
