Whether you are an employer or employee, navigating the complex climate of a workplace can be difficult. When you need to navigate a workplace issue, you are going to want a legal team on your side who has both business and legal experience—that’s where we come in. If you are an employer or employee at a start-up, emerging business, national company, or international corporation, we provide timely, creative, and practical solutions, so you can resolve and/or prevent disputes and costly litigation.

Because of the very broad and deep corporate practice that we have here at Giannascoli & Thomas, PC, we are able to assist employers with the following employment legal services:

Discrimination claims

If you are faced with claims alleging that you treated employees differently based on race, gender, citizenship status or religion, we will provide you with the legal counsel you need to defend these claims. If you are an employer who is being falsely accused of these claims by an employee, we can help you resolve this dispute as well.

Family and medical leave

Although businesses in the United States are not required to provide paid medical leave to their employees, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1963 requires that large businesses offer up to 12 weeks of unpaid medical leave.

Labor regulations

From paying employees’ salaries to paying employees for working overtime, establishing a safe work environment to implementing mandatory breaks, we can assist employers with complying with those labor regulations.

Employee benefits, including:

  • Medical insurance
  • Disability insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Paid time off
  • Retirement benefits
  • Fringe benefits

In addition to assisting with the resolution of disputes within the workplace, Giannascoli & Thomas, PC can also assist you with the following:

 

  • Drafting and negotiation of employment agreements
  • Noncompetition and confidentiality agreements
  • Severance and separation agreements

Small-Firm Support With Large-Firm Level Expertise

Your business and career is more than your bread and butter—it’s also your blood, sweat, and tears, so you deserve to have a legal team that will put their blood, sweat, and tears into protecting your employee rights and what you have built. Unlike with large firms, which make business owners feel like they’re one of many, we make all of our clients feel like they are our first priority, because they are.
