Melick & Porter has helped clients achieve successful results in a wide variety of employment cases involving allegations of race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, and criminal record discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, wage and hour violations, retaliation, and wrongful termination. Our attorneys regularly appear at state and federal agencies as well as in state and federal courts.
We serve as panel counsel for many large insurers, represent companies in a variety of industries, and act as national coordinating counsel for a national professional employer organization. Employment litigation is a distraction from optimal business performance. Our goal is to minimize the burdens of litigation by providing aggressive and efficient representation at competitive rates so employers can prioritize their business needs. Mindful of the escalating costs of litigation, we collaborate with employers to develop appropriate human resources policies, train personnel on how to prevent discrimination and harassment, and draft employee handbooks to assist employers in managing their potential risk.
We are active members of the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
