Labor & Employment

Disputes between employers and employees can be costly and highly disruptive. When conflicts arise in the workplace, the labor and employment attorneys at Hackleman, Olive & Judd provide skilled advice and legal defense to employers of all sizes and in all industries. Recognizing that ongoing employment disputes can seriously harm a company’s reputation and destroy employee morale, we work closely with our clients in developing cost-effective strategies to resolve these matters.

Our legal team is widely recognized for our ability to handle complex and sophisticated employment disputes, including class action labor and employment claims. Our lawyers counsel and vigorously defend clients dealing with all types of workforce issues, such as:

  • Executive compensation agreements
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Labor certification
  • Title VII
  • Title IX
  • Civil rights violations
  • Discrimination (gender, race, age, disability, national origin, and religion)
  • Sexual harassment
  • Wrongful termination
  • Wage and overtime claims
  • Department of Labor investigations
  • Safety and health standards
  • Class action claims

When a Fort Lauderdale employment dispute attorney at our firm handles a case, the attorney assembles a legal team focused on minimizing our client’s exposure and protecting their important business interests. While we are able to successfully resolve a large portion of “right to sue” letters at the EEOC level prior to the case entering the federal court system, our lawyers are seasoned trial attorneys who know how to effectively defend employment claims before judges, juries, and administrative bodies. Whether we are taking a high-stakes labor and employment claim to court, arbitration, or mediation, we work to develop strategies that best present our client’s position and fully expose the weaknesses in our opponents’ cases.
