Employment & Labor Law

Our firm represents employers and employees in a wide range of employment related issues.

Employers

The attorneys at Hinkfuss, Sickel, Petitjean & Wieting advise employers on the full spectrum of employment and labor matters and defend their interests in litigation if necessary. In addition to defending employers against wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment cases, we also regularly assist business clients and employers with negotiating and drafting employment contracts, including severance agreements, employment contracts and non-disclosure and non-competition agreements. When property drafted, these types of agreements can assist employers in protecting their legitimate business interests, retaining employees, limiting their liability and safeguarding their confidential and proprietary information.

Employees

Work is extremely important to most employees’ well-being and livelihood. We review contracts and agreements on behalf of employees to ensure that the employee’s rights are protected and to ensure that the employee understands the benefits and ramifications of the agreement and is being treated and compensated fairly and reasonably. We help revise and negotiate all types of agreements on behalf of employees, including employment contracts, non-competition contracts and severance agreements.
