Employment/Labor Law

NeunerPate regularly acts as counsel for employers involved with employment and labor law cases. We have accumulated significant experience in interpreting and construing state and federal statutes and case law in such areas as employment discrimination; sexual harassment; employee benefits; whistleblower litigation; wrongful discharge; and employment contracts.

The firm uses its business and litigation experience to assist clients to take pre-emptive measures in avoiding litigation by reviewing employment policies and guidelines, as well as employee handbooks and training manuals. Firm attorneys also educate clients on new developments in employment law, enabling clients to avoid issues of non-compliance presented by the ever-changing realm of this discipline, both at the state and federal levels.

In the face of litigation, NeunerPate provides superior knowledge and experience navigating the complex set of federal and state mandates in order to afford our client the best protection possible. Post-resolution, our attorneys follow up with administrative procedures and documentation of practices, both internally and for external policies in order to minimize future exposure to liability.

Requests for NeunerPate’s training seminars for corporate responsibility regarding employment discrimination — including sexual harassment, race and age – have increased dramatically as corporate clients strive to remain compliant and current. Clients who retain the firm for employment & labor law services include a national retail chain, the State of Louisiana and its various agencies thereof, insurance companies, adjusters and a variety of oil & gas related companies. Our attorneys regularly provide defense and counsel for matters including personal injury claims, workers’ compensation claims, discrimination suits and a myriad of unique employment issues.
