Employment Law Defense


At Sloane and Walsh, LLP we have decades of experience providing counseling, negotiation and litigation services to corporate clients and individuals in all aspects of the employer-employee relationship.

Sloane and Walsh attorneys counsel employers to manage any issues that may arise during the employment life cycle. We have represented employers in discrimination, harassment and retaliation lawsuits on the basis of disability, age, race, gender, nationality, religion and sexual orientation discrimination brought under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Family and Medical Leave
Act. In addition, we have defended employers against wrongful termination, hostile work environment, invasion of privacy and breach of contract claims. We are also retained by insurance companies to defend wage and hour disputes, regulatory investigations and other actions that arise in the workplace.

Our attorneys have also represented individual employees by providing advice, negotiations and representation concerning the terms of employment and compensation, restrictive covenants, and
termination and severance protection.

Sloane and Walsh attorneys have successfully handled cases across the full spectrum of employment law before all state, federal and appellate courts and administrative agencies, including, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration. We provide our clients with a vigorous, thorough and well-reasoned advocacy that is aimed at achieving the best possible result.

We recognize that the relationship between employer and employee is integral to the success of any business, and when appropriate we strive to protect those relationships by educating clients about how to proactively prevent future claims from employees. While a signature of our practice is defending against claims in negotiation or trial, we are also proud of our ability to counsel clients about liability and litigation prevention.
