When business decisions affecting employees are made, or other problems arise, disputes can occur and may escalate to litigation. Labor and employment litigation does not necessarily mean that an employer has done something wrong In fact, many employers who attempt to do everything right can and do get sued. It is an unfortunate cost of doing business in a litigious society. When disputes end up before the courts, they are frequently protracted, time-consuming and expensive.
If you are facing a workplace litigation issue, you need experienced labor and employment counsel on your side. Having a well-equipped legal team as your advocate can make all the difference. Kamer Zucker Abbott has extensive experience representing employers in almost every area of workplace discrimination and civil rights laws. We represent employers in federal and state courts as well as in administrative proceedings before government agencies. Whenever appropriate, we pursue arbitration, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution to resolve claims short of litigation.
Our attorneys represent both public and private employers before the United States Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the United States District Court for the District of Nevada and all Nevada state courts, including the Nevada Supreme Court. We defend claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation under all applicable state and federal statutes, as well as employment-related contract and tort claims.
