Larry advises clients regarding personnel issues, including hiring and firing lawfully, FMLA compliance, drug and alcohol testing, Fair Labor Standards Act compliance, and government contracting. He also has extensive experience in the development and preparation of employment agreements, employee handbooks, confidentiality and non-compete agreements, affirmative action plans, separation agreements and releases, and independent contractor agreements.
Larry also practices in the firm’s litigation area, in which he represents employers with issues such as the defense of all forms of discrimination and wrongful termination claims, OSHA citations, FMLA claims, and individual and collective action wage-hour claims. He also represents clients in initiating non-compete and trade secret litigation and in responding to EEOC, OCRC and state agency discrimination charges.
Another aspect of Larry’s practice - in addition to employment law - is the representation of management as it relates to union-related issues. He is skilled in matters regarding structuring responses to union organizational attempts, collective bargaining negotiations, grievances, arbitration and more.
