Our attorneys are experts in the various facets and legal issues that surround modern day employment and human resource issues.
Laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment continue to expand, and government agencies continue to increase their enforcement activities. Lee + Kinder lawyers assist employers faced with claims of discrimination, harassment and retaliation brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and similar federal and state laws. Our attorneys defend lawsuits in federal and state courts around the country, including class actions and multi-plaintiff cases.
We also defend businesses and property owners in ADA Title III litigation, and represent property owners and associations litigating fair housing claims. Moreover, we work with employers that are responding to individual and systemic discrimination charges brought before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state civil rights agencies, including the Colorado Civil Rights Division (CCRD).
At Lee + Kinder, LLC, we have extensive experience in defense against unfair labor practice charges, compliance actions by various governmental agencies, state unemployment claims, whistleblower claims and proceedings before the U.S. Department of Labor, in addition to the ever growing wage and hour dispute claims that are vastly on the rise around the country. This includes successfully representing clients as to alleged violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and similar state specific wage claim violations, such as the Colorado Wage Claim Act (CWCA).
Our attorneys have represented employers before all federal and state courts, commissions and administrative agencies, including jury trials, appeals, complex litigation, class action litigation and compliance actions. Our Firm works with employers of all types and sizes, ranging from your classic “mom and pop” establishment to Fortune 500 companies, to help avoid the costs involved with litigation.
Our ability to defend employers and companies of any size with an emphasis on the reduction of risk and claims liability, combined with our immediate efforts to seek resolution of issues prior to the client incurring expensive litigation costs is at the core of why you want Lee + Kinder on your side.
Finally, on the front end of employment-related issues, our attorneys assist employers by drafting basic company policies and procedural manuals, workplace anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies, coordination in internal investigations for harassment and discrimination claims, covenants not to compete, trade secret agreements and claims, non-disclosure agreements and employment agreements. In this way, we can assist your efforts in striving to take a proactive approach to tackling and solving issues before they escalate, saving you thousands of dollars.
