Employment Law

Rothberg's employment attorneys understand the intense pressures today’s employers face as they pursue their business goals while also trying to recruit and retain satisfied, productive employees.

Supporting Your Business Goals

All employers face employment-related matters that must be addressed, no matter the size of the business. From hiring processes to vacation policies, to workers' compensation through executive pay, as well as the myriad federal and state regulations facing business owners, managing employment requirements can be a daunting task.

Our attorneys are well-versed in the laws concerning compensation, including the Fair Labor Standards Act governing minimum wage and overtime eligibility, and the Indiana Wage Claim and Wage Payment Acts. Further, we assist clients in negotiating employment contracts for highly compensated executives and protecting business assets and opportunities with noncompete agreements and restrictive covenants.

Additionally, many employers have questions about their obligations concerning vacation and paid time off, and whether employees are eligible for sick, illness, or injury leave under statutes like the Family Medical Leave Act or workers' compensation. We often advise employers and employees through the web of issues created by workplace injuries, leave statutes, and disability issues.

Sometimes litigation cannot be avoided, even with the best planning and preparation. When a business’ policy decisions are on the line, labor and employment litigation can have high stakes. In those instances, our litigation team works closely with clients to investigate the underlying issues of any claim to determine how to present that evidence to the appropriate agency, or at trial, in the best possible way.
