Halloran & Sage represents employers in the defense of all employment claims, whether based on statutes, contracts or the common law. Our employment litigation practice is distinguished not only by our considerable courtroom experience, but also by our firm's depth of knowledge in related areas of labor and employment law and commercial litigation. By applying our broad understanding of business and the workplace, we have honed sophisticated trial skills that keep us at the forefront of employment litigation.
We defend employers against claims of discrimination, including those arising under federal and state laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act and the Equal Pay Act. We are equally adept at defending employers against common law claims, including lawsuits for breach of contract, wrongful discharge, defamation, invasion of privacy and emotional distress. Our practice includes representation of employers and insurers in workers' compensation disputes.
Employment litigation can be disruptive and costly to a business. The cases we defend range in scope from single claimants to class actions. In every one, our approach is to resolve the matter as quickly and efficiently as possible without compromising our client's best interests. We take a practical approach to employment litigation – an approach that is strengthened by our substantial experience in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. We have also established a record of success in resolving employment disputes through alternative dispute resolution procedures such as mediation and arbitration.
