Labor and Employment Law in North Carolina
Charlotte attorney committed to enforcement of the law
Employment and labor laws govern all aspects of the relationships between employers and employees. While many have been designed to protect the rights of employees, these laws maintain a balance of fairness and equity between employers and employees that is vital to the health of all businesses. They require attorneys to be knowledgeable about such issues as human resource guidelines, wage and hour statutes, occupational safety and health, workers compensation, and anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws.
Knowledgeable and experienced North Carolina lawyer
Osborn Conflict Resolution is available to provide assistance in employment and labor law disputes by means of negotiation, collaborative law, and, where necessary, litigation and trial. Over my 20-plus years of legal experience, I have developed a thorough understanding of North Carolina and federal labor and employment laws — including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“the ADEA”), the Americans with Disabilities Act (“the ADA”), the Equal Pay Act (“EPA”), and the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) — and have assisted numerous clients to litigate or resolve a broad range of cases brought pursuant to these statutes. I have represent both employers and employees (not in the same matter, of course!) in labor and employment law disputes, including:
- Discrimination claims associated with national origin, religion, sex, age or disability
- Wage and hour disputes
- Sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, or racial harassment in the workplace
- Workplace safety issues
- Pension and salary negotiations
- Non-competition and non-disclosure agreements (also known as “covenants not to compete”)
I am committed to ensuring that every client receives personalized attention, including regular updates regarding case progress and options. While achieving a swift resolution through tough, diplomatic negotiation is my goal whenever possible (as it usually save a great amount of time and money for my clients) , I do not hesitate to take cases to court when a better outcome can be achieved in that way.
