Employment Law and Agreements

The Transaction and Litigation Groups at Carnahan, Evans, Cantwell and Brown, P.C. are positioned well to address legal issues that arise in this ever-evolving and complex area of the law. We work closely with human resource personnel and company management to promptly address disputes in the workplace including those involving allegations of discrimination, employee benefits, wage and hour, labor relations, hiring and firing, personnel policies and procedures, wage issues, exempt and non-exempt employee status, and independent contractor – employee classifications, along with the drafting of employment handbooks and manuals that capsulize good employment law practices to avoid liability exposure on employment related claims.

Our business clients benefit from our transaction and litigation experience in federal and state courts and before administrative agencies, and we provide critical consultation on hiring practices, executive compensation, and the preparation of severance agreements, non-compete, non-solicitation, confidentiality and trade secret agreements to protect the valuable and proprietary information of companies and small businesses.

We also assist employers with the defense of unemployment compensation claims and hearings before the Missouri Division of Employment Security, and are ready to investigate and defend employee discrimination claims under the Missouri Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
