Employment Litigation Defense

Standing up for employers.

Husch Blackwell defends employers against state and federal litigation that is an unfortunate reality in today’s increasingly regulated workplace. Our team has extensive experience handling individual actions alleging discrimination, harassment, whistleblower retaliation and violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act. Clients also trust us to secure the best possible outcomes in sophisticated and complex class and collective actions involving allegations of discrimination, wage and hour violations under state law and the Fair Labor Standards Act, and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) claims.

When state and federal administrative agencies come calling, our attorneys represent businesses in matters involving employment discrimination charges, unfair labor practice complaints, and wage and hour claims.
