Employment Advice, Counsel & Investigations
HNRK guides clients facing a nearly impenetrable and ever-growing maze of competing and conflicting regulations to the best possible outcome. Clients rely on us to identify and evaluate appropriate strategies and scenarios to ensure they navigate difficult situations successfully. These may be for matters involving disability leave, overtime eligibility, social media use and policies pertaining to in-house email systems and Facebook, managing problematic employees, or providing guidance on when and how to take adverse employment action.
We also advise executives and entrepreneurs on matters ranging from organizing partnerships, often with restrictive covenants, to the preparation and review of employment agreements and separation agreements.
Clients facing allegations of employee or managerial misconduct, ranging from harassment to financial improprieties, rely on HNRK’s employment and white collar defense attorneys’ experience in workplace investigations. Our partners in this practice have decades of investigative experience regarding employee misconduct, theft of trade secrets, wage and hour, and discrimination matters. In regard to white collar defense, our attorneys have significant experience as senior federal prosecutors and private practitioners in conducting workplace investigations that range from alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act to mass tort negligence that may result in civil or criminal liability. HNRK works to uncover and contextualize relevant facts with applicable law, and to counsel management clients on available courses of action.
