At Fauver, Large, Archbald & Spray, LLP we represent employers on important and complex employment law issues. We believe that the quality of our advice makes a difference. We take a proactive approach that emphasizes preventative measures to minimize the risk of litigation. However, our attorneys also have extensive experience in representing employers in all phases of employment litigation before state and federal courts, in mediation, arbitration, and before administrative agencies.

FLAS is known for developing strong working relationships with the companies we serve. The better we know our business clients, the better we can determine the best legal strategies to help them avoid and resolve employment disputes.

As part of our employment practice, we assist clients in negotiating, drafting, interpreting and, if necessary, litigating disputes arising out of employment contracts. We regularly counsel our clients on discipline and termination matters. FLAS serves as counsel in all aspects of employment litigation, including:

  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Wrongful discharge and employment tort claims
  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Trade secret protection/enforcement
  • Defamation
  • Whistleblower charges
  • Employment contract disputes
  • “Best practices” employment policies
  • Labor/collective bargaining issues

FLAS is dedicated to helping employers protect themselves from unfair competition from within. In addition to working with clients to develop comprehensive trade secret protection programs, we assist with drafting enforceable non-disclosure agreements, assignment of invention agreements, and non-competition agreements intended to protect intellectual property and other proprietary information. When preventive measures fail, our firm aggressively litigates claims including theft of trade secrets, breach of non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements, and unfair trade practices.

Our firm advises clients on the wisdom and effects of mergers and acquisitions, sales or restructurings, the planning and implementation of reductions in work force, and preparing voluntary severance plans.
