Employment disputes are always difficult for all concerned. At the same time, the growth of employment related laws and regulations have created new rights and imposed new duties that make even the most basic of employment relationships confusing and complex. The experienced team of employment lawyers at Libby O’Brien Kingsley & Champion, LLC understands these fundamental points and will be there to help guide you through the entire process. We take pride in being responsive, solution oriented, practical and as cost efficient as possible. Our extensive litigation background helps us shape strategies to avoid unnecessary employment litigation and to be successful when it must be undertaken.
We represent clients and provide advice on all types of employment issues including discrimination matters, retaliation and whistleblower complaints, wage and hour claims, noncompetition disputes, military leave issues, family medical leave issues, separation packages, safety and health violations, and wrongful termination claims. In the increasingly complex legal world, we also have significant experience in employment law class actions.
We regularly handle employment matters at the state and federal levels before administrative agencies and courts. We have handled matters before the State Superior Courts and the United States District Courts in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, the Maine Human Rights Commission, and the Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine Departments of Labor. At the federal level, we also have handled claims before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
