Employment Law

Winnick Ruben Hoffnung Peabody & Mendel, LLC provides representation in regard to the widest range of employment problems, including discrimination; sexual harassment; employee discipline and discharge; FMLA and leaves of absence; reasonable accommodation under the ADA and CFEPA; overtime and wage laws and regulations; classification of exempt employees and independent contractors; noncompete and other employment agreements; employee handbooks and workplace policies; DOL investigations and proceedings; union grievances and arbitrations. The firm takes an aggressive but thoughtful approach to these issues, helping management and Human Resources departments recognize that every situation is unique, so that they can apply their best judgment rather than simply following automatic rules.

Our services include not only representation in matters pending before the Connecticut Commission and Human Rights, the federal and Connecticut Departments of Labor, and other agencies, as well as state and federal courts. Besides offering daily advice to clients on employment matters, the firm also will provide the full range of employment-law services, from drafting policies and handbooks, conducting internal investigations (of sexual harassment or other misconduct), and providing management training.
