An Overview

When a talented employee leaves his/her place of employment and attempts to compete with his/her former employer, the former employer often tries to prevent the ex-employee from competing, taking old clients or soliciting/competing based on the use of alleged "trade secrets." If a worker is harassed by her co-worker or supervisor/employer this can often lead to claims of sexual harassment, discrimination, or wrongful termination. If an employee fails to get required meal or rest breaks, this too can lead to litigation. These are just some examples and types of cases that an employer or employee needs the assistance and advise of an experienced attorney.
