Employment Law

The attorneys at Dean, Ringers, Morgan & Lawton have consulted with and represented employers in all of the major areas of employment litigation, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Florida Civil Rights Act; the Family Medical Leave Act; the Fair Labor Standards Act; the public and private Whistleblowers Acts; OSHA investigations, and other contractual and tort claims. In augmentation of our governmental practices experience, we routinely defend employment claims brought pursuant to the Federal and State constitutions as well as civil rights claims brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §§ 1983 and 1985.

Our vast litigation experience assists us in consulting and assisting employers in drafting personnel policies and procedures as well as providing continuing education classes. When charges of unlawful employment practices are filed, we represent our client’s interests by advising their Human Resource departments on the scope of their investigations, draft position statements for the investigating agency’s consideration, and represent the employer during on-site inspections. When lawsuits are filed, we respect the confidence that our clients place in us to efficiently and competently defend such claims through mediation, motion practice and trial.
