Labor & Employment Adaptive & Effective
The modern workplace is full of emerging challenges. Labor and employment regulatory schemes are in a constant state of flux and require adaptive responses. Companies must grapple with classifying employees within unprecedented business models, take steps to increase diversity and avoid discrimination, maintain stringent safety standards, and successfully counter class action and individual plaintiff litigation. Our team brings decades of experience and a collaborative, client-centered approach to counseling, compliance, and disputes.
On The Mark
We counsel clients on getting the best return on their investment in human capital while still protecting their interests from liability. Our attorneys provide guidance on establishing programs in health and safety for compliance with OSHA standards, affirmative action as related to OFCCP, and wage and hour issues. Kilpatrick Townsend’s team also supports clients in developing and maintaining effective policies to prevent workplace harassment and violence and in meeting FMLA requirements.
Making It Work
Mergers, acquisitions, and a rapidly-changing marketplace can necessitate reductions in force. We help employers navigate these upheavals and assist with voluntary and involuntary terminations in an even-handed fashion. We also provide counsel to employers facing union-organized drives and class action and other employment litigation.

Meet The Team View All
While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
DO NOT CONVEY TO US ANY INFORMATION YOU REGARD AS CONFIDENTIAL UNTIL A FORMAL CLIENT-ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED.
If you do convey information, you recognize that we may review and disclose the information, and you agree that even if you regard the information as highly confidential and even if it is transmitted in a good faith effort to retain us, such a review does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you.
