Employment Litigation

At Foster Swift, we strive to prevent costly litigation. However, we also know sometimes litigation is necessary so we stand ready to defend you – and ensure you are properly represented.

Our Labor & Employment Law attorneys work with employers in discrimination, wrongful discharge and other employment disputes before state and federal courts and administrative agencies as well as in arbitration, mediation and other alternative dispute resolution systems. Our breadth of experience and skill in tackling the most complex labor relations issues are a true asset should litigation become a reality.

Our attorneys provide experience in employment litigation disputes under all aspects of employment and labor laws, including:

  • The Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act
  • Title VII
  • The Family Medical Leave Act
  • 42 USC 1983
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
  • The Michigan's Persons With Disabilities Civil Rights Act
  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act

We are also well-versed in representing employers in causes of action for breach of contract (including non-compete covenants), wrongful discharge, whistleblower and retaliation.

Our attorneys have represented litigants in state and federal courts as well as in administrative proceedings before various state and federal agencies and departments. This includes the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor, the Wage and Hour Division as well as the Unemployment Insurance Agency.
