Ramsden, Marfice, Ealy & Harris, LLP

Employment Law

Our employment law attorneys assist employers with the defense of wrongful discharge/termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environment, and wage dispute matters. We also review company policies and employee handbooks, advise on applicant selection procedures, and advise on compliance with employment laws such as the ADA, Title VII, and the ADEA.


In today's environment, the potential to become involved in costly litigation over employment matters is increasing. The attorneys at RMEH work with employers to develop employment policies and procedures that help prevent problems before they occur. These services include:

  • Reviewing, drafting, and updating employee handbooks, employment applications, and employment agreements

  • Reviewing and developing policies addressing workplace issues such as sexual harassment, employment discrimination, drug testing, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

  • Advising employers on how to develop and enhance applicant selection procedures

  • Negotiation of labor and management agreements

  • Advising employers on employee terminations

We have represented employers before the Human Rights Commission, the EEOC, OSHA and have defended employers in litigation before state, federal, and appellate courts. Employment litigation can cover a wide variety of claims, including:

  • Wrongful discharge/termination

  • Discrimination (age, race, sex, disability, national origin)

  • Sexual harassment

  • Hostile work environment

  • Wage disputes

  • Unsafe work environment

  • “Whistleblower” claims

We strive to help employers avoid litigation, minimize their risk, and maintain a trouble-free work place. However, when litigation does arise, we have the experience necessary to defend these claims in court.
