The labor and employment litigation team at Tuesley Hall Konopa handles lawsuits arising from employment disputes such as wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, and breach of contract. Our primary focus is on the rights of employers, although we do occasionally represent business managers, executives, and professionals. Whether through mediation, arbitration, or litigation, we help our clients find a fair resolution for their dispute.

We conduct investigations, prepare formal position statements, and, when appropriate, participate in mediation and conciliation processes or courtroom litigation. Our goal is to help clients solve their employment disputes in innovative, cost-effective ways that allow them to move forward. Through pretrial dispositive motions and mediation, our labor and employment attorneys have been successful in obtaining dismissal of the vast majority of cases without the necessity of a trial. But, when there is no other course, we have the experience and proven ability to take the case through trial and appeal, in both state and federal courts.
