Employment Law

Employment Law

Iowa workers at companies large and small are protected by a variety of federal  and state laws. These laws are intended to help employees, and to make workplaces safer and more fair. While some employment laws are straightforward and well-understood, the volume and complexity of much of the law means that employers and employees may not be fully aware of their responsibilities and rights. This can lead to problems for employers and employees alike. 

Few employers intend to violate employment laws and regulations. Unfortunately, good intentions aren’t enough to protect employers or employees. Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP supports both employers and employees in complying with the law and in making sure their rights are protected.

In addition to helping our clients pursue redress for employment rights that have been violated, we also work proactively to prevent breaches of employment law. By helping our clients understand the law as it applies to them and their businesses, we can forestall employment issues and allow our clients to focus on productivity, not problems.

Among the many aspects of employment law with which we assist clients are:

  • Employment contract negotiation, review, disputes, and litigation
  • Unemployment compensation
  •  Non-compete agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Wrongful termination
  • Employment discrimination based on gender, age, race, color, national origin, disability, pregnancy, orientation, and gender identity
  • Workplace harassment
  • Wrongful employer retaliation
  • Administrative disciplinary and termination proceedings
  • ERISA
  • COBRA

We believe that businesses work better when employers and employees know their rights and understand what is expected of them. Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP takes pride in helping businesses manage their employment law concerns and in helping employees receive fair treatment. 

Whether you are an employer who needs help resolving an employment law matter or putting best practices in place, or an employee seeking redress for a violation of rights, we are available to advise you.
