Employment Law Focus Areas


The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is very complex and continually changing to meet the demands of today’s worker. This area of the law is quite complex, dealing with life insurance, pension funds, disability benefits as well as health and welfare benefit plans for workers.



Employees may file a complaint against an employer with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or Minnesota Department of Human Rights under the Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA), which may lead to a lawsuit in state or federal court. We’re here to help you work through the issues leading up to the complaint from strategy to trial.


Wrongful Termination

We represent individuals and businesses with claims of wrongful termination based on a variety of protected classes such as age, race, gender, marital status, sex or religion. We can help guide you through the process whether you are on the management side or the employee side. We are better equipped to vet your case knowing how the other side may perceive the facts and evidence.


Unemployment Benefits

When employees are fired, they may decide to pursue unemployment benefits. Our attorneys will fight for you to either get you as an employee the benefits you deserve, or defend you as an employer against undue claims.
