Discrimination and Other Complex Employment Litigation

Weil’s Employment Practice Group is recognized for its proficiency in handling discrimination litigation matters.
We has defended clients across virtually all industries in class actions and other complex cases involving claims based on race, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, retaliation, and other protected classifications. Weil also defends employers before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and state and local civil rights agencies on a variety of issues such as discrimination, retaliation, harassment and other civil rights claims. Our lawyers have developed novel and efficient approaches to discrimination litigation defense, including:
  • strategic use of discovery and dispositive motions
  • persuasive use of statistical data
  • cost-efficient strategies for producing electronically stored information
  • effective deployment of consulting and testifying experts.

Weil also represents clients with respect to compliance with a variety of workplace statutes, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA), the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN), and state and local employment statutes, among others.
