Employment Law
 

CJ Lake's lawyers help clients assess risk and solve problems associated with today's dynamic and diverse workforce. The firm's lawyers combine experience as government trial and appellate litigators and Congressional committee counsel with many years of private practice to provide practical and seasoned advice and representation. The firm regularly counsels clients in designing and implementing compliance programs, developing employment manuals and "best employment practices and policies," and in defending businesses in individual and class action litigation and enforcement actions.

The compliance, litigation, and enforcement matters on which we regularly advise clients include the Fair Labor Standards Act, Immigration and Nationality Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act and Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act.

The firm's lawyers and professionals also bring their substantive expertise in these areas of law to the public policy arena in representing national coalitions of employers in the regulatory and legislative process, by participating in the rulemaking with various agencies and in seeking legislative solutions to clients' problems that could not been achieved through the courts or other traditional avenues. The firm's lawyers and professionals have an outstanding track record of success in obtaining legislative amendments to immigration and employment laws that meet clients' legislative goals.
