Employment Law

Legal challenges confronting today’s businesses can be daunting and, at times, overwhelming. From non-compete agreements to overtime requirements to wrongful discharge claims, the issues confronting employers often require legal knowledge and legal solutions. FMGR provides its clients with legal advice that prevents and resolves problems related to employment matters.

FMGR’s experience in a variety of employment matters enables us to counsel employers about the many complex issues facing businesses today, such as:

  • Retaliatory Discharge
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Wage and Hour Laws
  • Employee Handbooks
  • Discrimination
  • Drug Testing
  • Non-compete Agreements
  • Employment Contracts
  • Unemployment Compensation
  • Collective Bargaining Agreements

While the prevention of legal problems in these areas is a primary focus, FMGR’s attorneys are prepared to litigate matters that cannot be resolved. Our attorneys have represented clients in proceedings before the Illinois Department of Employment Security, the Illinois Human Rights Commission, the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, state and federal trial courts, and state and federal courts of appeal.

Whether you face a lawsuit filed by a former employee or simply desire assistance in formulating effective employee policies and procedures, FMGR is prepared to offer the counsel needed to navigate the sometimes confusing waters of employment law.
