Employment Law

 

Bergen & Parkinson’s employment law group represents employers and employees on the full range of legal issues that arise in connection with the workplace.  We have extensive experience before the Maine Human Rights Commission, as well as in court and with various agencies including the Department of Labor and Maine Unemployment Commission.  Our practice includes representing both private and public employers.

We assist clients at all stages of the employer/employee relationship, including preparing employment policies and employee handbooks, and assisting with hiring issues and matters relating to severance and termination.

Our expertise includes wage and hour law, employment contracts, including non-compete provisions, the Fair Labor Standards Act and other federal and state employment-related statutes such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and family and medical leave acts.

We have successfully represented employees in employee rights cases, including wrongful termination stemming from sexual harassment and age discrimination.  Additionally, we provide expertise on issues relating to start-ups, growing companies and large organizations regarding employee benefits, compliance issues and other matters associated with human resources.

In addition to our legal expertise, the employment law group at Bergen & Parkinson recognizes the fundamental challenges in dealing with the emotional and sometimes personal factors that arise in the business context.  We use common sense, compassion and a goal oriented strategy designed to consider the long term impacts of employment issues on the organization.

For assistance with employment issues, contact Susan Driscoll or Leah Rachin.
