Employment Law

Many employers find it increasingly difficult to navigate the complex and esoteric laws governing the employer/employee relationship. Arnold & Placek provides representation, counseling and services to employers to assist them in responding to the ever-changing landscape of employment law. To ensure that an employer’s practices are compliant with the most recent laws and regulations, we consult with employers by drafting and/or reviewing employee handbooks, employment contracts, personnel policies and training manuals.

Our lawyers also have experience representing employers, both private and public entities, in all the different areas of employment litigation. We handle cases both at the administrative level (the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Texas Commission on Human Rights, Texas Workforce Commission) and the trial court level.
