Labor and Employment

Labor and Employment

Businesses both large and small call Texas home, and provide jobs to millions of our state’s residents. All employers must abide by strict federal and state laws. The labor and employment practice group at Mitby Pacholder Johnson PLLC can guide you through the complex disputes that arise during the employer-employee relationship. Both state and federal law govern how employers and employees must treat each other, providing protections for both sides. Our experienced Houston civil trial lawyers have represented employers and employees in state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels, as well as in mediations and arbitrations.

Labor and employment law is an extremely complex area of the law, as both federal and state laws are often involved at once, as well as industry specific regulations and internal administrative procedures. Our attorneys are experienced and have a history of success in managing employment law cases.
