Employment Law - Employers

Don't Let Employment Law Become Your Biggest Headache

Business owners and operators know that nothing can cause more of a distraction than an employee filing a grievance. Current federal and state employment regulations are so complex that it is nearly impossible for an employer to know when they are violating a wage and hour regulation, or failing to accommodate. If you manage a business, make sure you get experienced legal advice and representation before you make decisions about your employees.

Since 1980, Cable, Langenbach, Kinerk & Bauer has been one of Seattle's leading employer law firms, serving the needs of businesses and employers throughout western Washington. Our firm represents employers in a variety of areas related to employment law, including:

  • Severance negotiations
  • Workplace investigations
  • Defense against wrongful termination
  • Sexual harassment defense
  • Defense of ADA violations
  • Litigation to enforce non-compete agreements

If you are involved in a dispute with a current or former employee, we can help you find a common-sense solution without the need for an expensive court battle. Our attorneys are skilled in all areas of alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation.

In addition to dispute resolution and litigation on behalf of employers, we also provide transactional services, including:

  • Non-competition covenants, non-compete agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Employment agreements, executive contracts and compensation
  • Severance negotiations
  • Preparation of employment manuals
  • Risk management legal counsel

Washington Wage Act and the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

The Washington Wage Act (WA) does not always track with federal wage and hour laws. Trying to keep up with changes in state law and new interpretations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a constant battle. Learn about your rights and responsibilities as an employer before you have to start answering questions from the Department of Labor. We can help you stay on track with all your employment law needs.
