Employment Law

Timoney Knox’s Employment Law Group is dedicated to assisting our clients, whether individual employees or large corporations, with all of their employment law issues.  We provide employers and employees with successful, practical, and cost-effective solutions to meet their unique needs.

Our practice encompasses all areas of employment law, including counseling management to ensure compliance with federal, state and local laws governing employer and employee relations in matters which include employment policies and practices, terminations, and disability leave. We also handle matters involving negotiation, preparation and enforcement of employment agreements, severance agreements and restrictive covenants.

We defend employers in lawsuits and administrative proceedings for claims of employment discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, civil rights violations, employment torts, denial of employment benefits and other employment-related issues.

Employees also retain our services as well, often for assistance and advice on issues such as workplace conflict and terminations, discrimination claims associated with national origin, religion, sex, age or disability, wage and hour disputes, harassment in the work place, workplace safety issues, class action litigation, pension and salary negotiations, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements.

No matter how big or small the matter, we are always accessible to our clients, placing their financial realities and long-term interests first and foremost.

The sending of an email to a Timoney Knox lawyer does not create, and the receipt of it does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. This website presents general information about Timoney Knox, LLP which is not intended to be legal advice, nor should you consider it as such. Please be aware that anything you send to anyone at the firm will not be confidential, secret, privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure unless we have formally agreed to represent you in writing and a conflicts check has been successfully completed. Unless we have created an attorney-client relationship in writing, please understand that no information provided in an email that you send to one of our lawyers will prevent Timoney Knox from representing a different client in the same matter. Also, by acknowledging the terms here, you consent to the firm's subsequent use of information that you provide us in the representation of another client. Consequently, please do not send confidential or sensitive information and/or documents to anyone at the Firm until you have been notified that a formal attorney-client relationship has been established.
