Lyons & Simmons, LLP Is Prepared to Assist You

Our employment lawyers in Texas are frequently called upon to obtain emergency relief on behalf of clients and the firm has enjoyed tremendous success obtaining temporary restraining orders, temporary injunctions and permanent injunctive relief when money damages will be inadequate to fully compensate our clients and when those we represent cannot afford anything other than an expeditious and swift result in their favor.

Retaliation in the Workplace

State and federal law prohibits employers with 15 or more employees from retaliating against employees who engage in a protected activity such as opposing a discriminatory practice or unlawful harassment in the workplace. Our firm aids employers and employees on minimizing risk or maximizing a recovery – depending on what side of the docket the firm and its attorneys find themselves.

Negotiating Employment Contracts

Our employment attorneys routinely draft, negotiate and provide practical advice to our clients in the formation and execution of employment agreements, employee manuals and handbooks, independent contractor agreements, and severance packages. A well-executed contract can protect either the employer or the employee from litigation related exposure.

Unlawful Discrimination & Harassment in the Workplace

The law in the area of sex, color, race, religion and national origin discrimination is always in a state of flux as the law continues to evolve in these areas at both the state and federal levels. Employers must know the law and have mechanisms in place to thwart anticipated discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Given the rapidly changing legal landscape in these types of disputes, courts and the EEOC are frequently imposing new obligations and regulations on both employers and employees regarding appropriate conduct in the workforce. Our employment lawyers have litigated disputes involving all facets of discrimination, including gender based harassment, before judges, juries and arbitrators all over the country.

Negligent Hiring, Supervision & Retention
