Gerlach Employment Law’s practice consists of two principal elements: first, we represent employers in employment litigation before federal and state courts, governmental agencies and arbitration panels.

Second, we counsel our clients on how to avoid litigation with day-to-day and long-term advice. This proactive approach starts by helping employers design employee handbooks, drug test programs and compensation plans, as well as implementing and enforcing restrictive covenants and conducting compliance audits.
