Employment Law

An employee lawsuit claiming illegal discrimination, sexual harassment or a wrongful termination can be a serious distraction and financial drain to a business. The employment law attorneys of Diserio Martin O'Connor & Castiglioni LLP offer a proven record of success in mitigating these effects through aggressive defense of employment claims, including the following:

  • Employment discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin and gender.
  • Sexual harassment claims and investigations.
  • Age discrimination.
  • Disability discrimination and failure to accommodate under the Americans With Disabilities Act.
  • Termination or retaliation claims under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
  • Wrongful termination, including qui tam and whistle blower claims.
  • Employment contracts.
  • Wage and hour claims.
  • Violation of restrictive covenants including non-compete, non-solicitation and confidential information agreements.

We have represented businesses ranging in size from small independent companies to major corporations in Connecticut and New York. Our organization and staffing enables us to respond quickly and efficiently to the needs of our clients in order to secure maximum damage control. Our veteran employment trial lawyers possess skills and experience comparable to that of much larger law firms, but often at far less cost.

While Diserio Martin O'Connor & Castiglioni LLP has a proven track record at trial, we understand that counseling our clients to adopt preventive employment strategies is more cost effective for them in the long run. Our employment law attorneys provide counseling and guidance on the development of company-wide policies and procedures to prevent lawsuits where possible and to best position the client to defend itself successfully in the event that litigation cannot be avoided. We will conduct a thorough review of human resources policies and analyze past claims to target critical areas for improvement. We will also review insurance coverages and risk management best practices to provide more comprehensive protection from liability.
