Heather F. Vickles
Sherman & Howard's employment litigation attorneys represent employers in federal and state courts in both state and federal employment-based lawsuits. We defend employers in federal litigation under the employment discrimination laws as well as the Fair Labor Standards Act, Family Medical Leave Act, and other federal causes of action related to the employer-employee relationship. In state courts, we represent employers in wrongful discharge actions and employment torts based on state law. Our employment litigators also have experience appearing in state and federal courts to seek or defend injunctions on behalf of our employer clients to prevent the compromise of trade secrets or unfair competition contrary to covenants not to compete. We provide representation for government contractors in special fora-for example, in matters brought by the Department of Labor under the federal prevailing wage statutes including the Davis-Bacon and Service Contract Acts, as well as in actions initiated by the OFCCP relating to compliance requirements of government contractors. While we aim for early dismissal or summary judgment, our litigators go the distance with you, providing knowledgeable, experienced representation in harmony with our preventive law advice.
