We recognize that it is important for our business clients to have a stable and loyal workforce. Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek’s employment law attorneys work to ensure that clients deal wisely and reasonably with their human resources challenges. We provide strategic legal advice and services to help employers minimize the risk of litigation through effective workplace strategies.

SCMV focuses on addressing litigation risk in clients’ formation and on-going management of employee relationships and successfully resolves actual or threatened litigation through strategic planning and negotiation.  However, when litigation cannot be avoided, we bring a wealth of experience to forcefully pursue or defend our clients’ claims in trial.

We have successfully represented clients before administrative agencies and in defending wrongful discharge and sexual harassment charges. We collaborate, as needed, with business attorneys on matters such as contracts and compensation and counsel employers on individual terminations, reductions-in-force and the other challenges that face employers today.
