Labor & Employment

The Hawn Law Firm understands that labor and employment law issues are of paramount importance in today’s business climate and economy.  Employers who do not effectively implement current labor practices potentially face a series of employment related issues.      

As an extension of its strong commitment to its business clients, The Hawn Law Firm advises small and mid-size business owners on all areas of D.C. employment law affecting the employer/employee relationship, including; harassment and discrimination, Equal Opportunity, Americans With Disabilities, family and medical leave, computer and email issues, compliance with wage and hour laws, dress codes, drug testing, at-will employment, COBRA, vacation and sick leave.  We work to prevent problems before they develop and effectively resolve the problems that do occasionally occur.
