Employment Litigation

The firm represents management and insurance carriers in the field of employment and labor law. We have represented clients in both state and federal courts throughout South Carolina and Georgia in matters involving employment discrimination under state law and Title VII, sexual harassment, age discrimination, wrongful termination, defamation, employment contracts, covenants not to compete, confidentiality agreements, ERISA, COBRA, and the FMLA. We have extensive experience litigation claims involving the Unfair Trade Practices Act, trade secrets and covenants not to compete.

In addition to handling litigation of employment-related claims, our attorneys prepare position statements in response to EEOC Charges of Discrimination and provide on-site employment law training for employers. We draft and review employee handbooks, negotiate executive compensation packages, draft covenants not to compete and prepare employee separation agreements.

Our attorneys are regular speakers at seminars and Continuing Legal Education programs addressing employment law issues. Attorneys Heyward Clarkson and Sean Scoopmire comprise our Employment Litigation team. We have been repeatedly recognized by the independent legal rating service of Martindale-Hubbell as preeminent in the field of employment law.
