Our attorneys have broad experience in advising school districts on legal issues related to personnel actions.  When the needs of the district and the actions of employees come into conflict, our clients rely on the guidance of our experienced lawyers to protect their interests through every phase of the employment process.   We routinely assist school districts and charter schools:

  • Retain your best employees and terminate staff when required
  • Determine what speech is protected, who may have access to the school facilities, what may be accessed via the Internet in your school and other Constitutional issues
  • Defend against claims of civil rights violations based on race, sex, age, disability and religion
  • Avoid claims under the Whistleblower Act
  • Protect the school district through reduction in force or staff reassignments
  • Resolve problems regarding breach of contract, grievances, unemployment compensation, workers' compensation or failure to hire allegations
  • Understand the Fair Labor Standards Act and what it means to you
  • Handle certification suspension and revocation matters
  • Use the best procedures for pre-employment screening and post-employment references
  • Examine claims of sexual harassment
