Proactive and Pragmatic Legal Counsel for Kentucky Employers
Whether you run a small business or a Fortune 500 company, labor and employment issues can disrupt your daily operations and your bottom line. At Lockaby PLLC, we provide creative, compassionate, and business-minded counsel on all labor and employment issues to business of all sizes throughout Kentucky.
We can advise on all matters spanning the employment relationship cycle, from recruiting and hiring to layoffs, reductions in force, and termination — and everything in between, such as:
- Providing day-to-day HR advice and counsel on a wide range of issues, including employment background checks, disciplinary action, and state and federal administrative, statutory, and regulatory compliance;
- Performing and overseeing sexual harassment investigations and other internal investigations; and
- Drafting and evaluating employment contracts, noncompete agreements, and severance and separation agreements.
We also proactively defend employers and management against discrimination and retaliation claims; minimum wage, overtime, and other labor law claims; workers’ compensation retaliation claims; qui tam and whistleblower claims; and breach of contract claims relating to noncompete, trade secret, confidentiality, and nonsolicitation agreements.
A Balanced Perspective on Employment Law
Because we represent both employees and employers, we approach each matter with a balanced, nuanced understanding of the issues involved. At the outset of each matter, we provide a reasoned assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the case, an estimated budget, and a plan of action for achieving your organization’s goals as quickly and efficiently as possible, whether that is early resolution, a vigorous defense seeking dismissal by the court, or trial preparation.
