Employment Law Lawyers

Grimes Teich Anderson LLP is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees. We represent employees in cases involving discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination. We stand up to employers who violate wage and hour laws, the Family and Medical Leave Act, whistleblower laws, and various other state and federal employment laws. We help individuals with their employment contracts and disputes, including severance, non-compete, confidentiality agreements, and breach of contract claims. We also represent employees in appeals of denied claims for unemployment benefits.

Employment Law Services

We represent employees experiencing problems in all aspects of the employment relationship. We do not defend employers who fail to follow state and federal employment laws. Our employment law practice includes many aspects of employment law and employment litigation, some of which are identified below.

Employment Litigation

Suffering the loss of a job can be an emotionally wrenching experience. The questions pound through your head: Can my employer just fire me? Did my employer do anything illegal? Can I find another job in this economy? You have lost wages, benefits, emotional distress, and other related costs. How do you begin to address these concerns?

Let an experienced employment lawyer at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP assess the facts and circumstances of your situation. We can provide capable representation in any of the following areas:

  • Employment Discrimination based on race, sex, pregnancy, religion, national origin, age, or disability
  • Sexual Harassment involving sexual advances or demands, physical touching, and other improper sexual behavior in the workplace
  • Wrongful Termination in Violation of Public Policy such as discharging a whistleblower or an employee who refuses to perform illegal acts
  • Retaliation Claims such as terminating employees who oppose discrimination or sexual harassment, initiate a workers' compensation claim, file a complaint about their wages, or report violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
  • Wage and Hour Issues including failure to pay minimum wage and overtime, misclassifying employees as exempt (salaried) to avoid paying overtime, not paying for hours worked, and failure to pay bonuses and commissions
  • Family and Medical Leave Act Violations such as denial of FMLA leave, failure to reinstate an employee following FMLA leave, and termination before or during FMLA leave
  • Breach of Contract Claims arising out of employment contracts
  • Employment Contract Disputes including litigation of Non-Compete Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements
  • Unemployment Appeals arising out of denied claims for benefits

Employment Consultation for New and Departing Employees

Leaving your job for a new employment opportunity can raise many legal issues. You should consider: What are the terms of my employment agreement? Did I sign a valid non-compete agreement? Will I have to reimburse my employer for any benefits? How can I negotiate favorable terms in my new employment contract? How do you deal with these issues?

Let an experienced employment lawyer at Grimes Teich Anderson LLP review or draft your employment contract and provide counseling regarding your situation.

In addition to employment litigation, we also provide consultation to executives, management, physicians, dentists, and other professionals and employees in the following areas:

  • Review of Employment Contracts including definition of terms and provisions, explanation of enforceability, and negotiation of additions/deletions
  • Negotiation of Severance Compensation Packages
  • Review of Non-Compete Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements including explanation of enforceability, negotiation of terms, and identification of options and strategies
  • Analysis of rights such as compensation and potential employment law claims

Grimes Teich Anderson, LLP has law offices located in Asheville, Rutherfordton, Waynesville and Spruce Pine, North Carolina and Greenville, South Carolina. If you want Grimes Teich Anderson LLP to determine whether we can help you with an employment law claim or provide legal assistance, we invite you to complete an Employment Case Information form and submit the completed form to our Asheville, North Carolina office.

You can download the Employment Case Information form or contact us at 1.800-533-6845 to receive a copy of the form through mail or e-mail. Please fill out the form as completely as possible and return your completed form immediately because there may be important deadlines in your case. All information you provide is confidential.

After we review your case, if we believe that we may be able to help you, an experienced employment law attorney will meet with you for an initial consultation. There may be a charge for the initial consultation, depending upon the type of case and your ability to pay. The attorney will decide whether we can represent you after the initial consultation.

We do not represent anyone until there is a contract. Some employment law cases are handled on a contingent fee basis and others are handled on an hourly basis, where the client is billed for the hours spent on the case. Based on our experience, we will advise you of the most appropriate fee arrangement.

In addition to employment litigation, we also provide consultation to executives, management, physicians, dentists, and other professionals and employees in the following areas:
