Employment Agreements & Policies

Our employment law attorneys have extensive experience drafting employment, consulting, and severance contracts. We prepare employee handbooks, policies, dispute-resolution systems, and other documents that govern employer-employee relationships.

These policies have many uses, among which are to reduce the occurrence of – and liability for – workplace discrimination and harassment issues. Mooney Wieland attorneys can also assist employers in auditing their current employment practices to identify other areas of potential legal exposure.

Non-Compete & Non-Solicitation Agreements

Businesses provide their high-level and professional employees access to valuable company secrets, customer lists, and other sensitive information. We advise companies looking to protect these assets through strong but enforceable restrictive covenants.

Our employment law attorneys in Boise, Idaho and American Samoa also draft non-compete agreements that protect your company against employees who pursue competing ventures. Our attorneys also draft non-solicitation agreements to protect our clients’ customers, clients, and workforces from departing employees.

We aggressively work to protect our clients in disputes involving breaches of restrictive agreements, including covenants not to compete, and non-solicitation agreements barring solicitation of company employees or customers. Should litigation become necessary to protect your rights, we’re prepared to help you fight for them in court.

Workplace Discrimination

Employers are frequently targeted for claims of discrimination based on race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other protected characteristics.

Organizations of all sizes also frequently contend with sexual harassment claims, especially those against executive employees. We represent clients in American Samoa and Idaho in the full range of discrimination cases.

Regulatory Compliance

In addition to preventive measures to avoid liability, our employment-law team can also assist employers in auditing their current employment practices to identify other areas of potential legal exposure.

This includes compliance with various statutes, such as:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Americans With Disabilities Act
  • Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act
  • Discrimination laws, including the Civil Rights Act
