Labor and Employment


Kabat Chapman & Ozmer’s labor and employment group represents management exclusively and provides clients with a full range of labor and employment services. This includes successfully representing clients in all aspects of employment litigation and traditional labor matters. The Firm’s labor and employment group has developed particular expertise and a track record that is second to none in the area of class and collective action wage and hour litigation, having successfully handled approximately 50 wage and hour class and collective actions across the nation in the last few years.

Our labor and employment group’s record of success has resulted in many of our attorneys being recognized as leaders in the field, having been named “Superlawyers®” and “Rising Stars®” as well as named AV Preeminent® by Martindale Hubbell and “Top Rated Lawyers in Labor & Employment.” Further, before forming KCO, our labor and employment group’s achievements at our prior firm resulted in the firm’s selection as a “Go-To Law Firm for the Top 500 Companies in Labor & Employment Law.” The group’s success has also led to the Firm representing Time Warner Cable in labor and employment matters on a nationwide basis and Hyatt Corporation as Southeast employment counsel. Other clients the firm’s attorneys have successfully represented in labor and employment matters over the past few years include Comcast Corporation, Cox Communications, Allegheny Energy, Georgia Pacific, JPMorgan Chase, Cbeyond Communications, Birch Communications and Johnny Rockets, among others. Additionally, our labor and employment attorneys have successfully represented a national information technology company, a national telecommunications company and a national financial services company in numerous cases throughout the country involving actual or threatened misappropriation of trade secrets, employee raiding and enforcement of restrictive covenant and confidentiality agreements.
