Haynsworth Sinkler Boyd’s Labor and Employment attorneys understand that labor and employment issues often require immediate response and counsel. Our knowledge and experience are available to our clients for both simple, real-time answers and those that require more extensive research and response. We pride ourselves on same day responses and provide all contact information for those employment law emergencies that arise. Attorneys are located throughout the state and include preventive maintenance counselors, experienced trial attorneys, and regulatory attorneys to assist in compliance with, and defending claims under, the complex and constantly-changing federal, state, and local laws regarding employer-employee relations.

Consistent with our general approach to assisting our clients with avoiding or resolving legal disputes, our Team’s first and foremost objective is that of risk prevention and mitigation. In this regard, our attorneys provide our clients with the tools they need to remain compliant with state and federal employment laws, and we regularly provide advice and training to our clients’ management personnel with the goal of preventing, rather than responding to, employee complaints.  Our attorneys are available to handle the entire scope of the employment relationship.

Our employment litigation attorneys have successfully represented employers in charges of discrimination before the EEOC/SHAC, claims or complaints brought to the ESC, DOL, or pertaining to OSHA, COBRA, HIPAA, and other charges brought before regulatory agencies. Our litigators have significant experience handling litigation involving ERISA, restrictive covenants, trade secrets, confidentiality agreements, severance agreements, Title VII claims, §1981 claims, wrongful termination, and other state law claims arising from the employer-employee relationship. The litigators are seasoned, well known, and highly regarded in federal and state courts throughout South Carolina as a result of their expansive practice of all types of litigation for over a century.
