Employees are a critical part of your business. Helping manage your business through complex employment matters is an essential part of our relationship with our clients. At Cowden Humphrey, we believe that the best defense begins with practical consultation before challenges arise.

We encourage our clients to call us first to assure that employment situations and problems are handled according to law, but in a way that suits the employer’s management style and culture. While employment issues invoke legal issues, they are ultimately business issues, and we focus on providing the advice you need to work through those business issues.

Cowden Humphrey offers a wide range of employment law services. From employment agreements to employment litigation, we assist employers with navigating the complex state and federal laws governing a company’s employment relationships. Large or small, public or private, union or union free, all employers must be aware of the employment laws that govern them. We are experts at assisting businesses in training and compliance.

More important, we bring our practical, results-oriented philosophy to consulting on labor and employment matters to ensure the company receives the most value for its invested time and resources. This consultative approach allows you to focus on building your team and culture within the law while bringing value to your organization. Our labor and employment law-related services include:


  • Employment Agreements, Severance Agreements and Non-Compete Agreements
  • ADA Compliance and Consultation
  • Defense of Discrimination and Administrative Agency Charges
  • FMLA and Wage & Hour Compliance and Consultation
  • Sexual Harassment and Other Employer Investigations
