Getting your business off the ground

  • For-profit Corporation
  • Non-profit Corporation
  • Sole Proprietorship

  • Limited Liability Company
  • Professional Limited Liability Company
  • General Partnership

Following business formation, our employment law attorneys complete or oversee preparation of contracts and documents including employee handbooks, financial policies, insurance and benefits offerings, privacy policies, offer letters, and separation agreements.

We are also prepared to advise upper-level management and executives on proper behaviors and legal guidelines within which they may operate in order to minimize the possibility of lawsuits in the future. We advise employers on the following regulations:

  • Fair Labor & Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act claims (FMLA)
  • Employee Retirement Income Securities Act (ERISA)
  • Occupational Health & Safety Act (OSHA)
  • Texas Minimum Wage Act

Employer Litigation

It’s true that a business’s biggest expense is personnel, and that never rings truer than being sued by an employee. Monique Diaz Law Firm, PLLC helps businesses combat litigious claims by employees, such as:

  • Discrimination claims (age, race, creed, gender)
  • Disability claims
  • Wage and hour laws
  • Unemployment compensation representation and appeals
  • Harassment defense
  • Workplace privacy
  • OSHA defense claims
  • Wrongful termination defense
  • Retaliation

We gather evidence, review claims and pore over company policy to build a strong defense and take apart the litigant’s case. Our attorneys explore every avenue of dispute resolution to ensure the case is wrapped up quickly, efficiently and in our clients’ best interests, but if an agreement cannot be reached we do not hesitate to fight these battles in court.

Commercial Employers & Public Sector Employers

Different employers have different regulations to which they must adhere. Maldonado Diaz’s experience within government law and civil litigation allows us to handle employment law claims in the public and private sectors, including labor union matters:

  • Labor law
  • Collective bargaining
  • Union disputes
  • Contractor disputes

Governmental agencies hire contractors to execute their initiatives, and those contracts must be scrutinized and strongly enforced. Our lawyers handle the creation and execution of these contract terms on behalf of the agencies who employ contractors, ensuring that all legal requirements are met and that contractors are held to the terms of their employment agreements.
