Strategic legal counsel for Texas employers

In the midst of high-stakes employment law disputes, employers need legal counsel with an understanding of the strategies used by both sides -- employers and employees.

Having an attorney with experience on both sides of the issues helps to ensure that you -- as a business owner -- are not caught by surprise and that your rights and interests are safeguarded every step of the way to a fair resolution.

Employer Representation

The attorneys of Fiddler & Associates, P.C., advise and represent employers and executive-level employees in Houston and the surrounding areas. We know the law, and we know how to anticipate the other side's next move.

Our lawyers handle a wide variety of issues for employers, including complex matters such as noncompete disputes, wage and hour disputes, and whistleblower and retaliation claims.

Noncompete Agreements

You ask that your employees sign noncompete agreements for good reason -- to protect your company's confidential information, trade secrets, and goodwill If an employee has breached a noncompete agreement or accused your company of violating one, your attorney should have experience not only in drafting noncompetes, but also in enforcing them.

To learn more, please see our overview of noncompete litigation.

Wage and Hour Law

This area of law can be exceedingly complex, and more and more businesses are seeking the help of employment law attorneys to ensure legal compliance and to defend against allegations of wage and hour violations. We represent employers in all of the following wage-related matters:

  • Compensation disputes
  • Unpaid commissions
  • Overtime claims
  • Claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Misclassification of employees
  • Collective actions (class actions)

Whistleblowers

These days employees have a lot of incentive to make whistleblower claims, even if they don't ultimately stand up to scrutiny. While many whisteblower actions are legitimate, others don't accurately reflect the facts, and employers should have knowledgeable legal counsel with regard to all of the following:

  • False Claims Act
  • Dodd-Frank Act
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • Sexual harassment claims
  • Workplace discrimination claims

If you have questions or concerns about any of these matters, we encourage you to see our employment law overview. Our founding attorney, G. Scott Fiddler, is one of about 25 lawyers in the entire state of Texas who is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization not only in Labor and Employment Law, but also in Civil Trial Law.
