Employment Disputes & Non-Competition Agreements

Meissner Tierney’s attorneys routinely represent both employers and employees before state and federal administrative agencies and courts on claims of employment discrimination.  These cases have involved claims under such laws as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and comparable claims under the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act.

We have also represented employers in relation to claims under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and analogous state statutes or local ordinances.

Our attorneys also routinely represent both businesses and individuals—from various professions and industries—in relation to disputes in which a non-competition agreement is at issue.  Wisconsin has some very unique statutory and common law in relation to non-compete agreements, and our attorneys are intimately familiar with, and have successfully addresses on behalf of our clients, these often-nuanced issues.
