Christensen & Prezeau, PLLP

Christensen & Prezeau’s experienced attorneys regularly advise employers in ways to manage employee performance issues, prepare legally compliant personnel policies, appropriately document personnel matters, and minimize risk. We regularly counsel management clients on issues relating to wrongful discharge, discrimination and harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, FMLA, unemployment insurance, and other types of employment matters. Our proactive approach to working with clients helps to avoid litigation in the first instance. When that is not possible, our guidance helps employers be better prepared to defend employment-related claims. We provide employment litigation defense in state and federal court and before administrative agencies. We also review employment contracts and conduct investigations into allegations of hostile work environment and other workplace disputes.
