As a member of the Labor and Employment group, Sami Asaad assists employers facing the myriad challenges presented in today’s rapidly evolving workplace. In addition to traditional labor and employment issues, such as union-avoidance, equal employment opportunity, and wage and hour compliance, Mr. Asaad counsels employers on and drafts creative human resources policies addressing a wide range of modern issues, including workplace privacy and social media, employee computer abuse, and employee whistleblowers.

Such claims include allegations of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, wage and hour violations, employee misclassification, unfair labor practices, breach of contract, and federal and state statutory violations.
Additionally, to help protect employers’ investment in customer relationships, trade secrets, confidential information, and other good will, Mr. Asaad drafts and litigates restrictive covenants agreements including covenants not-to-compete, non-solicitation agreements, and non-disclosure agreements.
