Attorneys for EEOC, DOL, OSHA Representation Before Federal and State Agencies
Baird Quinn LLC’s employment attorneys regularly represent clients before the Federal, state, and municipal agencies responsible for enforcing the many employment and labor laws governing businesses in Colorado. By virtue of our significant experience and detailed knowledge of these laws and the investigative processes, we are able to provide superior representation to clients in a cost-effective manner.
Employment & Labor Laws Enforced in Colorado
In Colorado, many employment and labor laws govern the relationship between employers and employees, promoting fair treatment, workplace safety, enforceable wage standards, and adherence to certain standards. Some of the key employment and labor laws enforced in Colorado include EEOC, DOL, OSHA, CCRD, OFCCP, and DADO.
United States Department of Labor Laws
Baird Quinn LLC attorneys assist clients with compliance, mediation, and advocacy on matters involving the many wage and hour laws and regulations for which the United States Department of Labor (“DOL”) is responsible, such as wage, hour, and overtime matters under the Fair Labor Standards Act, leave issues under the Family and Medical Leave Act, and whistle-blower issues under Sarbanes Oxley. Our practice encompasses compliance audits and handling charges filed with the DOL of the federal government. We also assist clients with claims before the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, which enforces Colorado state employment laws, such as the Colorado Wage Act.
U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Colorado Civil Rights Division & Denver Anti-Discrimination Office
We also have significant experience representing clients before the Denver field office of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Colorado Civil Rights Division (“CCRD”), and Denver Anti-Discrimination Office (“DADO”).
These agencies enforce employment discrimination laws prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, age, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, as well as individuals with other protected characteristics. We have represented hundreds of individuals and businesses on discrimination claims and charges involving all anti-discrimination laws enforced by the EEOC, CCRD, and DADO. Our experience is derived not only from our representation of clients on hundreds of workplace discrimination charges in litigation and conciliation but also from former employment in the EEOC’s legal department, where an intimate and detailed knowledge of the EEOC office’s practices and data collection methods, such as EEO-1 surveys, contributes to our advocacy and representation.
United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Baird Quinn’s attorneys also regularly represent clients in responding to charges filed with the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”). Among other things, OSHA enforces federal laws prohibiting retaliation against employees who complain about unsafe work practices. We have extensive experience representing clients through OSHA’s regulatory and enforcement processes.
United States Office of Federal Contract Compliance
For clients subject to oversight and audit by the United States Office of Federal Contract Compliance (“OFCCP”) based in Washington, DC, we offer significant experience in resolving matters that result in no monetary liability. We also represent clients with respect to discrimination complaints filed with the OFCCP.
Over the past several decades, our employment attorneys have developed positive working relationships with management and investigators at these agencies and, as a result, earned their respect for honest, aggressive, and effective advocacy of our client’s interests. We can provide effective and affordable representation to clients due to our detailed knowledge of the employment statutes and regulations enforced by these agencies, and our extensive experience from handling similar matters. When you ask, “What is the next step?” we will know the answer.
We offer flexible fee structures, including in some situations, a flat-fee arrangement for representation in handling charges filed with these agencies.
