Attorney Tara M. Swartz of Swartz Law, LLC has handled claims arising out of the workplace for almost 15 years. She represents employees, startups and small business owners in all phases of litigation. Her practice includes a wide range of cases, such as all forms of discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), unpaid wages, non-competition and non-solicitation matters, other state and federal statutory actions, and contract and tort claims. She is well versed in representing federal employees through the EEO process. Attorney Swartz also drafts and negotiates employment contracts, such as compensation plans, restrictive covenant agreements, and severance packages. She places an emphasis on avoidance, early detection, and resolution (both before and during a matter is filed in court) and believes that dedicated, one-on-one servicing of her clients is of utmost importance.
In the business context, Attorney Swartz knows that startups and small businesses have many of the same employment contract and compliance concerns as large corporations but do not always have the internal resources to assign issues when they arise. She assists small businesses in determining what they need to focus on, how to achieve their goals, and importantly how to stay out of trouble.
