Employment and Anti-Discrimination law encompasses a wide array of issues, ranging from protecting employees’ interests from discrimination to protecting business-sensitive information and unfair employee competition.
Members of Chambers undertake a wide range of employment work for employers and employees, and advise on and represent clients in matters relating to restrictive covenants, confidential information and trade secrets, partnerships, discrimination, wrongful dismissal, and other disputes concerning contracts of employment. Members also regularly represent clients in seeking injunctive relief, including springboard injunctions.
More specifically, in light of COVID-19, DVC’s members have also advised on:

• employers’ obligations if an employee contracts COVID-19
• the applicability of force majeure provisions (with external suppliers or otherwise)
• any contingencies
