Employment Law

Morton & Gettys’ employment lawyers offer an array of services to address employer and employee relationships, ranging from day-to-day advice to perpetual management of complex employment issues. 

Our team includes a South Carolina Supreme Court specialist in labor and employment law with decades of experience working with businesses in South Carolina and North Carolina. Our attorneys are skilled at helping businesses work through problems and also advising them on policies and procedures that can head off trouble.

We counsel our clients on how to protect their confidential business information, to provide for effective contractual arrangements, and to ensure compliance with the mass of regulations and laws affecting employers. These include:

  • Title VII
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act
  • The Fair Labor Standards Act
  • The Affordable Care Act
  • Employee benefits under ERISA and South Carolina Health Continuation Benefits Laws

We partner with our clients to prepare and review their contracts, personnel policies, and employment procedures, with a strong focus toward preventative measures. 

Should the need arise, we also are ready to defend employers in court. Morton & Gettys employment lawyers have litigated numerous complicated cases from trial to appeal, including issues such as employment discrimination and non-compete agreements.
