Employment Litigation


Reeder Plachta Murphy offers clients the services of attorneys with over 35 years of litigation experience, including employment litigation. Because we serve as attorneys and advisers for many West Michigan businesses, we also have a wealth of knowledge and experience in representing our clients’ interests when employment disputes arise.

Despite a business owner’s best efforts, even good and diligent employers may find themselves involved in employment litigation from time to time. Reeder Plachta Murphy strives to help our clients be proactive by establishing employment policies and procedures that help minimize the risk of employment disputes. However, when disputes arise, we are here to help you resolve them with as little cost and disruption as possible to your business.

Strong Representation in Michigan and Federal Employment Law Matters

Reeder Plachta Murphy P.C. represents employers and employees in a variety of Michigan and federal employment law matters, including:

  • Breach of Employment Agreement
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Breach or Enforcement of Covenants Not to Compete
  • Breach or Enforcement of Confidentiality Agreements
  • Employment Contract Claims
  • Discrimination Claims based on Age, Race, Gender, or Disability
  • Harassment Claims
  • Workplace Safety
  • Wage and Hour Issues

When litigation is unavoidable, we take the same approach to your case as we do in all matters: we study each case individually, applying our knowledge of Michigan and federal employment law to the facts of your case. If you are the plaintiff, we explore your options with you, including whether we believe litigation, or perhaps mediation or arbitration, is most likely to achieve your desired outcome. If you are the defendant, we explain the strengths and weaknesses of the plaintiff’s case, and work with you to develop the most appropriate and practical defense strategy to accomplish a successful result for you.
