Employment Law Attorneys

The mission of the employment law attorneys at Rathje & Woodward, LLC is to help employers maximize profitability by creating a positive work environment with satisfied workers. We work with you to create a tailor-made human resource program designed to increase productivity, encourage teamwork, and improve worker morale. With such a program in place, the risk of an unsatisfied employee is minimized.

We accomplish this through training, handbooks, improved communications with employees and annual audits. We also have the skill and knowledge to draft effective non-compete and sales representative agreements and handle unfair competition issues, including litigating breaches of restrictive covenants.

Representing Employers for Over 70 Years

At Rathje & Woodward, LLC, we believe employment matters are better handled in-house and that prevention is the most cost-effective strategy. Our retainer arrangement and free audits encourage this preventive strategy by allowing clients to openly communicate with us without having to worry about the cost of every phone call. This fee arrangement also allows management to anticipate and manage potential employment law issues and to budget costs.
