School Employment

Practice Overview

Drummond Woodsum attorneys represent school districts in both Maine and New Hampshire on all aspects of employment law. We advise schools on complex issues related to such federal laws as the Family Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Civil Rights Act of 1964, and their state counterparts.

We help our school clients avoid liability through sound advice, the analysis and development of effective school policies, and seminars for school boards and administrators. We routinely assist clients with difficult employee termination and discrimination issues, and when matters cannot otherwise be resolved we represent schools in mediation, arbitration, court litigation, and administrative hearings before state and local agencies.
