Summary

Ben Steffans’s practice focuses on a diverse array of litigation, with a specialization in representing both employers and employees in employment-related claims and issues.

Ben has successfully litigated claims of harassment and discrimination based on sex, race, disability, pregnancy, age, and sexual orientation. Ben has successfully resolved claims involving employers who retaliate against employees for complaining about unlawful activity. A large portion of Ben’s practice consists of representing clients regarding complicated wage-and-hour issues arising under both state and federal law. Ben also has significant experience in the non-compete, non-disclosure, non-solicit, and trade secret context.

Ben spends a considerable amount of his practice on counseling employers. He has written employee handbooks for employers of all sizes and in various industries. He has written employment agreements for individuals in a wide variety of industries and has considerable experience drafting non-competes and other restrictive covenants. He counsels employers of all sizes on day-to-day employment issues including wage-and-hour, best practices for disciplining and terminating, accommodating disabilities, and best practices for avoiding liability for discrimination and harassment. He routinely conducts internal investigations into alleged harassment and routinely audits employers’ wage-and-hour practices for compliance with governing laws.

Because Ben represents both employers and employees in employment claims, he approaches problems with a unique view that allows him to understand how opposing counsel approach and evaluate litigation.
