Locating, hiring and retaining talented and committed employees can give a company a competitive edge. But the costs of employment litigation and the paying out of an award if your business loses employment litigation, can quickly negate that competitive edge. The Business Practice of Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley stands ready to assist you in two ways. First, we work to help you avoid employment-related suits through proactive legal counsel and sound policy implementation. Second, we provide aggressive and effective employment litigation representation in employment-related lawsuits.
We offer experienced employment law counsel and are routinely consulted on a wide array of employment law matters. We can work with you to develop policies and procedures and can draft employment agreements, manuals, handbooks and severance packages.
We also provide representation in all types of employment litigation. Common claims and charges include:
- Wrongful termination and wrongful discharge

Our attorneys have broad experience representing clients in employment litigation. Additionally, we can represent you in investigations and hearings before government agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Georgia Department of Labor.
