Discrimination and Harassment

Employers may be liable for discriminating against an employee, or failing to address discriminatory behavior once reported. But not every employee complaint is legitimate or meets the threshold of an actionable claim. Baroody & O'Toole represents employers or employees in the full spectrum of issues covered by Maryland and federal law:

  • Employment discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability or sexual orientation
  • Sexual harassment/hostile work environment
  • Pregnancy discrimination
  • Wrongful discharge or whistleblower retaliation

Trial lawyers Neal Baroody and Thomas O'Toole have 40 years of combined litigation experience. They have worked on a number of employment law cases during this time. They will seek a negotiated or mediated resolution, or try the case in front of a jury, depending on the circumstances and wishes of the client.

Employment Agreements

Employers have a need to protect intellectual property rights and prevent the loss of talent to competitors. Employees have the right to fair compensation and freedom to pursue other opportunities. Where these interests overlap, Baroody & O'Toole can negotiate, review or litigate restrictive covenants and other employee agreements:

  • Non-compete agreements
  • Non-solicitation agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Employment contracts
  • Severance agreements (including continuation of benefits)
  • Wage and hour claims

Employer Consulting

Baroody & O'Toole provides proactive counsel to Baltimore area employers on human resources policy development to prevent discrimination, address complaints and otherwise minimize the business's liability in employment law disputes.
