Solving Problems for Mississippi Employers

Daniel Coker’s employment lawyers help public and private employers throughout Mississippi solve problems, offering businesses common sense, practical, cost-effective ways to navigate the minefield of state and federal employment laws. For many years, Daniel Coker’s lawyers have counseled employers on ever-changing employment laws and assisted businesses with a wide variety of matters, including the preparation of employment contracts and handbooks, hiring and firing decisions, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and sexual harassment training policies and procedures.

In today’s world, disputes cannot always be solved internally, and when that occurs, our attorneys are ready to assist employers with their extensive litigation experience before administrative bodies (such as the EEOC, OSHA, and the NLRB) and in state and federal courts.
