Employment / HR Counsel

Unlike many attorneys who practice employment law, Rocha GC’s founding member, attorney William Rocha, has managed a Human Resources department, overseeing all employment related issues for a 500+ employee privately held corporation. Consequently, Rocha GC has a unique grasp of both the legal and business components of recruitment, hiring, terminations, employment/severance/non-competition agreements, discrimination and harassment, employee benefits, 401K, or other employment matters that corporations face in their daily operations.

Moreover, the law surrounding employment related issues is constantly changing, and varies significantly depending on the state in which a company resides. This is especially problematic where a company has businesses that span multiple states. Thus, Rocha GC reviews and advises corporations on their employee handbooks, company policies and training to ensure that they comply with legal requirements and/or company goals.

Rocha GC litigates before state and federal courts, as well as administrative agencies, including the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the New York Division of Human Rights, and the Department of Unemployment Assistance. The firm can handle all aspects of employment litigation, from attending administrative hearings and court appearances, to conducting discovery, drafting dispositive motions, handling settlement negotiations, and going to trial if necessary.
