Employment law covers the legal protections you have when you apply for a job, as you negotiate the terms of employment or begin employment, during your employment, upon separation of your employment, and even after you are separated from a company. The attorneys at Kitzer Rochel are experienced Minnesota employment lawyers and have a wide range of knowledge in all areas of employment law, representing employees in each of these phases of their work life.
