Personnel

Leasor Crass advises school districts in personnel and employment law. We routinely review and draft employment contracts, including probationary, term and continuing contracts, superintendent contracts, and advise clients regarding reassignment, resignation, termination, non-renewal and separation agreements. Our attorneys also advise and represent districts in employee claims of age discrimination, racial discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, violation of whistleblower law, wrongful termination, wage and hour issues, and breach of contract.

Our team of attorneys also represent school districts at all levels of personnel grievances, issues involving the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, employment benefits, workers’ compensation, remediation, suspension, evaluation and appraisal, certification requirements, professional immunity, and responses to requests for information in an employee’s file.

Additionally, Leasor Crass’s attorneys assist clients in any investigation involving the Office of Civil Rights, Texas Commission on Human Rights, and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
