    Our Approach

    Zukowski, Rogers, Flood & McArdle – the largest law firm in McHenry County, Illinois – provides employment and labor-related legal services to a wide range of private and public entities.

    Unlike many smaller law firms, our attorneys have the advantage of experience on both sides of employment issues because they also have appeared as counsel to, and as prosecutors for, public agencies.

    We believe in educating clients and working with them to draft pro-active approaches that are designed to avoid costly litigation. That’s why ZRFM’s employment lawyers are called upon to conduct workshops and deliver talks on sexual harassment, employee handbooks, record-keeping compliance, and social media policies.

    To learn more about the details of employment law – including employee handbooks, at will employment, confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, discrimination and harassment complaints, and the rights to pay and vacation pay for fired workers – please view our Employment Law FAQs.
