You Can Count on Jay P. Holland to Help
You with You Labor abd Employment Matter

Mr. Holland's employment practice group litigates individual and class action cases in the areas discrimination including gender and race as well as harassment, wage and hour disputes under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state law. The group also handles state and federal constitutional claims, breach of contract claims, trade secret and covenant not to compete claims, and state law wrongful termination related claims.

Executive level employees, and employers, are represented in negotiation and drafting of employment agreements, severance packages, and employee manuals. A significant part of Mr. Holland's practice is the representation of "whistleblowers" in cases brought under the federal False Claims Act (Qui Tam cases) to recover funds on behalf of the United States, and to vindicate the rights of whistleblowers who are victims of retaliation.

Several of his cases have been widely reported in the media, such as Lamone vs Burger, et. al (enjoined the State from terminating the chief election official for the State) and the case of Clark, et., al, vs. Prince George's County (obtained a judgment requiring the County to hire 64 firefighters whose offers of employment had been rescinded). Mr. Holland was named Litigation All-Star in Benchmark Magazine (2012).
