Employment & Labor Law

We represent management in all aspects of employment and labor law.  Employment law encompasses dozens of distinct areas of law, all of which are essential to the smooth operation of your business, whether commercial or non-profit.  These laws affect your decisions involving hiring, discrimination, disability accommodation, harassment, compensation, safety, union relationships, leaves of absence, discipline, termination, and work force reduction, to name just a few.

With over thirty years of experience handling employment and labor law issues, we are available at any time to provide advice and guidance to employers regarding all workplace and personnel matters, including the following:

  • Recruitment and hiring

Should a current or former employee file a complaint against you in state or federal court or before an administrative agency, it is important that you promptly obtain experienced legal counsel.  We will provide a vigorous defense, keeping you informed at every stage.

If you have Employers Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI), ask your insurer to contact us about representing you in any matters covered by your policy. We are often approved and even recommended by EPLI insurers to represent insured employers.

We represent and advise employers in union-related matters, ranging from contract negotiation to grievance resolution and arbitration to defending complaints before the National Labor Relations Board, but also offer employers guidance in preserving union-free status. If a union attempts to organize your employers, contact us immediately for direction and counsel during the organizing campaign.  Finally, be aware that even non-unionized employees have certain rights under the National Labor Relations Act.

In short, when you have any concerns regarding employment or labor issues, call us for advice.
