The complex and dynamic areas of labor and employment law challenge companies of all sizes and industries to fully comply with myriad legal statutes and regulations. In meeting these challenges, employers must understand and manage issues that arise daily and pose significant risk for the profitability of the business. Our labor and employment attorneys have decades of experience delivering practical solutions to labor and employment law issues and are always available to provide guidance and support to assist management in their making informed decisions.
Much of the guidance we furnish clients is designed to avoid problems and minimize exposure. Our approach begins with learning your business to create appropriate policies and procedures designed to avoid litigation, including the drafting of policies, procedures, and employment agreements; supervising internal audits, directing investigations; and training managers and employees about harassment, discrimination, discharge and discipline. When the inevitable dispute arises, our attorneys effectively and efficiently represent clients in negotiating separation agreements, and in litigation at all levels of state and federal courts, in arbitration or mediation, or before administrative agencies. Our attorneys have a record of success defending employers in an array of cases involving wage and hour issues; employee leave and other benefits, discrimination; unfair competition; and union organizing and collective bargaining.
