Our lawyers handle all aspects of labor and employment law, representing both employers and employees in the private sector as well as school districts and municipalities.
WORKPLACE DISPUTES AND COMPLIANCE
We frequently deal with a wide array of complex workplace matters such as discrimination, workers compensation, unemployment compensation, force reductions and early retirement programs, federal and state contract compliance, whistleblower laws, executive contracts, wage-hour matters, and labor standards issues.
LABOR RELATIONS EXPERIENCE
We represent management clients in connection with National Labor Relations Board and State Labor Relations Board proceedings such as representation elections and unfair labor practice charges, and collective bargaining. Our team includes a former legal counsel for one of the state’s largest unions.
