Labor & Employment Litigation
We counsel businesses of all sizes and levels of complexity in connection with their day-to-day employment concerns, focusing not only on the many layers of law and regulation which govern the workplace (federal, state and local), but on each employer’s business and operational objectives.
Our client advisory work includes the creation, modification and implementation of workplace rules, problem solving with respect to workplace issues, employee morale and productivity, reductions in force and discrete job eliminations, complaint investigation and resolution and compliance with laws concerning wage and hour, workplace safety and environment, disability and leave issues as well as the assessment and implementation of reasonable accommodations to employees who require same. We also, in conjunction with our Executive Compensation Group, assist our clients in the negotiation and enforcement of employment agreements.
We also defend our employer clients in ever burgeoning workplace claims pertaining to all forms of employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation, whistleblower claims, wage and hour claims (individual and collective actions), wrongful discharge, and contract and severance disputes, and assist our clients in navigating through agency audits and investigations in all relevant areas.
We also represent and counsel employers in connection with their existing collective bargaining relationships with labor organizations and assist our clients in all techniques of preventive labor relations, which include appearance and formal process before the National Labor Relations Board and analogous state agencies.
