Labor & Employment

Today’s business world is complex, and the need to respond quickly to uncertain market conditions can lead managers to make employment decisions that adversely affect one or more employees. Our Labor & Employment Practice Group can provide advice and counsel to employers and employees before adverse action is implemented resulting in lengthy and costly formal proceedings such as mediation, arbitration, or litigation.

Attorneys in our Labor & Employment Practice Group have represented employers and individuals in arbitration, labor disputes, and matters asserting violations of the National Labor Relations Act, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. We have represented employers and employees in proceedings involving violations of the Equal Pay Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act, as well as other federal and state wage and hour laws.

Our Labor & Employment Practice Group experience extends to complex litigation and dispute resolution involving employment, ERISA, and civil rights claims under a variety of federal and state laws, including Titles VII and IX. These cases may be class-based, brought collectively, or on behalf of individuals. Practice areas include discrimination based on gender, age, race, disability, national origin, religion, or veteran status, and claims involving governmental entities.
