There is no substitute for our experience in advising and defending clients on hot-button, high-risk labor and employment law issues involving sexual harassment, discrimination, immigration, social media, investigations, agreements, classifications, reductions in force, wage and hour, whistleblowers, government audits, retaliation claims, and violations involving the ADA, FMLA, and OSHA and other state or federal statutes. We represent clients in all forms of traditional labor matters including organizing campaigns and collective bargaining negotiations. We also develop proactive policies and procedures, affirmative action programs, and diversity and inclusion programs. We regularly conduct on-site training programs for managers and employers on all a variety of topics in labor and employment law.
