We defend clients in litigation in state and federal courts and before administrative and regulatory agencies in matters including discrimination, harassment, compensation, breach of contract, and wrongful discharge or violation of other federal, state or local laws. We regularly conduct seminars for managerial and supervisory personnel, as well as other employees, designed to ensure compliance with relevant laws, encourage good employee relations and avoid unnecessary litigation.
For unionized clients, we review existing labor contracts, grievance settlements and arbitration awards to identify employer rights under existing agreements, develop proposals and alternative positions for collective bargaining, and draft contractual provisions. We act as spokesperson at the bargaining table in both individual and multi-employer industry negotiations in a variety of different industries with diverse unions. We also provide day-to-day advice regarding the administration of the labor contract including the handling of grievances, represent clients in arbitrations and National Labor Relations Board proceedings, and assist clients in preparing for and defeating boycotts and strikes.
