Our comprehensive labor and employment law practice is designed to keep employers in compliance with the myriad of local, state and federal laws, rules and regulations that touch upon every aspect of the workplace in one way or another. With a deep working knowledge of applicable laws and broad experience with enforcement and administrative agencies, we advise companies on regulatory compliance and represent them in administrative enforcement actions when necessary. Always with an eye toward preventing problems before they start, we assist companies with planning, training and investigations on the front-end to attain and maintain legal compliance.
Beyond compliance, we help organizations formulate and implement employment policies and practices, plan and implement other steps to create and maintain the necessary labor and/or human resources infrastructure they need and work culture they desire, and otherwise respond to workplace challenges in ways that are aligned with and best promote their business objectives. We advise and defend employers at every stage of the employment relationship, from recruitment, testing, and hiring to discipline and discharge, to the protection of trade secrets and other business assets in the context of an increasingly mobile and transitory workforce. We also counsel employers on, and defend them against claims related to, the employment and labor relations implications of the full range of corporate structural decisions, including consolidations, reorganizations, reductions-in-force, and mergers and acquisitions.
