Vedder Price

Employment Litigation and Avoidance Vedder Service

We represent clients in virtually all aspects of the employer-employee relationship. Our attorneys are highly experienced in litigation involving restrictive covenants in employee agreements, labor management and relations, equal employment, wrongful discharge and Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) matters, among others.

  • While litigation is unavoidable in some situations, we seek to help clients solve employment problems before they become costly—including providing counsel related to:
  • Personnel decisions, interviewing and screening processes, maintaining personnel records and using progressive discipline effectively
  • Strategic alternatives to problem terminations
  • Alternative dispute resolution procedures
  • Reduction-in-force methodologies
  • Compliance with WARN Act requirements related to mass layoffs and plant closings
  • Workforce composition analyses
  • Pension and welfare benefit plans and plan changes affecting salaried and union-represented employees
  • Workplace safety and health programs and compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Act requirements
