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.

  • 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
