Employment & Labor Law
Employment law covers a complex network of laws that control how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. The goals of labor laws are to equalize the bargaining power between employers and employees. The laws also primarily deal with the relationship between employers and unions.
This practice area includes the representation of small labor associations during contract negotiations, as well as mediation, arbitration, and representation through the grievance process. It also includes representation on wage, labor, and employment discrimination issues before the Department of Labor and Commission on Human Rights Opportunities (CHRO) as well as civil litigation. Please see the mediation section for further explanation.
Many labor and employment issues arise from:
- Wrongful Termination
- Sexual Harassment
- Employment Contract
- Collective Bargaining Representation
- Termination Agreement
