We represent employers on a wide range of employment and labor matters. Our practice includes regular counseling regarding discrimination and harassment claims, Family Medical Leave Act requests, unemployment claims, wage and hour compliance, OSHA charges, violations and fines, and employment disciplinary matters which may arise on a day to day basis for our clients. We also prepare employee manuals and policies and conduct training sessions for supervisors.
We have represented our clients before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, and various municipal human relations commissions. We also defend employment cases in state and federal court.
On the private business side of employment law, in addition to preparing and negotiating employment contracts, we have successfully defended non-competition and confidentiality agreements for the protection of our clients in preliminary injunctions and related civil lawsuits.
We also provide traditional labor relations services to both union and merit shop employers. We have defended numerous unfair labor practices charges before the National Labor Relations Board, as well as handled union organizing drives, elections, mass picketing, secondary boycotts, trade jurisdictional disputes, successorship claims and other labor disputes. We also advise clients on corporate matters involving unionized operations, such as the acquisition/sale of unionized businesses, application of the WARN Act, and joint employer/alter ego issues. We have litigated ERISA and employee benefit claims that arise from collective bargaining agreements of our clients as well as their subcontractors.
Our clients for whom we perform these services are from industries such as technology, retail, manufacturing, construction, health care and professional services.
