Your Workforce. Our Business.℠
Why You Need Our Employment, Labor & Workforce Management Practice
Our solutions are tailored to your business needs. Hospitals have different labor issues than hotels; tech employees expect different benefits than sales clerks. Because we’ve been in hundreds of workplaces, we know the language, culture, operations, and compensation structures of each industry, as well as the business goals that often drive employer-employee relationships. We can quickly pinpoint where problems may arise and resolve conflicts in and out of court.
Our advice is ahead of the curve. We draw on diverse experience in law, business, and government to help you see around corners and plan for the future. Many of us are former government officials who’ve helped shape and enforce labor and employment laws. As thought leaders in this space, we frequently share our knowledge with clients and friends through annual government briefings, weekly video updates, industry-focused blogs, and more.
We bring a wealth of government experience to the table. Our attorneys have former policy and enforcement experience at:
- Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
- National Labor Relations Board
- U.S. Congress
- U.S. Department of Labor
- U.S. Department of Justice
- The White House
- State and local agencies regulating labor-management relations
