Labor & Employment Law Practice:

AP&S attorneys assist public and private-sector employers, both unionized and union-free, in complying with complex laws and avoiding litigation by dealing with employees effectively, fairly and legally. In addition to providing day-to-day employment counseling, we also handle the ever-changing array of matters facing employers today, including:

  • National Labor Relations Board matters;
  • Collective bargaining;
  • Defending against unfair labor practice and other charges under FLSA, Title VII, ADA, FMLA, OSHA and other laws;
  • Representing employers before government agencies and tribunals;
  • Dealing with virtually every aspect of employment relationships.

We work hand-in-hand with employers to anticipate and short-circuit issues before they become major problems, drafting smart policies and useful employee handbooks, counseling employers on various federal and state statutes, conducting management and employee training, assisting in force reductions and plant closings, and negotiating and drafting employment agreements.
