Labor & Employment Law

Our labor and employment law practice provides sophisticated representation to our clients on a variety of matters that arise in the modern workplace.  We recognize that employment and labor-related disputes often require prompt and careful attention, and so we are poised to meet those needs of our clients through consultation, advice and, if necessary, representation in civil or administrative proceedings.  Some of the many areas in which our attorneys provide advice and representation on labor and employment-related issues include:

  • Defense of discrimination claims based on sex, race, age, disability, and pregnancy
  • Wage & hour law disputes
  • Development of employment handbooks
  • Employee drug testing
  • Interview procedures and pre-employment screening
  • Employee discipline
  • Computer and e-mail monitoring
  • Leave under the FMLA
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Severance agreements
  • Executive employment contracts
  • Labor requirements under agreements
  • Protection of company trade secrets

We recognize that the most beneficial way to represent employers is to give practical advice on matters that enable them to operate their businesses effectively while complying with applicable laws and regulations.  In this regard, we successfully counsel and guide employer clients in handling employment related problems when they arise, and helping our clients implement employment practices and promulgating effective employment policies that mitigate the risks of, and help to avert, costly litigation and investigation by government entities such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
