Calfee’s labor and employment attorneys represent publicly and privately held corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships, including unionized and non-union employers, and public-sector entities. Besides day to day employment counseling, we handle administrative complaints and litigation concerning state and federal discrimination laws, National Labor Relations Act, Family & Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, and state workers’ compensation systems. Additionally, our lawyers provide aggressive, cost-effective defense of claims of wrongful discharge and violations of individual employment rights and excel in enforcing post-employment agreements, such as non-compete and confidentiality agreements.
In the union setting, our lawyers represent management in grievances, arbitrations, and collective bargaining negotiations. Calfee attorneys also provide labor and employment advice to clients in the context of mergers, acquisitions and other corporate transactions, including the potential effects of union agreements, severance programs, and state and federal plant closing/mass layoff laws.
With the continuing challenges presented by the increasing number and complexities of laws affecting the workplace, Calfee’s labor and employment attorneys provide timely guidance and counsel to employers on all employment issues. We are committed to addressing workplace-related concerns and disputes that often arise on a moment’s notice. Working with human resources professionals, our practitioners assist clients in avoiding potential liabilities and in maintaining working environments committed to the mutual respect and appreciation of individual contributions.
