Employment Litigation

We have substantial experience litigating individual and class action claims arising under Title VII, Section 1981, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Equal Pay Act and state human rights laws.  We represent clients in connection with race, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, color, and reverse discrimination claims, and we help our clients implement policies to reduce the risk of future harassment claims.

We appear before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) in complaint cases involving the validity of certification proceedings, plant relocations, subcontracting, furnishing of information, union security matters, picket line misconduct, application of seniority, assistance to unions, secondary boycotts, trespass, successor liability, bargaining obligations, solicitation and distribution of literature, plant closings, severance obligations, expanding units, arbitrability, work stoppages, and striker replacement. We are also involved in many representation cases and we handle certification proceedings, issues pertaining to unit classifications, contract bar, jurisdictional disputes, multi-employer and multi-location units, objections to conduct affecting elections, alter ego status, accretion, and recognitional picketing.
