Labor Relations & Workforce
Working hard to ensure our clients have strong working relationships.
Whether you’re an OEM, supplier, or, like us, an automotive law firm, your team is one of the biggest factors driving your success. Our labor and employment team has walked the plant floors, worked extensively in the auto market and understands the unique challenges auto manufacturers and suppliers face every day — from unions and strikes to trade secrets and immigration issues. We counsel on the complete range of issues arising in the employer/employee context, from hiring, discipline and termination, to immigration, benefits, wage and hour, to safety, leave management and reasonable accommodation.
On a routine basis our attorneys draft and enforce employment agreements, joint-development agreements and restrictive covenants to protect your company’s information assets while maintaining employee talent and competitive positioning. We also have considerable experience handling collective bargaining, responses to grievances and labor arbitrations, as well as class and collective actions, including those brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
