Experienced Guidance On Navigating Labor Issues And Disputes In Any Industry
Employees play a big role in the success of any business or organization. However, as with all human situations, conflicts are bound to arise. When those conflicts involve organized labor, the legal nuances become more complex.
At The Swain Law Firm, P.C., we have the experience and knowledge to represent employers in any industry who are facing labor law and employment law issues. Our attorneys draw on decades of experience to provide insightful legal counsel. As business attorneys, we understand the complex considerations that factor into your decisions for charting the course ahead. We know how to balance those considerations to find creative strategies that protect your business interests as well as employee morale.
Strategies For Preventing Labor Conflicts
When it comes to navigating costly labor disputes, prevention is key. Proactive strategies can reduce the risk of conflict by setting clear expectations. You can also establish a more cost-effective framework – such as mediation and arbitration – for addressing conflicts that do arise.
Our legal team can help you implement tailored strategies through tools such as:
- Employee policies and handbooks
- Employment agreements
- Well-drafted contracts
- Disciplinary procedures
- Internal reporting procedures
Careful planning and skilled legal guidance on these kinds of tools can lay the groundwork for successful labor relationships.
Guidance On Labor Disputes
Sometimes, despite your best efforts to prevent them, labor or employment disputes still crop up. Legal guidance is critical for addressing those disputes in an efficient, cost-effective manner. Early intervention can go a long way toward mitigating the risk of costly litigation.
Our lawyers have a wealth of experience navigating employment and labor disputes, including those involving:
- Pay-related disputes such as benefits and overtime pay
- The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
- The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
- Contract disputes
- Interpretation of a collective bargaining agreement
- Working conditions
We can represent you in alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration. Should the dispute proceed to litigation, we are accomplished trial attorneys who know how to build strong cases in court.
