The firm's attorneys stress preventive labor and employment relations and regularly counsel employers on all aspects of labor and employment law, including confidentiality and non-competition agreements, drug testing, family leave, affirmative action, plant closings, workplace violence, unions, and wage and hour issues, as well as compliance with new developments in the law.
