At Capozzi Adler we represent unionized and non-union employers, including those in the health care industry, in disputes with their employees.
Our firm is experienced in matters such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, the Civil Rights Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, ERISA, the Equal Employment Opportunity laws, and other federal, state, and local laws governing the employee/employer relationship. If you have questions or concerns about these areas or any others, we can help.
When clients have issues with respect to union relationships, we counsel them on union avoidance, where our firm handles all phases of either administrative and court litigation that may arise from organizing efforts and unfair labor practice changes. For clients who have a union in their workplace, we assist in the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements, handle arbitrations and unfair labor practice charges, and we provide advice on the continuing relationship with unions and unionized employees.
We have successfully handled a number of strikes on behalf of our clients, and we have successfully enjoined these work stoppages where appropriate. Although our efforts are directed to litigation avoidance, we recognize that any employment and labor matter requires litigation to be an integral part of representation. Our firm’s litigation experience encompasses virtually any type of employment-related lawsuit. When litigation is required, we’re prepared to achieve the best possible results for our clients.
Is your employee manual outdated? Are you certain it’s protecting the legal interests of your facility? The workplace is becoming a maze of regulatory and legal traps for employers. In order to protect yourself from potential lawsuits from employees, your best defense is to provide the most up-to-date employee manual possible.
Employee handbooks must be in compliance with all current workplace regulations such as Workers’ Compensation, Unemployment Compensation, Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, the Civil Rights Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, ERISA, the Equal Employment Opportunity laws, and other federal, state, and local laws.
We can help you modify your employee manual so it better serves to protect you in the event of a dispute with a former or current employee or develop a new manual that will best protect your interests as an employer.
