Labor & Employment
In today’s world employee relations strategies need to be in strict compliance with a complicated web of ever changing laws and regulations. Surveys of corporate risk managers routinely identify employment and employee benefits issues among their top concerns for financial exposure.
In addition to monetary risks, failure to prevent and monitor potential employment problems can distract management, waste time and limit resources. Braun Kendrick works to understand your business, your legal issues and how best to protect the reputation, business practices and performance of you, your department, and your company.
We counsel employers as they design, manage and carry out HR initiatives in a business world of increasing pressures and regulations. In our changing legislative and economic climate, these programs have ranged from salary audits to layoffs, healthcare coverage, COBRA costs, personnel decisions, and management training.
Braun Kendrick attorneys have extensive experience representing and counseling private and public employers with their labor issues. As in most facets of your business a concise and well thought out plan before a problem arises is the key to successfully avoiding undesirable outcomes. Our labor and employment attorneys are skilled at helping you and your managers understand the current state of labor law and any potential changes on the horizon – to help you be proactive. In addition to planning we regularly assist our corporate clients in negotiating and drafting labor agreements; representation in grievance arbitrations; unfair labor practice proceedings; union elections; strikes and other work stoppages; consultation on wage/hour issues; and many other labor and employment-related issues and problems.
