Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits
Burns & Levinson's Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits attorneys advise clients about all aspects of the employment relationship, from pre-hiring considerations through separations, layoffs and terminations. We counsel employers on strategies for maximizing the effectiveness of their human resource function by avoiding litigation, while navigating the maze of state and federal regulations now governing employers' actions. We assist our clients in developing policies and procedures that assure compliance with governing laws and contracts. In addition, we develop and implement effective training programs for managers and staff.
All of our attorneys are experienced in representing clients in discrimination, wrongful termination, civil rights, sexual harassment, noncompetition and trade secret, and wage and hour compliance suits, both in federal and state court and before administrative agencies. We are often called upon to assist management in conducting internal investigations into such complaints, before they become public.
Our labor relations attorneys advise employers in union organizing campaigns, collective bargaining negotiations, labor arbitrations, representation elections, strikes, picketing, and boycotts.
Our benefits attorneys design, implement, and assist in the administration of employee benefits programs. We have the capacity to establish tax-qualified retirement and welfare benefit plans for employers, which reduce the cost of delivering fringe benefits to employees. Our attorneys also develop executive compensation plans, stock options, deferred compensation arrangements, and retirement plans for executives.
We also assist employers with the immigration issues associated with maintaining a highly skilled workforce.
