Labor and Employment


Throughout its many years of representing employers (and employees as counsel for several unions), our attorneys understand the need to have the assistance of trained professionals when at the negotiating table and when facing employment issues. From successfully defending labor and employment litigation in court and arbitration to providing practice advice to Human Resources personnel, we work diligently, thoroughly and efficiently as labor and employment advisors so that our clients can successfully navigate the legal spectrum facing employees.

 

Our record is tried and true in the areas of labor and employment. Our firm has successfully negotiated police, dispatch, fire and public works contracts, as well as labor contracts for school districts and park districts. We have handled numerous grievances, arbitrations, and unfair labor practice cases before the Illinois Labor Relations Board, other administrative review agencies and in both state and federal courts. Our attorneys have decades of experience at the negotiating table, always working to deliver creative, cost-effective solutions which are fair for all parties involved. Most importantly, our labor practice keeps the clients at the forefront with their needs and concerns the top priority.

 

When labor and employment matters result in litigation, our skilled attorneys work diligently to bring the suit to a successful conclusion. We have defended against discrimination, harassment, retaliation, whistleblower, employee misconduct, wage violations and other claims through to favorable judgments or low settlements to avoid the cost of lengthy, drawn-out litigation.

 

Additionally, several attorneys at the firm have presented at conferences and have conducted workshops for our clients with respect to labor and employment issues.
