Skilled Pennsylvania lawyers help management avoid conflicts and handle arbitration
Our goal is for management to be prepared to respond swiftly and confidently to any union issues. When they occur, our attorneys will be by your side to offer reliable advice. We help employers with:
- Union formation issues — If your employees are looking to organize into a union, we can help you address their concerns and discourage organization. Unions can be backed by significant resources at the national level, so it is imperative to have a comprehensive management strategy when workers consider unionizing.
- Collective bargaining — During bargaining talks, we listen to your employees’ desires and advocate for the well-being of your business. Our knowledge of the practices and conditions in various industries makes us informed advisers.
- Restructuring — When the needs of a business evolve, a company may have to restructure to remain successful. Our attorneys advise management on how to handle buyouts, layoffs, changes to benefit plans and other organizational shifts.
- Strikes — It is important to have a solid contingency plan for your business in case a strike ever occurs. We work with management to develop these plans and to create policies that deter strikes before they happen. If workers strike, we can advise you on operations, public relations and other key concerns.
During arbitration and court proceedings, our lawyers are staunch supporters of employers and commerce. You can rely on us for consistent and solid guidance.
Experienced firm represents employers before the NLRB
Unions and employers must comply with the National Labor Relations Act during collective bargaining. If a regional NLRB director issues an Unfair Labor Practices complaint that does not lead to a settlement, an NLRB Administrative Law Judge will preside over court proceedings where both the employer and the union present their arguments. The attorneys at Hoffman Hlavac & Easterly are strong advocates for employers during all NLRB hearings and any necessary appeals.
