Labor and Employment

Intro

The labor and employment attorneys at Warner provide the counsel you need to comply with ever-changing employment laws—and the firepower you demand when your decisions are challenged in court or before an administrative agency.

More than 800 employers have turned to us for comprehensive employment relations advice. We work with publicly traded and privately held companies, with union and non-union workforces, on hiring, promoting, supervising, disciplining and firing employees.

To reduce your risk and ensure your workplace is effectively and efficiently managed, we work with you in advance of a difficult decision, such as whether to terminate a poor performer or conduct a sexual harassment investigation. Compliance with the letter—and the spirit—of the law is our goal. Skilled in crisis management, we also can provide on-the-ground support in the event of a workplace fatality, act of violence or other incident.

In addition, our attorneys represent employers in court and before state and federal agencies on compliance issues related to EEO, ADA, FMLA, OSHA and MiOSHA, FLSA, ERISA, WARN and other laws.
