Labor & Employment
From the smallest businesses to the largest multinational corporations, labor and employment laws impact virtually every aspect of daily operations for employers. The constantly expanding web of labor and employment regulations on the federal, state, county and city level affect each stage of the employment life cycle from hiring to termination. Almost every action taken by an employer – including hiring, job descriptions, wages, reviews, promotions, employee benefits, mergers and accusations and terminations – implicates some aspect of labor and employment law, and even the careful employer can unwittingly run afoul of these complex regulations or face an unsupported allegation of misconduct.
The labor and employment attorneys at Schuyler, Roche & Crisham have decades of experience representing private companies and public sector employers in both unionized and non-unionized environments. We regularly provide advice and counsel to employers on labor and employment matters ranging from routine, daily issues to the most complex and significant organizational decisions. We defend all types of labor and employment litigation. We work with our transactional lawyers to assist companies in performing due diligence and structuring business transactions. We advise employers and others on all aspects of employee benefit plans. And we regularly represent employers in collective bargaining, arbitration, unfair labor practice proceedings, and representation matters under the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act and the National Labor Relations Act.
