Employer Counseling

Our certified labor and employment lawyers counsel employers in all areas of day-to-day personnel practices and employee relations matters. To help your company avoid fines and legal claims, we offer guidance on employment situations including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), and many other state and federal laws.

Labor Relations

Because South Carolina is a right-to-work state, it is the least unionized state in the US. We can represent you in representation cases before the NLRB and provide legal advice to maintain compliance during a union campaign. 

We also regularly assist employers with unionized workforces in collective bargaining and labor-management relations. Also, if a labor dispute arises, we can deal with strikes, unfair labor practice charges before the NLRB, and grievances and arbitration.
