Clients, both employers and employees, have engaged our professionals to advise regarding certain employment benefits including life insurance; health insurance; short-term and long-term disability insurance; sick leave; paid vacation; pensions; 401(k) and 403(b) plans; tuition reimbursement; relocation expenses; housing; profit sharing; childcare benefits; other benefits. Employment law governs the rights and duties between employers and workers. The laws protect the employers’ interest as well as workers’ conditions and treatment in the employment relationship. Employment law is derived from federal, state and local statutes and ordinances as well as court and agency rulings. A particular employment relationship may also be governed by contract. Our attorneys have successfully represented employers in collective bargaining negotiations and both employers and employees in termination and severance matters. We have successfully represented clients before the Nation Labor Relations Board, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, the Bureau of Labor and industry and the Unemployment Compensation Board.
