Our firm handles the full range of labor cases involving wage and hour violations, overtime pay, and working conditions. We regularly negotiate for fair working conditions and advise labor unions and businesses about their rights and obligations. We resolve disputes through negotiations, mediation, arbitration, administrative proceedings and civil litigation. In addition, we help businesses avoid disputes by delivering comprehensive consultations and strategic planning.
Labor Unions and Collective Bargaining Rights
Employees have the right to form a union, join a union, assist a union with its organizational activities or decline to be part of or participate in a union. Businesses are not permitted to discriminate against union members or interfere with their efforts to organize a union and must bargain in good faith with union representatives. Unions have a duty to their members to act in their best interests in job-related negotiations and activities. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) protects the crucial collective bargaining rights of workers, regardless of whether they are members of a union.
Gunterfirm understands labor laws and how they apply to complex situations. We guide our clients toward effective solutions that improve workplace conditions and wages. Our firm works directly with employees and their union representatives to achieve the workplace standards employees are entitled to.
Employers may inadvertently violate workers’ rights if they are not aware of their legal obligations. When union activities interfere with business operations or when the business is trying to take reasonable cost-cutting measures, the line can become especially blurred.
Our law firm counsels businesses on remaining in compliance with labor laws. We also assist employers in resolving issues in a manner that is the least disruptive and costly as possible. Our firm is typically able to reach quick resolution through strategic negotiations, but we are assertive advocates in administrative and courtroom proceedings.
