Employment Relations, Advice & Counseling

The Labor and Employment attorneys at Mickes O’Toole partner with our clients and take a proactive approach to dealing with human resource and employment relations issues. Our attorneys provide thoughtful, individualized legal advice on various day-to-day employment issues, within the context of our client’s overall organizational philosophies, objectives and goals. We understand that the employment decisions our clients make today can have long lasting impact on the future effectiveness of the organization.

Our Labor and Employment practice includes working with employers to take proactive steps to avoid litigation by assisting clients in drafting and modifying employee handbooks and personnel policies, evaluating workforce reduction programs for compliance with EEO requirements and other statutory obligations, such as the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act and the Older Worker Benefit Protection Act.

We frequently conduct on-site seminars for clients on relevant employment topics and emerging labor and employment issues, including FMLA/ADA leave, military leave and re-employment, discipline and discharges, sexual harassment investigations, wage and hour issues, safety and OSHA issues, internal discrimination complaints, interviewing, background checks and hiring practices, and any other issue that might arise in the relationship between employer and employee.

Our team of professionals welcomes
the opportunity to serve your needs.
