Labor and Employment

Saxton & Stump’s Labor and Employment team has extensive expertise on a wide range of employment and business-related issues that employers face.  We represent and counsel entities of all size and type, including health care organizations, manufacturers, retailers and service industry businesses.

Litigation

Our Labor and Employment team represents clients in employment litigation before federal and state courts and administrative agencies, including the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the National Labor Relations Board.  Our lawyers have many years of experience representing clients in:

  • Discrimination, harassment and retaliation charges and litigation;
  • Wage and hour disputes, including collective and class action matters;
  • Issues and litigation related to violations of trade secret, non-competition and confidentiality obligations; and
  • Labor grievances and collective bargaining.

Counseling

Our Labor and Employment Law team further provides compliance guidance with respect to all federal, state and local employment and labor laws including:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act
  • Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act
  • Pennsylvania Wage Payment and Collection Law
  • Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act
  • Family Medical Leave Act
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  • Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  • Pennsylvania Human Relations Act
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
  • National Labor Relations Act

As a team, our mission involves risk management.  Our counseling to clients focuses on the “proactive” steps that should be taken so that the “reactive” steps to litigation are minimized.  To that end, we counsel employers on best practices with respect to the interview, discipline and termination process.  We also assist with reviewing, revising and drafting employment documents to help mitigate claims.  Artfully drafted employee applications, handbooks, policies, and employment, non-competition and severance agreements are key to insulating an employer from liability.  Further, we provide on-site training to practice groups, human resource personnel, management and business owners regarding compliance with all employment laws, internal investigations, social media issues, discipline, employee relations and any other employment-related matter.
