Resolution of Disputes
Our attorneys resolve disputes before federal and state courts, administrative agencies, and arbitration panels. We regularly represent employers in litigation, arbitrations, mediations, class-action suits, unfair labor practice hearings and administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Labor and other governmental agencies.
Cooperative Approach to Preventive Counseling
Stradley Ronon attorneys work together with clients to prevent employment-related problems. We not only address complex issues like FLSA, FMLA and ADA compliance, but also assist with everyday questions regarding hiring and firing, employee discipline and benefit plans. We frequently draft and review employee policy manuals, handbooks, employment applications, contracts and other materials and advise clients on sound employment practices, working conditions and procedures.
The Changing Workplace
We actively advise clients on modern strategies for a changing workplace. We anticipate trends in the workplace and recommend policies and procedures to address novel issues, including contingent workforces, the proliferation of social media and other electronic communications, and the increased use of alternative dispute resolution agreements.
Keeping Clients Informed
Our lawyers regularly conduct on-site training and presentations and work with clients to develop “best practices,” all designed and customized to address the unique needs and concerns of each workplace. We also keep clients apprised of important developments in employment and labor law through our monthly NewsFlashes, which explore relevant topics and offer practical advice without legalese (see publications below).
The Stradley Difference
Stradley Ronon offers uniquely balanced client service, providing the sophistication and international reach our clients require while maintaining the personal, client-focused attention of a midsize firm.
