Labor & Employment

The Roberts & Stevens Labor and Employment Law practice advises employers of all sizes, from family-run startups to large corporations, in all aspects of employment counseling and litigation. In today’s workplace every aspect of the relationship between employers and employees, from initial hiring procedure through daily operation, wages, promotions, and reviews, to terminations, retirement and benefits is influenced by labor and employment law.

Familiarity with these laws is a key strength of Roberts & Stevens’ Labor and Employment Law attorneys. Our clients have come to rely upon our seasoned expertise, dedicated service, creative solutions, and practical advice.

We represent clients in all areas of labor and employment law, and we provide practical, business-minded advice and counsel. We work with our clients to prevent problems before they come up by providing day-to-day counseling to employers on an array of human resource issues, devising proactive strategies to avoid labor problems, and consulting on all policy and benefit matters.
