Labor and Employment Law

Many of our Labor and Employment attorneys are focused on working with our employer clients to anticipate and address employment issues such as workplace investigations, employment discrimination and worker's compensation.

Labor and Employment Law Department

With a full-service Labor and Employment Law practice, we represent employers and individuals in all facets and stages of the labor and employment relationship. 

Much of this practice is focused on working with our employer clients to proactively anticipate and address employment issues that regularly arise in the conduct of business. We provide efficient and practical advice and counsel to help our employer clients best accomplish their business objectives and foster productive relationships with their employees. Our attorneys believe that education of employers is one of the most effective means for achieving fewer employment claims and maintaining a harmonious work environment, and we work with our clients to identify and take preventative measures designed to reduce potential labor and employment exposure.

However, when labor and employment disputes do arise, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to handle virtually all litigation and administrative matters.  We represent clients in lawsuits before state and federal courts, as well as in administrative proceedings before state and federal agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Washington State Human Rights Commission, Employment Security Division, Washington Office of Administrative Hearings, National Labor Relations Board and Public Employment Relations Commission.
