Labor Law concerns the relationships between employers, employees and/or labor unions.
In large part, if an employee is a member of a labor union, his or her employment issues will be addressed through his or her union. Sometimes, however, unions and/or its members find it necessary to obtain private counsel. A union member may seek private counsel if the employee/member has an issue with his or her labor union’s failure to property represent his or her interests. In other cases, labor unions also choose to seek private counsel for assistance in the grievance/arbitration process. And, even if a labor union is not in the picture, federal labor law, namely, Section 7 of the NLRA, is implicated in a variety of scenarios regarding employee activities. If you have a claim that involves both both federal labor and federal or state employment laws, it is imperative that you obtain counsel to handle your federal labor law claim in order to maintain consistency and the viability of your employment law claim.
