McLaughlin Stauffer & Shakleeoffers expertise in a wide variety of labor/employment related issues, including discrimination, harassment, whistleblower, Family/Medical leave and wage and hour issues. We have represented both management and employees in such areas as contract negotiation (individual and collective bargaining), discrimination and harassment claims, and restrictive covenants (non-competes and confidentiality) in employment agreement litigation. We also offer counseling as to employer expectations and employee rights under both federal and state statutes, including, Family Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Law Against Discrimination, the Civil Rights Act, the Conscientious Employer Protection Act (CEPA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Title VII and the American With Disabilities Act (ADA).
As part of our municipal and public sector practice, we have represented public entities through all aspects of their relationships with employees, and are uniquely qualified to handle the special set of laws and circumstances that arise in the public sector area. This includes collective negotiations, grievance and interest arbitrations, unfair practice charges and other contested matters before the Public Employment Relations Commission, Civil Service Commission, Division of Pension and Benefits and other administrative agencies, as well as in State and Federal Court.
Our representation of management and labor has allowed us to view the employment relationship from both perspectives, giving us more insight in advising each side what to expect from and of the other. Our practice encompasses actions in both state and federal court, as well as administrative agencies.
