Building Lasting Legal Relationships One Case At A Time

Addressing Labor And Employment Law Considerations So You Can Focus On Your Business

Labor and Employment Law is challenging to navigate and a rapidly changing area. Employers of all sizes are facing novel legal issues managing their workforce in a post-pandemic world. At Stewart Law Firm PC, I help employers navigate those issues with thoughtfulness and clarity.

As a labor and employment law attorney with 20-plus years of experience, I understand the intricacies of this niche area. I also understand the practical and business considerations that factor into legal decisions. I apply that knowledge as a trusted adviser for employers in both the public and private sectors.

How To Prevent Labor And Employment Disputes

Labor and employment disputes can be a major drain on your organization in terms of time, resources and energy. If you end up in litigation, that toll is even costlier.

A large portion of my practice involves developing proactive strategies to help employers avoid these disputes. By staying ahead of rapidly changing legal standards and regulatory frameworks, I advise clients on risks and vulnerabilities in their labor and employment law practices. To do that, I believe that it is important that I tailor that guidance to the unique challenges, industry, and market in which each client operates.

How To Address Labor And Employment Disputes

When employment disputes arise, early legal intervention is critical. The right tactics can often prevent the dispute from escalating to a burdensome legal problem. The sooner I get involved, the more opportunities I have to change the tide.

When disputes do escalate into formal legal proceedings, dispute resolution processes such as settlement negotiations or arbitration are often fruitful. It is not about weakness; it is about containing costs. I help clients navigate those processes with the goal of obtaining a favorable resolution while avoiding the tremendous expense of full-blown litigation. Should litigation become necessary, I have the trial skills and well-rounded labor and employment law experience necessary to advocate effectively.
