KENTUCKY EMPLOYER LABOR LAW ATTORNEYS
Employers face a daily onslaught of compliance issues, from wage and hour considerations and hiring and firing, to inter-employee disputes and workplace misconduct prevention. Labor issues multiply the complexity of these challenges and can be difficult to manage. That’s where the McBrayer team comes in, assisting employers of any size with labor law issues of any scope. We are traditional, management-side labor lawyers, defending employers’ interests when dealing with unions and their representatives, collective bargaining, labor disputes, and other issues under the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”). We assist our clients to reach positive outcomes with labor issues, and we educate them and provide ongoing support to prevent problems before they occur.
EMPOWERING EMPLOYERS WITH TRAINING, PREVENTION AND PREPARATION STRATEGIES
We assist our clients with strategies designed to further employee satisfaction and relations, ensure union avoidance, and comply with the NLRA. We also assist with the next line of defense in training management and frontline supervisors on best practices when facing a union campaign, and we create strategies to respond to union efforts to organize the workforce.
BRINGING STRENGTH TO THE BARGAINING TABLE
Our attorneys work with employers to create constructive results from the collective bargaining process by evaluating the financial and non-economic goals of both our client and the union members. We then identify and implement an effective bargaining process, meeting and negotiating with the designated union representatives to safeguard a motivated and productive workforce. When a collective bargaining agreement is in place, we represent employers in arbitration proceedings if a grievance is filed.
REPRESENTING EMPLOYERS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
We represent employers before the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”), investigating and responding to Unfair Labor Practice charges alleging everything from discrimination to failure to bargain, and employer interaction with the NLRB can occur even without union representation or a contract. If a complaint is issued, we then represent our clients in an Unfair Labor Practice trial – we’re with our clients every step of the way.
