Robinson+Cole is one of the few firms in New England to offer a full array of employment law services to employers, including counseling, litigation, immigration, benefits, labor relations, union avoidance, and training.
Our employment lawyers counsel manufacturers on matters such as hiring, investigations, wage and hour compliance, individual terminations, and federal and state employments. We also advise manufacturers about drafting and negotiating non-competition agreements and any resulting litigation.
Labor Relations | Union Avoidance
Our labor lawyers counsel, advise, and represent both unionized and non-unionized clients in developing corporate-wide, multi-facility labor relations strategies. We negotiate collective bargaining agreements and represent our clients in contract administration, grievance handling and arbitration, strike consultation, and National Labor Relations Board and court proceedings. We make it a point to learn your business so that labor relations strategies coincide with your operational objective. We also work with clients to develop communication strategies and proactive initiatives that encourage positive employee relations, helping employers lawfully avoid unions.
For more than 40 years, our Immigration Group has guided employers through the process of obtaining temporary and permanent work authorization for their global workforce. We have served as preferred immigration counsel for a variety of manufacturing companies, including a Fortune 50 manufacturer, for over 15 years. Using Six Sigma Green Belt certifications, the Immigration Group manages the immigration process for clients in the most efficient and cost- effective manner.
