Our Practice Labor and Employment

We simplify one of the most complicated areas of the law.

Labor and Employment continues to be an evolving and complicated area of law for public schools. This includes traditional topics like union contract negotiations and employee discipline, as well as general labor relations, contract management, personnel policies, fringe benefits, and more. The questions and needs vary by district or entity and even time of year. However, we are well-prepared on all of these issues and many more. 

Our experienced attorneys in employment law have well over 100 years of labor relations expertise. We were actively involved in negotiating some of Pennsylvania’s first collective bargaining agreements under Act 195 in 1970, which granted public employees and teachers the right to strike. We also contributed guidance to Pennsylvania lawmakers on the implementation of Act 88 of 1992, a significant update to Pennsylvania’s collective bargaining law.
