Labor & Employment
The escalation of federal regulations, monetary incentives, and economic difficulties has led to an increased frequency of lawsuits filed against employers. Employer-employee relationships are heavily regulated, making it easy for a dispute to have intense legal ramifications. Not only can a lawsuit be costly to a company—especially if the company loses—it can also be expensive to pursue on the part of the plaintiff, meaning alternative forms of dispute resolution may be ideal.
Hart & David provides litigation and dispute resolution for clients in the Chicago-Metro area with respect to labor and employment issues. We strive to achieve the best results for our clients, whether you are an employee who has been wronged by an employer or if you are a company facing a labor dispute. Our expertise can help you get the best solution possible.For Employers
Keeping up with the latest federal, state, and local standards is key to protecting your company from costly litigation, but it’s not always enough. You need someone who can swiftly resolve disputes in the event that they occur—and chances are, they will. This is where our labor and employment attorneys come in.
Litigation drains your company’s resources by pulling away funds, time, and personnel from vital operational tasks. Alternative dispute resolution methods, such as arbitration and mediation, can help preserve employer-employee relations and avoid the heavy expenses of going to court. In some cases, litigation may be unavoidable, and you will need a lawyer with skill in that area. Hart & David can assist you with litigation and disputes arising from alleged violations of federal and state standards, including Title VII, the Equal Rights Act, ADA, OSHA, and others.For Employees
Hart & David works with employees who are facing issues with workers compensation, wrongful discharge, discrimination, harassment, breach of contract, etc. Sometimes, litigation is the best route to take, and that will require a skilled attorney working with you to secure the results you deserve. However, in many instances, issues may be resolved with arbitration, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. These methods are much less costly, and may help repair employer-employee relationships.
Regardless of the method taken, you need skilled legal counseling and representation. Hart & David can provide you with advising founded in our extensive legal experience.
