Human Resource and Employment Law

Our labor and employment attorneys work with business owners, human resource professionals, and insurance companies to successfully counsel and defend employers of all sizes regarding compliance with state and federal employment laws. In addition to defending employers in court, our attorneys represent companies of all sizes before administrative agencies including the EEOC, MDCR, EBIA, OSHA, OFCCP, NLRB and the Department of Labor.

Rhoades McKee attorneys understand that no two clients are the same, and neither are their legal issues. That’s why our labor and employment team takes time to learn each client’s business, company culture, and budget. With that information in hand, our team can craft an effective legal strategy, and you can focus on moving forward with your business goals.

  • ADA Accommodations
  • ADEA
  • Affordable Care Act
  • Civil Rights and EEO
  • COBRA Compliance
  • Collective Bargaining
  • Commission Disputes
  • Disability Issues
