Labor and Employment

Globalization and advanced technology are two factors impacting the culture of the American workplace. Today, businesses need to be prepared for emerging labor and employment issues. Chambliss labor and employment lawyers partner with clients to develop policies and procedures that comply with federal and state employment laws, and that also make good business sense and respect the clients' culture.

As day-to-day issues arise, our lawyers are available to provide prompt pragmatic legal advice. Much attention is given to “preventive maintenance” — counseling clients on employee relations issues before problems arise in order to reduce risk and minimize exposure. Lawyers work not only to educate clients on the law, but also to provide recommendations on the best course of action, based on legal risks, practical business considerations, and the clients’ objectives and goals.
