Overview

The workplace is a reflection of the economy and society around it. Economic swings and social change impact the workplace and challenge employers.  

To succeed, employers must build and maintain a positive, high-performing, cost-effective workplace. Multi-layered, ever changing and expanding, state and federal workplace laws, regulations, and decisions of courts and agencies burden employers in achieving workplace goals and objectives, regardless of business or industry.

Employers need a strategic partner who understands their business goals to overcome the burdens and meet the challenges. Bodman’s Workplace Law Group is that partner. We work with employers to meet the increasing need for practical, innovative guidance on workplace issues. Our team has both an in-depth understanding of labor and employment law and a deep appreciation of our clients’ need for quick, direct answers to help them achieve concrete objectives. We provide innovative problem solving to promote a more positive workplace.

The Workplace Law Group offers employers a full range of legal services, whether workers are hourly or salaried; technical or professional; blue, green or white collar; or something in between. From talent acquisition to onboarding to layoff, retirement, or separation, we cover policy, process, agreements, union avoidance, litigation, and the bargaining and administration of labor contracts. We help the employer make the workplace really work.
