Overview

Jackson Walker labor and employment lawyers  try labor and employment lawsuits, counsel  clients on increasingly complex workplace laws and regulations, and represent  clients before federal, state, and local labor and employment agencies, such as the NLRB, the EEOC, and OSHA.

Their litigation practice includes complex executive compensation matters, class/collective actions, trade secret/unfair competition cases, breach of fiduciary duty and executive malfeasance cases.  Their vast labor and employment litigation experience is the platform from which they provide advice and counsel to help  clients solve workplace challenges covering the entire range of employment issues.  They focus both on traditional labor issues–including elections, contract negotiations, arbitration, strikes and lockouts–to employment law areas, such as discrimination, disability, Family and Medical Leave Act, workplace safety, and wage and hour issues.

They practice employment law backed by the resources of a full service firm in corporate, tax, bankruptcy, intellectual property, securities, employee benefits, oil and gas, media, complex litigation, cybersecurity, and all the areas offered by Jackson Walker’s over 400 attorneys.
