Taft’s Labor and Employment practice group has received national recognition for the services it provides nation-wide for clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to mid-sized and small employers in the private and public sector. Taft’s attorneys are recognized in publications such as The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA: America’s Leading Business Lawyers, and Indiana, Minnesota and Ohio Super Lawyers. These accolades follow upon the legacy that began with Taft’s Labor and Employment group’s founder, J. Mack Swigert, who worked with the late Senator Robert A. Taft to level the playing field for employers with the Taft-Hartley amendments to the National Labor Relations Act.
Taft’s team of nearly 80 labor and employment attorneys offer clients extensive experience in the wide range of legal services needed to manage the complex relationship between employers and employees.
We provide guidance to employers on a strategic basis in all labor and employment areas, including hiring, firing, layoffs, discipline, leaves of absence, promotions, pay practices, investigating employee complaints, harassment and diversity training, affirmative action plans and review and drafting of employer policies. We help employers comply with the panoply of employment laws.
