Employment and Labor Practice
Capozzi & Associates, P.C., represents unionized and non-union employers in connection with disputes with their employees, including many of our healthcare clients. The Firm is experienced in representing clients on such matters as the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, the Civil Rights Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, ERISA, the Equal Employment Opportunity laws, and other federal, state, and local laws governing the employment relationship.
Clients who have issues with respect to union relationships are counseled on union avoidance, where our Firm handles all phases of either administrative and court litigation that may arise from organizing efforts and unfair labor practice changes. For clients that have a union, we assist in the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements, handle arbitrations and unfair labor practice charges, and provide advice on the continuing relationship with unions and unionized employees. We have successfully handled a number of strikes on behalf of our clients, and have enjoined these work stoppages where appropriate. Although our efforts are directed to litigation avoidance, Capozzi & Associates, P.C. recognizes that any employment and labor matter requires litigation to be an integral part of representation. The Firm's litigation experience encompasses virtually any type of employment related lawsuit; and, when litigation is required, we are prepared to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

We’ve become aware that many of our clients’ employee manuals are outdated or don’t protect the legal interests of their facilities. The workplace is becoming a maze of regulatory and legal traps for employers. In order to protect yourself from potential lawsuits from employees, your best defense is providing the most up to date employee manual as possible. A proper employee manual must be in compliance with all current workplace regulations such as Workmens’ Compensation, Unemployment Compensation, Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, the Civil Rights Act, the National Labor Relations Act, the Equal Pay Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, ERISA, the Equal Employment Opportunity laws, and other federal, state, and local laws. We would be happy to consult with you on how to most effectively modify your Employee Manual to ensure the greatest potential for success in the event you should run into a dispute with a former or current employee. We are happy to provide consultation on a flat fee basis (click here for rates) or at our usual hourly rates at your option.
