Higher education institutions are major employers in our communities, creating immense opportunity. But the changing maze of rules governing labor and employment presents unique obstacles.
Institutions need the right partner to help keep their business moving forward—handling relations with tenured faculty and researchers, managing myriad job descriptions across the same department and executive compensation scrutiny.
Our comprehensive, “one-stop shop” covers the gamut.
From employee terminations and collective bargaining agreements, to tenure disputes, qualified retirement plans and fiduciary counseling, we are constantly tracking evolving employment laws and market trends to spot what’s next. Keeping your goals at the forefront, we institute state-of-the-art practices and innovative trainings to help you build a better workplace at your institution.
We use our creative approach for advice, strategic planning, training, preventive action, alternative dispute resolution and litigation if and when necessary.
