Employment And Labor Law

Employees are a critical part of your business. Helping manage your business through complex employment matters is an essential part of our relationship with our clients. At Cowden & Humphrey Co. LPA, we believe that the best defense begins with practical consultation before challenges arise.

We Provide Business Solutions

We encourage our clients to call us first to assure that employment situations and problems are handled according to law, but in a way that suits the employer's management style and culture. While employment issues invoke legal issues, they are ultimately business issues, and we focus on providing the advice you need to work through those business issues.

Employment Law Is Complex And Ever Changing

Our attorneys provide a wide range of employment law and labor law services. From employment agreements to employment litigation, we assist employers with navigating the complex state and federal laws governing a company's employment relationships.

Large or small, public or private, union or union free, all employers must be aware of the employment laws that govern them. Our attorneys are skilled at assisting businesses with training and compliance for their employment matters.

A Practical, Consultative Approach

More important, we bring our practical, results-oriented philosophy to consulting on labor and employment matters to ensure the company receives the most value for its invested time and resources.
