Our employee benefits and labor lawyers advise transportation companies on all aspects of employer-employee relationships, day-to-day operations and special issues in acquisitions and divestitures. A particular concern of our transportation clients is the regulation of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), and our attorneys have represented many clients before the OSHA Review Commission while in the process creating a solid working relationship with the U.S. Department of Labor's Regional Solicitor. We have recently handled such OSHA matters as a major record-keeping violation case, an asbestos exposure case, and a case involving the use of protective equipment in handling hazardous substances.

In addition to health and safety issues, our attorneys counsel company management on the entire spectrum of labor and employment law matters. This includes traditional labor-management relations, employment discrimination charges and litigation, wage-hour issues, workers' compensation claims, and wrongful discharge allegations, plus those labor and employment issues unique to the transportation industry.
