Helping employers build strong labor relations

Employees make your business tick. Building strong relationships with your workforce supports your functionality and progress. Adhering to the strict laws and policies governing labor relations ensures your legal operations. Graefe & Hansen, Ltd. provides employers with day-to-day compliance counseling and just resolutions to workplace disputes that advance labor relations and further your business success.

Supporting productive workplace conditions

Following complex legal procedures takes valuable time away from your real job — running and promoting your business. Graefe & Hansen, Ltd. counsels businesses on procedure and fulfillment under labor law, including:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
  • Workers Compensation Program
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act
  • Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)

Advising employers on compliance and dispute resolution

Graefe & Hansen, Ltd. works with employers to ensure continued compliance with complex Illinois and federal regulations. Even at a company that is diligent about regulatory compliance, however, legal disputes arise. Having proper legal representation to guide your company helps you deal with current disputes in an expedient fashion and gives you the opportunity to avoid potentially problematic situations as you develop your plans for the future. Through exceptional skills in administration, procedure, settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration and court trials, Graefe & Hansen, Ltd. can obtain the best possible solutions in matters concerning:

  • Employee relations management
  • Senior executive appointments and severance
  • Equal employment opportunity commission (EEOC) disputes
  • Trade or labor unions
  • Discrimination-based conflicts
  • Class action audits
  • Benefits issues

Safeguarding your business

Just as your company has certain specific responsibilities to its employees, workers are obligated to comply with work policies and legal requirements that affect your business. Incompetent, unethical or unlawful behavior of a worker has potentially devastating consequences. Graefe & Hansen, Ltd. assists businesses in:

  • Developing clear, written employment policies
  • Drafting employment contracts
  • Drafting non-compete agreements
  • Drafting nondisclosure agreements
  • Addressing suspicions of a worker’s unlawful or unethical acts
  • Dismissing employees
