Labor Law

Labor Law is a critical component of any business that has employees. Business entities from all industrial sectors and governmental units, school districts, and other employers rely upon Pickrel, Schaeffer & Ebeling’s services when interacting with public and/or private sector labor unions. Understanding the crucial role employee relations play in the success of any business, PS&E’s Labor team has advised and counseled management on a wide variety of labor law issues including:

  • Bargaining
  • Grievances, arbitration, and mediation
  • Wage/hour/overtime/prevailing wage rates
  • Union organizing, NLRB/SERB matters, union decertification
  • Whistleblowers, false claim allegations
  • Strikes, lockouts, and picketing
  • Substance abuse and drug/alcohol testing
  • Civil service matters
  • Unfair labor practice proceedings

PSE’s Labor Law team has negotiated collective bargaining agreements for public and private employers. In addition, the attorneys on the Labor Law team routinely represent our client’s interests in State and Federal Courts, before the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the United States Department of Labor, the Ohio State Employment Relations Board, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and many other administrative agencies of the State and Federal Government. The PSE Labor Law team provides professional, proficient, and cost-effective representation for its management-based clients.
