The government enacts new measures just about every day requiring you to adjust your employment practices. You need attorneys who will advocate for your interests, help you navigate these changes, and ensure you remain legally compliant.
The Fisher Phillips Government Relations Practice Group knows that you are faced with a fluid and evolving legislative and regulatory climate at the federal, state and local levels of government. It is critical that you are well-informed about proposed legislation and regulation so you can have your voice heard by Congress, the executive branch, and state and local governments. Our attorneys, well-versed in the area of government affairs, will help you achieve this important goal.
WE'LL PARTNER WITH YOU
We can partner with you to cooperatively protect and promote your interests in the area of workplace law at all levels of government. Our practice focuses on all aspects of workplace legislation and regulations, spanning each of our practice areas and industry practice groups. We ensure the availability of high-level legal and technical resources to support the important efforts of legislators and executive office staff who defend employer and employee rights against special-interest groups espousing an “anti-employer” or “pro-union” agenda, and support balance in workplace laws.
WE'LL KEEP YOU INFORMED
We make it our business to monitor relevant workplace legislation introduced in Congress, state legislatures and key local municipalities, and provide regular updates on legislative and regulatory activity. We help you stay apprised of emerging legislative and regulatory developments impacting your interests, so you can have a voice for fair and appropriate policymaking at all levels of government.
WE'LL REPRESENT YOU
We ensure that your interests are properly represented before policymakers by offering an array of services designed to advance your interests. We support positive initiatives and oppose initiatives that would inappropriately restrict employers and business while providing suggestions for improvement. We represent employer views during formal rulemakings by federal, state and local regulatory agencies by filing comments on your behalf, assisting you to file your own comments, and testifying before federal, state and local legislative committees and subcommittees. We also file amicus curiae briefs with the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), other federal and state courts, and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), lending your voice to important decisions that will impact your business.
