Retail Industry


Your industry’s bottom line is impacted by labor like no other. And your workplace lawyers need to be familiar with all aspects of your business in order to be effective, whether you’re a big-box chain, a convenience store, a multi-unit operation, or a local retailer.

The Fisher Phillips Retail Industry Practice Group understands the issues that are unique to your industry. By working with us, you benefit from our familiarity with retail industry employment issues that allows us to address problems quickly and effectively.

Prevention and Consultation
We believe it is better to avoid legal problems than to defend them. That is why we provide cost-effective and practical solutions to the problems that retail employers face every day through a robust advice-and-counsel practice. Among other things, we help you determine how to maintain a union-free environment, ensure that compensation and time-recording practices comply with wage and hour laws, counsel on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility issues, and assist with the many legal and practical challenges that multi-unit retail employers face in training and monitoring your high-turnover workforce. 

We provide training sessions specifically tailored for your organization to ensure compliance with the law and with best human resources practices. The training sessions can be delivered to your human resources team, managers, or employees. 

Defense of Legal Actions
Our Retail Industry Practice Group includes seasoned trial lawyers who have successfully defended retailers in court and before government agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the Department of Labor (DOL), and local and state agencies across the country. Our focus areas include handling employment discrimination, retaliation, harassment and wrongful termination lawsuits, customer discrimination claims, wage-and-hour lawsuits, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) matters, and unionization issues. We also regularly represent retailers in arbitration proceedings.
