Amid the Great Rehire, an ongoing movement of companies working to re-staff their businesses after more than two years of pandemic induced employment cessation, the legal narrative surrounding labor and employment has perhaps never been louder. Corporations, now more than ever, need advice from the seasoned professionals in the employment law field. And that’s where Best Lawyers steps in, bringing employers, businesses and CEOs guidance, advice and thought leadership expertise. All this and more are featured in the Second Annual Best Lawyers: The Employment Issue.
This digital publication features lawyers from across the United States who work in all manners of employment law and litigation, from labor and employment law, employee benefits (ERISA) law, ethics and professional responsibility law and workers’ compensation law. From unions to management, claimants to employers, this publication covers an extensive range of legal fields and lists all lawyers recognized in The Best Lawyers in America® and Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America.
Prominent employment lawyer Greg Mansell reveals the current challenges in the two-step conditional certification standard under the Fair Labor Standards Act, while Ulmer & Bern’s William Edwards and Joseph Brennan outline ever-changing legal limits of an employer’s right to act unilaterally and best practices for employers as these issues arise. Bradley Arant Boult Cummings lawyers Anne Yuengert and Stephanie Gaston provide EEOC guidance for employers on the treatment of employees caring for family members, a topic particularly illustrative as many grapple with the effects and aftermath of COVID-19.
Greenberg Traurig lawyers Catherine Holley, Jennifer Corinis and Andrea Nieto delve into how to address trade secrets and confidential information for employers as they dive deeper into the Great Rehire. Lastly, regular Best Lawyers editorial contributor and freelance legal writer Justin Smulison presents our cover story, an in-depth look at the ongoing big war of forcing employees back into the office and the debate over pay transparency.
Best Lawyers is proud to honor all employment law attorneys represented in our publication in the Second Annual Best Lawyers: The Employment Law Issue.
