Best & Flanagan’s Employment & Labor lawyers advise employers regarding policies and practices that facilitate openness and respect for employees. We understand the importance of fair and consistent employment practices and open lines of communication. We believe that those practices are the most effective way to maintain direct employer/employee relationships.
We assist employers dealing with union organizing campaigns. We provide advice under the National Labor Relations Act and state laws regarding communications with employees handling various union issues. For clients with a certified union already present, we negotiate collective bargaining agreements and counsel our clients regarding grievances and other contract issues.
We maintain strong working relationships with federal and state mediators. In addition, we represent clients before the National Labor Relations Board, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service and the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services.
