Higher Education Employment, Labor and Immigration

Our lawyers have a great depth of experience in addressing all aspects of personnel and employment law issues. This includes representing colleges and universities in defending all types of discrimination and wrongful discharge claims, union avoidance, collective bargaining, handling grievance and arbitration matters. We regularly address Title VII and Title IX claims, wage and hour, workers’ compensation/disability, OSHA, Family and Medical Leave issues and all other types of employment issues.

In addition, our lawyers have conducted numerous seminars and training sessions (e.g., on issues such as discrimination/harassment, proper documentation and evaluation, conducting internal investigations) as part of the practice group’s emphasis on providing preventive advice and ongoing counseling to assist preventing claims.

Our immigration services include planning for and obtaining temporary visas and permanent residence status for employees and providing advice regarding issues that arise with foreign students. We also have extensive experience in obtaining U.S. permanent residence status for universities on behalf of their employees by obtaining labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor under the regular PERM process and the special handling process made available to universities and colleges or petitioning the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service to classify individuals as outstanding researchers and those with extraordinary abilities.
