Business Transitions: Employer Issues

With increasing frequency, employers resort to reductions-in-force to lower costs and remain competitive in their industry. Much Shelist counsels employers on how to best implement reductions-in-force to reduce the risk of litigation. Additionally, our attorneys advise employers on compliance with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act) and state laws relating to plant closings and mass layoffs.

Much Shelist also reviews merger and acquisition agreements and provides counsel on labor and employment issues and due diligence questions that arise during these transactions.
