Throughout our history, SW&M has supported the business growth of hundreds of financial institutions in matters related to labor and employment. Our attorneys focus on preventing issues through strategic planning and working closely with clients to minimize or eliminate their exposure to liability prior to potentially costly litigation.

Our Labor and Employment Law practice area covers the entire employment lifecycle, providing expert guidance and support for:

  • Development and maintenance of clear employment agreements and handbooks;
  • Executive compensation and benefits plans, including deferred compensation arrangements;
  • Employment, tax and benefits compliance (including the Affordable Care Act);
  • Minimization of liability for wrongful termination or violation of legal standards — including the WARN Act and state equivalents (for both individual terminations and major restructures or reductions in force); and
  • Investigation and navigation of unemployment claims, workers’ compensation claims, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance and allegations of discrimination or harassment.
