Many of our employment and labor law attorneys are members of the Society for Human Resource Management and other professional and employer trade associations. We maintain the Iowa Employer Law Blog and communicate with clients about current legal trends and issues in employment and labor law. We also conduct an annual employment law seminar for clients to keep them up-to-date on current legal issues related to the management of their human resources.
Our firm’s employment and labor law attorneys have extensive experience providing employment law advice – representing and counseling clients in matters of traditional labor law and providing general employment law advice. We represent private and public sector employers as well as a number of trade associations with specific interests in labor and employment issues, including Associated Builders and Contractors of Iowa. Our goal is to help our clients minimize the risk of legal liability while accomplishing their important business objectives.
