We advise employers on preventative employment law practices such as:

  • Management advice, counsel, and training
  • Audit of personnel and wage practices
  • Development of employee handbooks and policies
  • Employment and separation agreements
  • Daily operational policies and practices
  • Adverse impact assessments, affirmative action plans, and DEI training
  • Immigration law policies and practices

Ease Tomorrow’s Employment Concerns with Valuable Training

Investing in the knowledge of your team is often the first line of defense against potential labor and employment claims, which is why Fraser Stryker offers employers several unique training opportunities through our “Fundamentals for Lawful Management” program. Training programs are geared toward educating employees on how to spot legal problems in the workplace and avoid conduct that can create liability.

Defending Employment & Labor Disputes

Workplace disputes can take a toll on a company’s productivity, morale, and bottom line. When employment issues arise, it is crucial to have a law firm on your side that has built a reputation on navigating complex negotiations and providing strong litigation representation. Fraser Stryker’s employment attorneys are experienced in representing employers throughout the litigation process for:

  • Contract claims and wage disputes
  • Employment discrimination and retaliation claims
  • Wrongful discharge actions
  • Labor arbitrations
  • Union organizing
  • Collective bargaining agreements
  • Risk management and workers’ compensation claim

Our employment lawyers regularly advocate for our clients before state and federal courts, as well as administrative agencies, such as NLRB, DOL, OSHA, EEOC, OFCCP, DHS, ICE, and nationwide state and local agencies, including the NEOC and ICRC.

Effective Counsel for Risk Management & Workers’ Compensation Matters

From counseling clients on reporting and compliance issues to defending employers before the Workers’ Compensation Court, our skilled lawyers pull from their first-hand knowledge to provide effective solutions for clients.

We regularly represent workers’ compensation insurance carriers as well as self-insured employers and have recognized expertise in the qualification of, and compliance with, requirements for self-insured status in Nebraska. As such, we have successfully developed and gained Workers’ Compensation Court approval for self-insurers’ use of trusts in place of the court requirement of surety bonds as additional financial security.
