With Delaware’s largest labor and employment practice, Young Conaway represents private and public sector employers in all facets of management-side employment and labor law.  Our lawyers have extensive litigation experience and regularly represent clients in Delaware's state and federal trial and appellate courts, before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the U.S. and Delaware Departments of Labor, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), and other state and federal administrative tribunals. We also provide day-to-day and long-term advice aimed at preventing problems before they occur. This proactive approach includes counseling regarding personnel policies and practices, implementation and enforcement of restrictive covenants, arbitration programs and employment law compliance audits. Attorneys in the section advise employers regarding legal considerations involving issues such as hiring, firing, promotions, and layoffs.
