Grand Rapids Labor & Employment Attorneys

The Grand Rapids labor and employment attorneys at Kalniz, Iorio & Reardon specialize in representing employees and labor unions in a wide range of employment related issues. We work hard to ensure that our clients know their rights and can effectively invoke them when disputes arise with employers. Federal and state labor and employment laws can be complex and we have the experience and knowledge to help navigate clients through challenging legal situations.

Our firm represents clients in employment related matters and regularly appears on their behalf before state agencies like:

  • The Michigan Employment Relations Commission
  • The Michigan Teachers’ Tenure Commission
  • The Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency
  • The National Labor Relations Board

We practice in state and federal courts throughout Michigan and Ohio. We also assist clients in preparing and filing complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission and the Michigan Department of Civil Rights.

Aggressive Michigan Employment Attorneys

We are aggressive litigators who effectively advocate on behalf of clients when a resolution acceptable to all parties cannot be reached. The attorneys at Kalniz, Iorio & Reardon are able to identify the potential causes of action to litigate a wrongful termination, provide advice on the options available to the client and ultimately pursue cases in court or before the appropriate government agencies when necessary. We have a firm grasp of labor and employment laws and can both explain the law to our clients and appeal to the law on their behalf.

Experienced Negotiators

We are experienced negotiators who listen to our clients so that we can understand their goals and objectives. By understanding our clients’ goals and objectives, we are better able to communicate and negotiate with employers to achieve desired outcomes. When negotiations do not result in an agreeable settlement, we explain options and, where approved and appropriate, initiate litigation to pursue our clients’ objectives.

Your Advocates for Fairness in the Workplace

Individuals faced with an employment dispute — like a termination, long term suspension or demotion — often experience stress and are uncertain about how they should respond and whether they have any rights to assert. The loss of a job can place additional financial and emotional burdens on families. The attorneys at Kalniz, Iorio & Reardon understand the importance of being treated fairly in the workplace and know the rights unions and employees possess under the law.

If you have a question about your employment rights or union labor law, contact the Grand Rapids attorneys at Kalniz, Iorio & Reardon.
