A generation ago, the practice area now known as labor and employment law was referred to simply as “labor law,” reflecting a focus on labor relations law, governed primarily by the National Labor Relations Act.
As the prevalence and power of unions have dwindled, and employment litigation involving nonunion employees has mushroomed, other aspects of employment law have come to dominate the employment practices of many “labor and employment” lawyers and firms.
As a result, far fewer lawyers today have extensive experience in labor relations law, which can be more challenging and complex than other areas of employment law.
Employers needing legal services in traditional labor relations law thus require specialized expertise not possessed by many “labor and employment” attorneys.
