Labor and Employment

All businesses, whatever the size, have human resource needs. We understand that your employees can be your most valuable assets, as well as one of the most challenging aspects of managing your business. At The Lynch Law Group, we act as trusted advisors to our clients, counseling them on effective personnel management practices and guiding them through a variety of employment issues.

We strive to help our clients minimize the risk of employment litigation through planning, preparation, and attention to human resource management. However, when it’s time to go to court, our lawyers bring more than 20 years of experience defending clients against charges of discrimination and wage and payment claims, in state and federal courts and administrative fora in Pennsylvania and neighboring states.

In addition, we have designed a reasonable Alternative Fee Structure to provide small businesses with easy access to legal advice and assistance in labor and employment matters, as well as updated regulatory and sensitive guidance at an affordable price.
