Jason handles all aspects of labor and employment law: from counseling and advice, to collective bargaining and unfair labor practices charges, to single-plaintiff and class litigation before governmental agencies, arbitrators, and courts.
Jason helps clients avoid employment litigation altogether by offering regular counseling and advice, conducting reviews of policies or agreements, and engaging in negotiations with departed employees where necessary.
Employment litigation is often inevitable for most employers, and Jason has a wide variety of experience to assist clients with adversarial litigation. He has successfully defended discrimination and retaliation claims of all types before governmental agencies, arbitrators, and courts. He has successfully resolved whistleblower complaints and workplace safety citations before OSHA regulators and OSHA administrative law judges. He has sought and won injunctive relief against those who improperly retained or used a client's confidential information or trade secrets, and he has also defended clients who sought to oppose the attempted enforcement of overbroad agreements that unfairly restricted competition.
Jason also has considerable experience with traditional labor matters. Jason has successfully defended against unfair labor practice charges, sustained in arbitration the discipline or discharge of employees under a just cause standard, and engaged in negotiations for new collective bargaining agreements or mid-term adjustments during the course of a contract. Although injunctions in labor contexts are rare, Jason has successfully obtained injunctions prohibiting unlawful blocking during labor disputes.
