Arbitration is a method of alternative dispute resolution where both parties can come together and reach a compromise without trial litigation. Provost Umphrey Law Firm L.L.P., has more than four decades of experience representing clients as they struggle to navigate this often-complex procedure. Trust our knowledge of the law and our attention to detail to guide you to a successful resolution.
Our firm successfully represents employees who are employed in, among others, the petroleum, chemical, communication, and building and construction industries throughout the United States, Canada and Central America. We also represent many of the labor unions who negotiate collective bargaining agreements with employers in the various industries on behalf of those employees while representing them on a day-to-day basis.
Collective bargaining agreements include grievance and arbitration procedures which protect the employees from, among other things, arbitrary and unjust discipline up to and including termination.
Each year, numerous employees are reinstated to their former jobs following our successful handling of the arbitration of their grievances involving terminations as well as lesser disciplinary actions, such as suspensions without pay, and/or demotions.
Our firm also represents employees who have been discriminated against in violation of various Federal and State laws including, but not limited to, those laws which prohibit discrimination based upon age, disability, race, gender, national origin, religion and union activities, certain protected group and/or individual activities including, but not limited to, employer retaliation against employees because of their filing of Workers’ Compensation claims as well as NLRB charges and EEOC charges.
Accordingly, if you have been unlawfully terminated, or otherwise unlawfully discriminated against by your employer, our firm may be able to assist you with such matters.
