Labor & Employment

Labor & employment law issues are often both complex and emotionally driven.  If you are a senior manager or a human resources professional or, conversely, an employee, former employee or a union, and you believe that there has been inappropriate behavior or improper management action, you want to find a mediator who has broad based experience with such claims both as an advocate and as a mediator.  Phrased differently, you want someone with substantive expertise, practical problem solving know-how, and balance and experience as a neutral.

Bruce Harrison has long experience working with labor and employment litigated and non-litigated disputes and understands the diverse issues and facts embedded in such matters. His goal is to help those with workplace related claims against or by management to overcome and resolve those issues.  He takes the time to understand the facts and unique needs of opposing parties and finds ways to help them to settle their differences in an informal and dignified atmosphere.
