At Helsell Fetterman, we are committed to your cause.

Employment and Labor

At Helsell Fetterman we understand the issues you face when entering, managing, or terminating employment relationships. We guide you through the many trials and tribulations that can occur in the workplace and protect your important legal rights. We regularly represent employers, although we have also represented employees, which gives us unique and balanced insight that we apply to accomplish win-win solutions for difficult employment issues. When such solutions are not possible, we have plenty of experience representing clients in investigations conducted by government agencies such as the EEOC and in federal and state courts.
