A Full-Service Law Firm, Putting Clients First Since 1953

Counsel And Representation In Employment And Labor Law

The employee-employer relationship can be a serious source of conflict. Tension between the interests of a company and the rights of workers inevitably leads to disputes, especially when one side feels used or abused.

At Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, PC, we emphasize preventive law. Through careful drafting of policies, contracts and agreements, we strive to avoid costly and disruptive conflicts. Through counsel and negotiation, we work to resolve disputes before they escalate. When conflicts cannot be averted or resolved, we are prepared and equipped to litigate aggressively.

We provide counsel and representation for a broad spectrum of employment and labor law matters. Our core clients are small businesses and corporations, but we regularly represent executives and employees as well. Based in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, our employment law practice covers Luzerne, Carbon, Schuylkill and all surrounding counties.
