Education

Labor & Employment

Educational systems serve more than students. They also support a vast number of employees that range from teachers and administrative staff to custodians and principals.

Lashly & Baer attorneys have extensive experience in the hiring, discipline and dismissal of employees at educational institutions. You can also turn to our attorneys for negotiating with labor groups representing school employees and in monitoring recent issues affecting labor and employment law.
