Fred chairs the firm's Labor and Employment Department. For 30 years, he has successfully represented clients in employment discrimination litigation, union avoidance campaigns, collective bargaining, and wage and hour matters around the country. He has also helped clients avoid employee-relations difficulties by providing proactive advice and counsel on the day-to-day issues that arise during the course of an employment relationship.

He regularly represents employer interests in employment discrimination, wage and hour, and contract-based litigation claims in both state and federal court and before various administrative agencies. In the employment discrimination and wrongful discharge arena, Fred's representation encompasses common law claims such as breach of contract and public policy violations as well as claims under employment statutes such as Title VII, the ADA, the ADEA, the FMLA, the FLSA, and many other local, state, and federal laws and regulations.

In addition, Fred routinely represents employers facing union organizing campaigns and provides advice and advocacy on union avoidance, bargaining-unit composition, and representational proceedings. He also works closely with unionized employers in connection with unfair labor practice charges before the NLRB, grievance representation, collective bargaining agreement negotiations, strike readiness activities, and so-called "hybrid" 301 actions.
