    Labor is having a moment. Over the past year, established unions and grassroots workers’ movements have had success in organizing workers, including in traditionally non-unionized sectors. At the same time, the National Labor Relations Board seeks to make it easier for unions to organize workers but harder for employers to campaign against unionization. In addition, the Board is contemplating new penalties, such as consequential damages, for employers who commit unfair labor practices. Please join us for a discussion of these trends and how all employers may be impacted by an emboldened labor movement and developments at the NLRB.

    Rob Fisher

    Partner, Labor & Employment

    Seyfarth Shaw

    Rob serves as outside labor and employment counsel to his clients, who depend on him to advise them across the spectrum of labor and employment law while understanding their culture and business objectives.

    Mid-market and large national employers look to Rob for help navigating their most complex legal challenges, such as dealing with labor unions, defending wage-and-hour and executive disputes, and for day-to-day advice to help align their employment strategies with their business goals.

    Dedicated to client service, Rob is regularly called upon to handle complex labor and employment matters. In the area of traditional labor law, Rob helps negotiate game-changing labor agreements, defends unfair labor practice charges, and helps non-union employers avoid unionization altogether. Rob also handles ERISA-related matters, especially those relating to unionized workforces. A significant part of Rob's practice is defending employers in wage-and-hour litigation, including both putative class and collective actions and single plaintiff cases. In addition, Rob provides day-to-day advice and counseling to clients regarding difficult employment issues and compliance with federal and state law.

    Rob has handled matters across the spectrum of labor and employment law for over 20 years. Because his perspective is not narrowly focused, he is able to aid clients when areas of labor and employment law intersect. For example, compensation schemes in collective bargaining agreements often raise complicated federal and state wage and hour issues, and Rob is able to guide his clients at the bargaining table while aiding them with legal compliance. Rob has extensive experience in a number of key industries—higher education, technology, retail, telecommunications, and manufacturing—and understands these industries often face unique issues.

    Rob is proud to be part of Seyfarth's international team of labor and employment attorneys who are dedicated to client service. He enjoys collaborating with his colleagues to handle some of the most complex matters in the field.
