Labor LawLabor Law is a critical component to any business that has employees.  Business entities from all industrial sectors and governmental units, school districts and other employers rely upon Pickrel, Schaeffer & Ebeling’s services when interacting with public and/or private sector labor unions. Understanding the crucial role employee relations play in the success of any business, PS&E’s Labor team has advised and counseled management on a wide variety of labor law issues including:


  • Bargaining
  • Grievances, arbitration and mediation
  • Wage/hour/overtime/prevailing wage rates
  • Union organizing, NLRB/SERB matters, union decertification
  • Whistle blowers, false claim allegations
  • Strikes, lockouts and picketing
  • Substance abuse and drug/alcohol testing
  • Civil service matters
  • Unfair labor practice proceedings


PS&E’s Labor Law team has negotiated collective bargaining agreements on behalf of public and private employers. In addition, the attorneys on the Labor Law team routinely represent our clients’ interests in State and Federal Courts, before the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the United States Department of Labor, the Ohio State Employment Relations Board, the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and many other administrative agencies of the State and Federal Government. The PS&E Labor Law team provides professional, proficient and cost-effective representation for its management-based clients.
