Conducting Internal Union Investigations And Disciplinary Matters
Pitta LLP has advised and represented labor unions in New York City for more than 40 years. Our labor law attorneys are regularly called upon to conduct internal union investigations to detect and remediate dishonesty, fraud and corruption, as well as to investigate complaints of workplace discrimination, violence or harassment.
We have extensive experience in advising labor unions in New York and New Jersey with regard to internal disciplinary matters brought under the union’s own, or any parent union’s, constitution and bylaws. Additionally, we counsel local and parent unions in matters of union-imposed trusteeships/supervisions.
Pitta LLP represents unions in grievance mediation and arbitration proceedings, as well as in proceedings before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
Committed To Union Strength And Integrity
We are lifelong champions for labor, and our goal with internal union investigations is to assist labor unions in their compliance with all federal, state and local labor and employment laws. We also draft employee handbooks and employment policies for union member employees.
In related matters, we regularly represent our labor union clients before the New York State Division of Human Rights, the New York City Commission on Human Rights and the State of New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. We also represent unions in all New York and New Jersey venues for federal and state court litigations.
