Arkansas Labor Law Violations
Helping unions and employee associations protect their members
Many employers harbor a great deal of resentment against employees who organize or unionize for the right to better pay and working conditions. Unions struggle to deal with employers who refuse to negotiate in good faith. And even once the contract is signed, it is all too common for intransigent employers to simply refuse to honor these agreements and dare the union to stop them. But the Sanford Law Firm is a staunch advocate for organized labor in Arkansas and throughout the United States. Our experienced Arkansas labor lawyers work with unions and employee organizations to hold employers accountable for unfair labor practices and wage and hour violations that affect their members.
Fighting unfair labor and employment practices
When management refuses to respect the power of an organized workforce, legal action may become necessary. As a respected labor law firm with a national practice, the Sanford Law Firm has helped numerous unions and employee organizations in Arkansas assert their legal rights against employers. We have a thorough understanding of the applicable law in Arkansas, including federal statutes such as the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act as well as Arkansas labor and employment laws and regulations.
When employers fail to respect bargained-for terms and conditions of employment, our Arkansas labor attorneys have the knowledge and resources to help our clients pursue all appropriate legal avenues, including:
- Charges of unfair labor practices with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB)
- Actions in federal or state court to enjoin illegal employer practices
- Actions to recover unpaid wages or other compensation on behalf of groups of wronged employees
While the collective bargaining process can be smooth and mutually beneficial to both employees and management, this cannot be the case when employers refuse to respect a union’s right to organize and negotiate. We at the Sanford Law Firm serve as a strong voice for labor organizations, helping unions negotiate effectively with management and sending a strong message that bad faith and unfair practices will not be tolerated.
