BoltNagi, PC labor and employment practice reflects both the breadth and complexity of labor law in the islands, with our lawyers advising clients throughout the United States Virgin Islands on all facets of employment law matters. Preventive counseling is a significant feature of our practice. We routinely advise and assist employers in the development of policies and procedures addressing issues such as harassment, developing employee manuals, and workers compensation. These guidelines, combined with day to day advice on specific matters, are designed to minimize the employer’s legal exposure in all aspects of the employment relationship.
A large part of the firm’s practice is defending employers from claims of discrimination against protected classes or factors, including race, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability under various federal and territorial laws. Our litigation practice also includes cases involving the Territory’s “Wrongful Discharge Act” and “Plant Closing Act” which were authored by the firm’s Managing Attorney. Employment contracts, covenants not to compete, sexual harassment and other employment issues are all incorporated in BoltNagi, PC’s labor and employment practice. We appear before the National Labor Relations Board, as well as the Virgin Islands Department of Labor, federal and territorial courts, as well as alternative dispute resolution forums such as mediation and arbitration.
The firm’s labor and employment attorneys also represent management in traditional labor areas. Our attorneys regularly assist clients with union organizing and election campaigns, collective bargaining, and analyzing and structuring the labor law aspects of mergers and acquisitions. BoltNagi, PC’s traditional labor law practice also includes handling and trying unfair labor practice and arbitration cases.
