Health care organizations are continually challenged to maintain a positive relationship with their employees as they face an ever-widening array of legal and regulatory obligations. What’s more, these obligations are often intertwined. An employer’s actions in one domain of human resources law may very well impact several other employee-related issues. Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek has a sizeable group of extremely well qualified attorneys who dedicate their practice to representing management in all facets of labor relations, employment and employee benefit law. Our experience and breadth of knowledge allows us to help resolve any employer/employee concern.
Why Choose Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek?1. Experience
When faced with sophisticated labor, employment and employee benefit legal matters, experience matters. WHD has the experience. Our Human Resources Practices Group has extensive experience guiding health care clients through complex labor and employment matters, enabling clients to get back to their core business - serving patients. 2. Understanding Your Uniqueness
We recognize that health care organizations are not retail businesses nor manufacturers, but are human service providers with unique issues and concerns. No two health care organizations are the same, so we work hard to develop a clear understanding of each client's mission, vision and pressure points. By placing employment-related issues in the context of the client’s entire scope of services, we can provide innovative, practical and cost-effective solutions. 3. Two-Way Communication
Consistent, open communication is the hallmark of a great attorney-client relationship. When you need us, we will respond promptly. Once a legal issue commences, we keep you informed of the detailed status on an ongoing basis. A collaborative, two-way dialog ensures that we anticipate and address interrelated human resource concerns throughout the health care organization. 4. Ongoing Education
Our holistic approach includes a commitment to continuously update our clients on legal and regulatory developments. For example, we produce a quarterly newsletter and generate periodic e-mail alerts to keep HR management abreast of the changing legal landscape and HR trends. Our team also regularly provides in-house training to top and mid-level managers, as well as front line supervisors on a variety of human resources law issues. Training includes effective supervisory skills and the latest techniques on remaining union-free.
